Poetry Prayer #2

UntitledThis week Cindy posted her Love Thursday about Chris. Today is the first anniversary of his death. I didn't comment on the Love Thursday post because I'd never met Chris. Suebob did, though, and apparently she really hit the nail on the head. I wanted to do...something. I thought maybe this Sunday poetry thing might be good. I focused on limericks for a while but you'd be surprised at the dearth of good limericks available by googling "funny limerick." Googling "funny poems" brings you a lot of "family friendly" selections which didn't seem like Chris at all. Finally I found a passable limerick and another poem I think I've posted before but that I still think is funny in a more subtle way. Hope you enjoy them.

There Once Was A Man From Nantucket
by Anonymous

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all of his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nan took it.

This is Just To Say
by William Carlos Williams

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
