Funny Poems

Poems can be written about anything. You never know what you can find, even hearing a creak in an old house, hear the wind rustle the leaves, can lead you to write a poem. Writing is something that I do enjoy to do. I also love to read in my spare time, when I don't have assignments due. Even in my youth, I can find something great to write about. This blog is not only a place to express myself in words, but to inspire others to write out their thoughts. As in my last post, I do like to write poems about nature and have a lot of maturity, including the next one:

Life is like a feather
It floats where it can
The wind pulls and twirls it,
It is your decision where it lands

There may be some obstacles
That stop you in your path,
Even though you're small and frail
 Do not be scared to show your wrath

Decisions will help your journey
What ever it may be,
You may meet new things along the way
It's great to have some company

But 'intimate' poems aren't the only things I like to write. Even funny ones are great to come up with. A famous type of poem that is known to be funny is a Limerick. Here are a couple that I have written:

There once was a young baker named Ted
Who liked to bake lots of yummy bread
He sold all of it
In just a minute,
All that baking hurt his little head!

There once was a girl named Pam
Who liked to eat lots of ham
Then she got a stomach ache
So she started eating steak,
But them switched to eating lamb

See? Limericks are made to entertain the reader, and usually they are about someone, and don't make a lot of sense. The trick is that the 1st, 2nd and 5th line rhyme together, and the 3rd and 4th line rhyme together. They are pretty easy to come up with, and can be very funny to read to others. Well I hope you learned something today by reading my blog. No matter what age, you can always enjoy a little laugh!
