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.

The Fly

God in His wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why.

Morning Ritual

Morning Ritual

I get up each morning
And dust off my wits,
Then pick up the paper
And read the obits.
If my name isn't there,
Then I know I'm not dead.
I eat a good breakfast
And go back to bed.


ha! Not when you're a gardener! Or anyone with something to do! ;-)

My Dog

My Dog

My dog is such a gentle soul,
Although he's big, it's true.
He brings the paper in his mouth.
He brings the postman, too!

---- Max Fatchen
