Monday morning writing joke: “Fool errand”

There once was a man so wise /

he read a book on disguise. /

And to this very day /

when he wants to slip away /

glasses and a mustache he applies. /

Monday morning writing joke: “Acknowledgements”

There once was writer of acknowledgements /

Who was in a pickle over compliments. /

To make them clear and sincere /

And not sound in arrears /

Or as if she were paying emoluments.

Monday morning writing joke: “F-bomb”

IMG_6463_F-Bomb 100dpi_6x6_4c

There once was a purveyor of F-bombs /
Who dropped them like words of a psalm. /
One day on a streak /
He went well passed his peak /
Now his voice squeaks with lavender charm.

Monday morning writing joke: “A Man of Subtle fun”

There once was man of subtle fun /
Who tried to make puns on the run /
But his display of verbal wit /
Didn’t go over for shit /
And left people mindless minus one.

Monday haiku: “Soggy bottom”

Some days you get the /

dry sleeping bag; other days /

Monday morning writing joke: “Haulage of knowledge”

There once was a writer off for college /

All in the pursuit of higher knowledge. /

The four years they say /

Only got in the way /

And caused a great deal of haulage.
