***************

Not so long ago, during an era when family gatherings were not frowned upon, it so happened a happy celebration was in progress.

The story begins with a playful grandma wanting to explore her young grandson’s mind with conversation during a joyful party while enjoying sitting together near the table settings with fun things to munch on, lots of yummy fruits, and tasty treats.


Suddenly the nearby phone rings … r i n g -r i n g!


Grandma’s foolery outshined her as she grabbed the banana off the table, put it up to her ear, and said, “hello!”


“Hello, who is this speaking please?”


The confused grandson looked up at her with the most serious look on his face, whispered, “grandma, that is A banana!”

Poets here on WordPress who will be the winner? Don’t forget it has to be funny!

Thought I would practice writing a Limerick so here below is my take on a practice Limerick; Practice makes perfect. Your turn!

********************************

Every hour this male thrived on power
Although he lacked the brainpower
Some called him sleepy
That seemed quite creepy
Believed he wore a mask taking a shower

Just Because, opinion

What If !!!

The word today from the famous Fandango is PERFUNCTORY!

Fight with delight, fight the fight, these statues the “peaceful” unthinking, perfunctory protestors are tearing down, have had enough.  BEWARE!

You will have to agree, I feel, these images below are certainly perfunctory, glib, or at least artful, depending on how you look at things.

Who is Truly Culpable?

For Fandango my attempt at a limerick

 

Once upon a time lived only Adam plus Eve
They lived happily neverending they perceived.
Meandering, a long, slimy slithering snake
I feel someone is about to make a mistake!
From that day on, the world seeks to find a reprieve.

Looking everywhere trying odds and ends
We all do hope someday to make amends.
While time marches; listen hear the tock-tick
Solution is within; this limerick!
Try this! What do you do on your weekend?

Ah! Another Challenge, Word of the Day Challenge

A Jibberjabber post about doubt

I DOUBT

I doubt that I could fly, although in my dreams I can.
I doubt I will live to be 100 — at least I hope I don’t!
I doubt I will ever win a poetry contest, but I love writing them!

Thinking about what I know for sure, hmmm!
Time continues to march on with or without me,
and the sun will rise each day … or will it?scratch
