This week's theme, as suggested by Diane of On the Alberta/Montana Border, is HUMOUR. Or if you're American, the theme is HUMOR.
A little humour/humor there.
Diane was responsible for starting Poetry Monday to begin with; then Delores of Mumblings joined in, and so did I. You can, too! If you post your poem on your blog, leave us a link to it in the comments. Or you can leave a poem right in the comments at Diane's, Delores' or my blog.
Humour as a theme, eh? Piece of cake, I thought.
As my mother is prone to say, "She had another think coming ..."
If you're not familiar with that phrase, here is the definition from the online Cambridge Dictionary:
have another think comingto need to consider something again, because you are wrong
Example: If you think I'm going to pay for everything, you've got another think coming.In other words, this was not a piece of cake after all. It was not even a piece of bread. It was not a piece of anything, except maybe a piece of hand-wringing and weeping and gnashing of teeth.
I thought about it all week. I Googled "funny poems." I racked my brain.
Finally, with my posting deadline past (horrors!), I pinned my brain to the mat, put it in a chokehold, and forced it to write this:
Oh, The Irony Of Not Being Able To Write A Funny Poem About Humour/Humor
A little shot of humo(u)r
Is a lovely useful thing
It can make a bad day better
It can make a good day sing
Less fattening than chocolate
Less costly than a shrink
A little bit of funny
Can cure most things, I think
A cartoon or a silly rhyme
A limerick or a pun
A meme or gif or clever quote
So many kinds of fun
This poem doesn't have those.
Bothered? No, not me
Because my poem's filled with
My brain is exhausted from that wrestling match. It's okay, brain. You can go have some warm milk and some light reading now.
How my brain feels today.
Maybe all that worrying had something to do with my brain not cooperating in the humour/humor department.
That, and procrastinating until I hit full-blown panic mode. That, too.
I hope you all have plenty of humour/humor in your lives this week, even if you have to wrestle your brain to the ground to create it!
