Early Poetry

I just realized I had a little something special I could have shared with you all, so I’m sharing it.

I don’t usually do poetry these days, but when I was younger I idolized people like Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss for being able to rhyme and make me laugh (or at least smile) at the same time. I thought I could do it, so I wrote a lot of little poems. Not many of them were any good, but this little gem managed to shine despite my obvious lack of talent:

Good Life?

“We’ve lived a very good life,”
A husband said to his wife.
“Oh have we?” she said,
As he got into bed,
And she cut off his head with a knife.

It still makes me smile over a decade later.

That’s all for now. Just wanted to share that little bit of funny with you. Have a great day!
