My new phone is "smart." I guess that I'm not.
Amazing what all this here smart phone has got.

Comical 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. Living in the western world, we are lucky enough to be able (in some cases) to freely speak our minds. However, we cannot take for granted the medium of humor as a way to convey information that may be politically dangerous.

Nothing Rhymes with Orange
Now see the beautiful sunset ore the ocean blue
Fiery colors due abound of poems there are a few
I wish that I could write one, about that perfect hue
But nothing rhymes with Orange...Featured Shared Story
This orange poem has tickled my fancy. Let me give it a go...

While strawberries and blueberries may make a soothing pair....
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....
