Humor & Poetry


Humor l.jpg

Humor

  • Humor in poetry can arise from a number of sources:

    • Surprise

    • 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

    Can’t be blamed for holding a grudge

    I know one hound that laughed all winter long

    At a porcupine that sat on a piece of wood

    Limericks

    Is getting to be quite a bore.


    Another limerick l.jpg

    Another Limerick

    There once was a very small mouse

    The ocean’s spray

    Washed it away,

    All that was left was her blouse!
