Short and funny

Short and funny

No, I am not referring to anyone’s height. When I mean short and funny, I mean poems. So, I hope you are ready for a few laughs.

Ah, yes, animals in poetry. It is not easy telling youngsters that their dog died. I am not really sure if this is the right way to tell…

Doggy Heaven

By Larry Huggins

All doggies go to heaven (or so I’ve been told).

They run and play along the streets of Gold.

Why is heaven such a doggie-delight?

Why, because there’s not a single cat in sight!

Moving on with another short poem written by Jon Bratton. Sex sells, so why not give it a try on this website?

Violets aren’t blue, they’re violet
And only some roses are red
Let’s continue this biology lesson
Ensconced in your bed

Personally I am not in favour of anyone asking me to bed them in this way. But, maybe I am just an exception. But it made me smile though. This was the same reaction reading the poem by Edward Lear. Actually it’s more than a limerick.

There was an Old Man in a boat

By Edward Lear

There was an Old Man in a boat,
Who said, ‘I’m afloat! I’m afloat!’
When they said, ‘No! you aint!’
He was ready to faint,
That unhappy Old Man in a boat.
