and he didn't leave much to Ma and me,
just this old guitar and a bottle of booze.
Now I don't blame him because he run and hid,
Cute and Amusing Poems
Humorous poetry has been written for thousands of years. Many of us do not know that the nursery rhymes that we sang as kids were made up to convey information of a delicate political nature encoded in what sounds like a silly children's song.

However, we cannot take for granted the medium of humor as a way to convey information that may be politically dangerous.

5. The Pig
In England once there lived a big
And wonderfully clever pig.
To everybody it was plain
That Piggy had a massive brain.Featured Shared Story
I like this poem because it is contrary to what is normal, as the pig tries to eat the farmer instead of the other way around and it shows the power of humans over all other living things....

They prefer "expired" or "departed" instead.
Most of the euphemisms don't do any harm,
Like "biting the dust" or "buying the farm."Featured Shared Story
I found this poem very refreshing and true. Very good.

All curved glass screen and grain of wood.Featured Shared Story

Until I hear racket beside my bed.
