Lefts, or: Writes

A ‘limerick’

A dense policeman called my words an offense,
For their dense meanings came at his expense.
"Sir, I have my write to right-
So, though those lights ain't so bright,
Can't you just check my poetic license?"

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. So clever, and so funny too! A real winner, David. โค "Can't you just check my poetic license?" I am a little reluctant to try that line on an officer, but you make it very tempting! ๐Ÿ™‚
