Jim Yerman Poems
Comments about Jim Yerman
There once was a writer named Lear
With the first name of Edward...I fear
He was English...I say
He wrote Limericks every day
And we celebrate his birthday each year.
The Limericks he wrote or he sent
Had an obscene or humorous intent
Please keep them clean
But if you must be obscene
Best to secure your parent’s consent.
If you need help keeping one chaste
Here’s an example...not profanity laced
With no obscenity
It has a rating of ‘G’
So you can bet that it’s done in good taste:
I have a friend, Barb, with whom I once taught
In all ...
When I look into the mirror I’m appalled at what I see
I do not recognize that person who is looking back at me.
I know I’m better looking, you can be assured of that.
I wonder, then, who this is, who I am looking at?
I know I look much younger and I certainly have more hair
So I can’t possibly be that person looking at me over there.
