      • Exaggeration

      • Bringing together of unrelated things

  • Most funny poems have two things in common:

    • Rhythm

    • Rhyme


  • Rhythm rhyme l.jpg

    Using more spirited language makes humorous situations even more humorous

    “The Porcupine”

    By Ogden Nash

    Any hound a porcupine nudges

    Can’t be blamed for harboring grudges.

    I know one hound that laughed all winter

    At a porcupine that sat on a splinter.

    Rhythm & Rhyme


    If you take away the rhythm and rhyme the humor vanishes l.jpg

    If you take away the rhythm and rhyme, the humor vanishes.

    Any hound that touches a porcupine

    I know one hound that laughed all winter long

    At a porcupine that sat on a piece of wood

    Limericks

    There once was a man with no hair.

    He gave everyone quite a scare.

    He got some Rogaine,

    Grew out a mane,

    And now he resembles a bear!


    Limerick about a bee l.jpg

    Limerick About a Bee

    I wish that my room had a floor,

    I don’t care so much for a door.

    But this walking around

    Without touching the ground

    Is getting to be quite a bore.


    Another limerick l.jpg

    Another Limerick

    There once was a very small mouse

    Who lived in a very small house,

    The ocean’s spray

    Washed it away,

    All that was left was her blouse!
