Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
Boat I bought had great reviews,
Couldn’t wait to take a cruise,
Launched it and – kerplunk! –
Down it went and sunk,
So beware of fake canoes.
From the archive
A perfectionist poet was picky
And found writing light verse rather tricky,
So he sought inspiration
From an apt distillation
In a perfectly punny lime rickey.
“What’s this fly doing in my soup?”
I demand with my spoon in mid-scoop.
The response I receive:
“Backstroke, I believe.”
To what depths will the wry waiter stoop!
Riddles and puns are my play:
Who’s on first, I sensibly say,
And I know why a duck,
But I fear that I’m stuck
When the question is, Y2K.
Last week’s limerick
“Your excuse when assignments are lacking
Always seems like a cover for slacking,
But this new one is great,
Why your homework is late:
Your computer sustained Russian hacking?”
