Great Poetry Reading Day, etc.

April 28, 2009

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.


Poultry Day, etc.

March 19, 2009

Eat some great poultry;
Be it chicken, turkey, eggs,
Or some other bird.

 

It’s Poultry Day and Poetry Month.
