Poetry for Strangers: Jovial

get thee to a punnery

sing to me o muse the cheese of achilles
the silliad is loaded with jovialities
the codyssey starts with call me fishmael
after that it goes all to hell
it was the best of limes it was the worse of limes
begins a tale of two margaritties
i think that i shall never see a poem lovely as a manatee
wrote a poet with a thing for creatures of the sea
said squidhartha monkish to the last
i can think. i can wait. i can squirt ink real fast
the potato’s the thing wherein i’ll mash the buttery cream
said yamlet on his famous scalloped stuffing
levity is the goal of a twit a most palpable twit
