little brown bird

april is national poetry month

Although limericks are so seldom good if they are clean, I have 2 favorites to share:

Said Francesca, "My lack of volition
Is leading me straight to perdition;
But I haven't the strength
To go to the length
Of making an act of contrition."
(Edward Gorey)


Of much more dubious quality, I have always loved this one

There once was a pretty young miss
who went down to the river to read
but a man in a punt
stuck his oar in her eye
and now she has to wear glasses
