A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

If you should hear

A little Shakespeare

Perched on your shoulder

And close to your ear

Tweeting Iambic

Pentameter

And you turn to see

A bird in a ruff

Wearing a doublet

Of feathers and fluff

Writing about dreams

And other such stuff

A play for a flock

Of flighty bards

To be performed

In your back yard

A play full of jesters

Kings, queens, and guards

Then don’t try to catch him

For the play’s the thing

Allow him to be

And not not to be

Because a caged bard won’t sing.

Limericks

A farmer who crashed his old tractor

Found he needed a good chiropractor

His back came to some harm

While down on the farm

And faulty brakes were a very big factor

Featured Poem

Big T and the Piggies

Are a gang as tough as nails

Hairy and pink

They created a stink

And got themselves thrown in jail

 

Inside a one foot prison cell

Inside a cotton cage

Bound in leather

And tied with a knot

They were sentenced to sweat for an age

 

But now they’re free

They’re going to market

To fight a rival gang

On the mean streets

A pair of mean feet

Where Big T and the Piggies hang.
