My 6-year-old lost two teeth in one day;
and, as always, she had something to say.
To her father the blogger,
she said: Might this not augur
a sweet poem about me- sans cliché?
Dedicated with love to my precious little daughter, who asked me to write a poem on the occasion of her losing two teeth last Friday and then repeated her request to me again several days later (an hour ago).
The U.S. President provoked actual riot. 🤦♂️
Ev'ry grievance he claimed, they would buy it.
Hordes stormed the halls of Congress,
Hell-bent on making a mess...
Well, I s'pose no one thought he'd go quiet!
Must my limericks be funny to you?
I am not at all sure that they do!
So remember this, Bloke:
There's one butt to this joke;
And it flows forth with wet, steamy poo!
I don’t know what came over me yesterday and today, but I promise that I’m done with limericks for a while! 💩
An especially brilliant young feller
Had to sleep underground in a cellar
For his mind was so bright
It would light up the night
Thus bestowing new meaning to 'stellar'
I've failed myself in so many ways
To enumerate them would me take days
But I would never judge you
For when all's said and through
Nothing but my humility stays
There's no point, I suppose, to po-
etry... as I well know... it's not go-
ing to break down the bor-
ders 'tween the owned and the hoar-
ders, wiping asses with it ~ just so!
A mystical Rabbi from Prague
Taught philosophy weekly by vlog;
'Twas recorded by Golem,
Who managed the forum
From the back of Old-New Synagogue
The great Sage, in slow, measured breaths
Gave new meanings to old Shibboleths
But this so flustered Golem
That none could control him
And the truth thus became Golem's death
Came the wild hordes of Gog and Magog,
Cheering Golem's destruction in Prague;
Death had come of God's truth
When self-doubt conquered youth;
Redemption- could emerge from Man's fog
From below, Golem heard the great war,
Grasping then that the truth was much more
Than a threat to forfend,
But a gift to defend,
He arose from the ground and the gore
Thus was Golem's resurrection -
For he was, like men true, a good son;
He thwarted God's plan
By safeguarding Man,
Thus achieving his own redemption
