I Love Being Nude, and Other Random Bits of Poetry

Nude but not crude


I Love Being Nude

I love being nude,

Though some think it rude.

Whyย I suppose

Do we need to wear clothes?


No other creature

Utilizes this feature.

You don’t need to be brave

To show what God gave.


Some say it offends,

But that really depends.

This is how I was born,

It’s not like it’s porn.


Maybe when it snows

There’s a need to wear clothes,

But the rest of the time,

You show yours, I’ll show mine.


Who care what you show

from your head to your toe.

Your body is sacred

So feel free to go naked.


President Trump

Congratulations Mr Trump

You ran a strong campaign.

How you won many are stumped?

It went against the grain.


Your acceptance speech impressed me,

You were humble in your win.

It gives me much more confidence,

There is a heart within.


Daddy’s Girl/ Mamma’s Boy

Are you Daddy’s little girl,

Or maybe Mamma’s boy?

Or do both parents dote on you

For making life a joy?


Sometimes you form a special bond

With just your mom or dad.

This just happens naturally,

So can’t be seen as bad.


Nowadays couples often split,

Families are torn apart.

The parent that you don’t live with

Often traps your heart.


Maybe you’re an only child,

Or have a single mom or dad.

You have no choice but form a bond

With the only one you have.


No one can judge what’s normal

In society today,

So most situations that you’re in

Are accepted and OK.

Longtime poet but not in the traditional technical sense. I enjoy rhyme but like to experiment and dabble in many different forms and maybe even make up some of my own. There is always a message or lesson I want to promote through my writing, for that reason, my poetry generally shies away from the abstract and obscure. After a lot of procrastinating I have finally self-published my first eBooks of poetry "I Laughed a Smile" and "On the Wings of Eagles" at Lulu.com. Now I find myself branching out and experimenting with short fiction. I have also been fortunate to have two poems chosen to be made into songs and recorded. The first "On the Road to Kingdom Come" by Al Wordlaw, and the second, "If I Could Write a Love Poem" by award-winning Israeli/British singer Tally Koren. I am also finding my services increasingly in demand as a freelance writer and I have ghost-written the text for a number of children's books and educational tutorials. It has taken me many years of searching and restlessness to realise that my life's passion is to write. It saddens me that I wasted so many years not devoting to that, but thinking positively, the experiences gained over those years is now wonderful material for my stories and poems. I want to try to bring a new focus on poetry and try to make it appealing to a new generation of young people and those who thought they never liked or understood it before.

    Yaaay John! Naked is natural, so go for it. I love that poem and the whole round of poems. Well done and enjoyable to read.

      Haha, Phyllis. Just having a bit of fun. Maybe 30 years ago I may have taken a selfie…oh no..smart phones with cameras and such didn’t exist then, thank goodness.

    Oh John, naked? could never understand it. They say that the human form is beautiful: when you are 14, everything after then just gets droopy and swollen and in the end, I appreciate the complexity and miracle of life, but looking at bodies after say 50 odd, ain’t a pretty sight. lol Nice collection John, I also think people should shut up and give Trump a go, that’s who they voted for. Cheers!

    I was writing this from a perspective of maybe 30 years ago, Tony, so don’t worry. As you say, young bodies are beautiful…but things tend to go downhill with age.
    Glad you enjoyed this collection…and yeah it’s only fair Trump has a fair go.

    Cheers back!

    I Love these John , what is this thing called humanity ? The animal world must look at us sometimes and think – ” Oh Boy oh boy what are they wearing ?” I’m not so sure its a great thing either – that may be why we all want to come back as some form of an animal ! Merry Christmas !

  • December 12, 2016 at 6:06 AM

    Hey, thank you, Ed. Just a bit of silliness to bring a smile or two. You could be right about wishing to come back as an animal. Merry Christmas.

    This is so awesome John… loved it

  • December 12, 2016 at 7:51 AM

    Hey, Kurt, glad you enjoyed this rather strange collection.

  • December 13, 2016 at 2:05 PM

    Loved the humor in the first and the fairness of both the first and third..great write John..thank you for sharing..

  • December 13, 2016 at 9:13 PM

    John I truly loved the first one. The flow,was almost flawless. And let’s be honest it takes a lot of courage to go naked. And Trump needs to be given a chance. He can’t be any worse than what we have already. Good work John.~Paul

    • December 13, 2016 at 10:25 PM

      Thank you, Paul. Much appreciated. I agree that Trump at least needs to be given a chance.

    Thank you for reading and enjoying this random bit of silliness, Nithya. Cheers.

    Brought some chuckles. Hats off! Humour is our saviour, isn’t it?!? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • February 19, 2017 at 4:20 AM

    Hi, Surabhi. Haha, glad you got a chuckle out of this bit of silliness. Yes, we need a little light-hearted humour in our lives.

    Well, well were going a little naked here are we, love it. I won’t say more than this, I laid Naked once on a beach with others and it was rather fun, but your right about as we age, the dropping is a sight. Lately I’ve kept my clothes on though mate. As for President Trump, I was behind him all the way and I’m not even American, but a lot has happened since his throne speech;-) The leftist media should let up on him and give the man a chance, I’ve never seen such a Trump hating media puke out what they do on air, it’s a bloody soap opera. Well that’s all I’m going to say about that: Your poems were beautifully expressed, enjoyed both of them my friend.

    Thank you, Vincent, glad you enjoyed this bit of frivolity. Yes, I tend to keep my clothes on these days in public. Don’t want to cause a riot of people running the other way.
    As for Mr Trump, I say just shut up and leave the guy alone. Like it or not he is the elected president. He may run the country into the ground, but then again, he may not. Just wait and see and vote him out at the next election if he fails.

    Ha ha…ya, you might wanna put those pants back on when it snows! You might get frostbite ๐Ÿ™‚ ha..ha..

  • July 20, 2017 at 7:32 PM

    Thank for the …um…tip, Tamara ๐Ÿ™‚ Fortunately, it never snows here so I’m thankful for that..haha
