My Nuts Are Missing

Breakfast time

Healthy cereal and milk

And a few nuts

I like to nibble

On my nuts

Oh no !


“Where art Thou”

No nuts in the larder

Oh my tasty nuts

Not to be found

Not in the bedroom

Only a small home

My nuts can’t be

Far away

Oh nutty me

Tell me now

Where would’ve

You looked

For my nuts



Oh no

My nuts are frozen

Now to find my car keys

Hi, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm a retired, part-time plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for 18 months, and writing poems for nearly 18 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Oh, what a sad time it is when a man is no longer able to find his nuts!! Did you look for evidence of a woman once there but now gone first before checking the freezer? πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ Well, I am glad the mystery has been solved. This was a great intro to your blog for me!


  2. Dammit, Ivor, you’ve got me drying again – this time with laughter. The comments were a hilarious bonus. I’m so glad you directed me to your priceless missing nuts…

    *’drying’ was a typo. I’m leaving it in, ‘cos I think it’s funny)

    1. I’m glad you liked my nuts, and yes the comments were hilarious, haha, especially from the girls, they all seemed to have a keen interest in my nuts. !! And yes I thought “drying” fitted well with the humour β™‘β™‘

      1. That’s Rose !! She’s been with me from my early blog days, and has been of great assistance, and heaps of encouragement, she’s part of the Slasher Monster Magazine editing team. The Magazines support of my poems has been fabulous. ..

      2. That’s it – Rose. I’m terrible at remembering names. I know about the Slasher Monster mag. – I keep meaning to try and get one of my horror poems into it, but I always get distracted and lose myself somewhere along the way.
        Alan, another WP friend, used to get poems published there… but he keeps disappearing…


      3. I’ve been given a whole list of “you should”s. This one will go to the top of the list, since is easier than writing a chap book, or trying to get my life story published, or any of the other things I should do πŸ™‚ xx
        BTW – the madness has begun. I’ve just written a really long, stupid response to a comment below my post “Trickery.” Obviously, I thought it was OK until the moment after I clicked send…
