Innocent Courage

She rises, my little girl, a small crown
Of blooms, purple jumper, and white blouseDown
Town, she holds a yellow, blue
Flag on broom stick and walks through
Stepping on toy tanks she found all around.

Last curtain call

Who knew the exact time and how
The day came for my play's final bow?
The span was compact
I ran for just one act
The encore - now as sacred cow

Tie the Knot Limerick

There was a girl, of I thought 
I loved her so much, a ring I bought
  Thinking of happy marriage 
  To propose I summed up all my courage 
Unfortunately, she wasn’t ready to tie the knot.

Anzac Day

It's Anzac Day today
Or lads were sent away
To fight a war
And what the hell for
Because they had to pay

Diasbled Musician

There was a disabled musician
Who stiffly played every audition.
Now recording with care,
Strumming from his armchair,
On youtube he’ll post each composition.

Courage - Limerick

"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of
 fear -- not absence of fear." - Mark Twain 

A courageous old knight found that there'd
still come times when anxiety flared
but he'd learned through the years
that to conquer one's fears,
one must not be afraid to be scared

Categories: humorous,



There once was a man who was fearless
Confronting a fear he could care less
His courage was there
Like Samson with hair
Except on his head he was hairless

As All Time's In Short Supply'

A man without a job
Had scarce to fill his gob
Scanning the press did See
Much work in jeopardy..'
So his pack; on back did lob.

He'd take train to short supply
Where time; was stacked up high.'
As a man of Limerick town
He was never feeling down
For t'was surely worth the try!

He climbed a hill

Then fell down and skinned his man peel

I once knew a poet named Upma,
People laughed as she wrote on karma,
Critics inked their dreary wit,
She egressed emotive shit,
On the go, now tries pen on dharma.

Limerick: Once a Fierce Samurai From Xi Ban Guo

Limerick: Once a fierce Samurai from Xi Ban Guo

Once a fierce Samurai from Xi Ban Guo
Displayed his sword-play in a tornado
But his sword slipped hands
And entered his ampersands*
So now he limps about incognito.

What's That Under Your Skirt

Here’s a thought that could be pursued
For the Scotts who would be tattooed
It is the new fad
To ink a kilt that's plaid
Around parts not normally viewed

Author's note: Thanks to Kelly in Old Town's (Va) restaurant for the inspirationYou are a fantastic server.

David and Goliath

Goliath, a boastful huge giant,

And David, a shepherd and pliant,

So he took a stone,

And crushed his head bone,

Then Israel roared like a lion.

A Fellow Named Bill

There was once a fellow named Bill                     
Who mastered an unusual skill                           
The skill was dope                                               
It involved rope                                                    
Which pulled him up the hill

A Hair-Raising Tale

A bald-headed man from Jamaica
Attempted to scale a sky-scraper
From his hospital bed
He was heard to have said
‘I was seeking a hair-raising caper!

Gay Clown

I am ‘eebygum’ the circus clown
who’s face when working a painted frown,
without suffers stage fright
courage returns each night,
when this queen wears his improvised crown

In a Difficult Society

Taking a step comes with a mind hard boiled
simple results come with body so soiled
despite life’s onanisms
some are full organisms
adapting to the heat to be well coiled.

The Worst Crime

When it comes to these little rhymes
Being vague is the worst of all crimes
Don't mess around
Stand your ground 
That's what I always say sometimes!

Jokes So Costly

Amidst strong foes, in real, he plays the hang
disturbing a hive to trouble the gang
one on a town to sweep
ride on sea with a jeep
placing the hand on a poisonous fang.

To Drain a Swamp

What does it take to drain a swamp?
A weakling or someone with strength and pomp?
How deep in the mire must this one go
To effect a change from the muck we know?
To drain a swamp, takes grit and a STOMP!

The Sunken Ship

There once stood a ship explored
Sunk at sea but was restored

But people were scared
And nobody dared

When they would say, "all aboard!"

Far Away From Home

There once lived a skeptic named Janet
Who feared leaving her home's granite

When her thoughts were wrong
What kept her so strong

Is after all she's on the same planet!

Timely Resurrection

Situations of life on goodwill may abrade
each stroke and fall, bringing out a lower grade
a cracker Jack
to welcome back
carving out an attraction from the same trade.
