Holes I've Known ....... [Holes, of course! ; HUMOR/humour; MEDIUM length]

I've known button holes and donut holes, but NO HOLES with buried treasure.
I've heard of deep space "black holes" which man may never measure.
There are some holes in human bodies, which I'm too polite to mention.
Holes are sometimes "eaten" in one's stomach, IF that "ONE" has too much tension.

Holes in mountains may be called craters, or maybe caves, or tunnels.
There are holes in some kitchen tools, including slotted spoons and funnels.
Swiss cheese has holes in it, and there can be treacherous potholes in a street.
I prefer the holes in cheese to those in streets, ‘cause cheese, not streets, I eat.

Keyholes are becoming less common …..as push buttons are (keyholes) replacing.
Through big holes in my wife's toast, the melting butter does go racing.
Woodpeckers peck holes in trees for their nests, where they raise their young.
After the dentist drills my decaying teeth, I can feel the holes with my tongue.

Someone who is deemed to be not-smart, may be said to have in his head a hole.
In my chest I think I have an empty space (or hole) , where others have a soul.
You'll want a hole to drain away the water, after washing the supper dishes.
BUT you won't want a hole in your boat's bottom, unless you wish to sleep.........with the fishes.

I could go on and on and on, to fill the holes in my intensely-boring day,
but a hole has opened in the clouds, ….and it's time for Bri to go out and play.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
