Life is Often Too Seriously Taken, so for that reason, I'm going to post a silly poem from time-to-time. These first several will each be taken from a small booklet entitled, Lighten Up! 100 Funny Little Poems, compiled and edited by Bruce Lansky.

Beau Poem

Does anyone remember Jimmy Stewart? He was quite a fellow. A good role model.

We bought him for a watchdog
But he mixes up his ends:
He wags his tail at strangers,
And barks at all our friends.

We got him for protection,
We thought he'd earn his keep.
But he frightens little children ---
When he isn't fast asleep.

He's very fond of hoboes
And gypsies and the like,
But nips the friendly postman
And the newsboy on his bike.

He causes feuds and lawsuits,
he keeps us tense and grim . . .
We bought him for a watchdog,
But we keep watch on him.

The Hunter

The hunter crouches in his blind

'Neath camouflage of every kind,

And conjures up a quacking noise

to lend allure to his decoys.

This grown-up man, with pluck and luck,

Is hoping to outwit a duck.

----Ogden Nash

Dedicated to someone I know.
