How cold is it outside?

Cold enough to prove I love my dog

Cold enough to prove she doesn’t reciprocate

“Tasty” is something that tastes good.

“Smelly” is something that smells bad.

This sort of senseless bias makes me touchy.

1. “Oooh, a book of poetry!”

2.  Find one of its shortest poems.

3.  Judge.

Pop on Hop

The pudgy pickle chopper
pulled the chain of his bath stopper
and let the water whimper down the drain.

In popped an old grasshopper,
run away from a field cropper,
and croaked a crick that crook’d the chopper’s brain.

With the pudgy chopper piqued–
in the full of his physique–
the ‘hopper hoped he’d hamper his attack…

…but the chopper popped a wallop,
so the ‘hopper was a dollop
on the spot the chopper thought he might lean back.

Damn it.

I’d write a haiku, but that isn’t possible:  my ‘Enter’ key broke!

A Reason for Fingers

Without our fingers,
it would be harder to count
haiku syllables.

Binary Haiku


(I’m especially proud of the rhyme scheme.)

I don’t understand
why people read poetry
if it doesn’t rhyme.

‘The Aristocrats’ as a Haiku

Family acts vile.
Agent asks what their act’s called.
“The Aristocrats!”
