So that she can learn from you
And see what you do.

Kiss your mate today;
That is, if you have a mate;
Show them that you care.

Great Poetry Reading Day, etc.

Read great poetry,
Be it Shakespeare or others;
Ain’t gonna be here.


It’s Great Poetry Reading Day, Kiss Your Mate Day, and Poetry Month.  Thinking about other not-so-great poetry brings to mind the limerick openings:  ‘there was an old man from Nantucket …’ and ‘there once was a man from Venus / his body was shaped like …’.  The fun thing about these is coming up with endings that aren’t the obvious ones.
