(limerick) That Poemhunter Site - Poem by WES Vogler

I have nothing to do here at all,
Yet I don't have the time for the mall.
That 'Poemhunter' site
Keeps me up through the night,
While fanciful thoughts e'er enthrall.

I think that I have to compose
Ever onwardly, god only knows
Just where I am going,
But thoughts ever-flowing...
Put the GRINDstone right next to my nose.

The limerick's my form of the art.
It gives me the chance to impart
The gist of a joke
To ev'ry poor bloke.
Now his sweetie will think he is smart.

I wrote that last line sev'ral times
I tried it with seventeen rhymes
But none seemed to work
Then he turned, with a jerk...... no no.. that's from 'The Night Before Christmas'
Do you hear all those wonderful chimes?

(good luck rating THIS ONE)

Topic(s) of this poem: christmas, funny, people

Form: Limerick

    Ah, you caught me trolling through poems at 3 in the morning looking for something to believe in and trust in myself as poet before getting all snuggled in my warm winters bed until the grinch catches me and pulls the plug. Thanks! ! ! (Report) Reply

    oh! good. i already have it in Dec. section B. ;) bri (Report) Reply

    in line five of this stanza, do “his” and “he” refer to the author/speaker OR to ”ev’ry poor bloke”, which COULD include the author? ?

    the “The limerick's my form of the art.
    It gives me the chance to impart
    The gist of a joke
    To ev'ry poor bloke.
    Now his sweetie will think he is smart.”

    has anyone else ever written a ‘four stanza combo limerick’? ? it could be “a first”! :)

    ok, I see the hinting for an x-mas gift for Wes here. hmmm? a new keyboard? a case of Labatt blue?
    bri :) ok. rating time, which I rarely do except for OLD guys!
    I HEARD 8 (eight) chimes. ok, an 8.

    and, more importantly, (?) , this shall be in Section B of my/our DECEMBER ‘a showcase for PH poets”, on my site on PH. thanks.

    It seems that the poet named Wes
    has written a godawful mess
    So here it sits, stinking
    Just what was he thinking?
    The answer is anyone's guess.
    lol
    :)
    Your limericks are funny. Good job.
