  1. 21. A Thing About Hair!

    I grew up listening to the Beatles. Besides music, they influenced a lot of teen culture, including long hair. There were times mine was past my shoulders! I wrote this story for children. It is silly, funny, cute and maybe a bit surrealistic. I hope they'll see that no matter how many turns their lives may take, there's always some way to adapt to them. It's for kids, but adults might get a kick out of it, too!

    I've looked all over, but I don't know where
    I got stuck with all this hair.
    Some hair's where there once was none!
    I must have more than anyone!

  2. 22. Spring Is Just Okay

    • By Phil Cornish
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014

    Everyone is excited about Spring...even me to some extent...but there is a darker side.

    Spring has sprung, the time has come, for the greening of the trees
    A time of change, renewal and growth for my allergies
    Like everything else in this great world, Spring has its pluses and minuses
    But its features are quite singular when it comes to my poor sinuses

  3. 23. Requiem For Old Shoes

    • By Robert Armitage
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014

    I would have described this poem as sentimental rather than funny. Though I suppose you could say mock-sentimental. It originally came from an exercise in a creative writing group, which was to describe a pair of old shoes, so the reader thought of death, without that word being mentioned.

    The original version perhaps did that best with the first line - "They walked through life together" and another line about corpses cold. However the death stipulation is unnecessary here.

    They looked good, at first, together,
    tight laced and polished smart,
    but wear and tear destroyed them:
    A tale to break your heart!

  4. 24. A 21st Century Visit From Santa

    • By Brooke Jones
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2010

    The classic "A Visit From Santa" MEETS Thomas Friedman's "The World Is Flat" in what could well become a new holiday classic. The birth of the world wide web has changed everything, forever, and for those not prepared, earning a living could be a challenge.

    T'was the night before Christmas, and all through the house
    Not a creature was sleeping -- not pet, child or spouse.
    The people were tossing and turning in beds
    With visions of bills dancing 'round in their heads.

  5. 25. The Ballad Of The Turkey

    • By G Yates
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A cute poem about a turkey

    As I walked along the road one day
    Kicking up stones along the way,
    I saw a bird of unusual size
    Who had a large beak and small, beady eyes....

  6. 26. The Ballad Of Daylight Savings Time

    Every year, it rolls around, to be greeted with groans, eye-rolling, and an intense desire to sleep in late. Yet we dutifully do it. Is there a bonus to Daylight savings Time? Hmmmmm.

    What's with this Daylight Savings Time?
    It steals our sleeping, snoozing time
    Roll out of bed and take a breath
    And feel like microwaved-reheated death

    Daylight saving can either be a blessing or a curse. Thanks for the laugh. Australia is currently enjoying summer daylight saving time. Loved the verse.

  7. 27. Growing Old

    I began writing poetry in middle age. For about 5 years I lived aboard a yacht in remote areas of Australia, mostly in the Torres Strait. We had intermittent TV and radio signal depending on the anchorage and I began writing poems for family and friends for special occasions. The majority of my poems have a whimsical quality and this poem is no exception. It takes a humorous look at how we deal with the ravages of aging and particularly strikes a chord with women of middle age and older.

    They said I was an "old fart"
    But I hardly think that's true
    My boobs were done in '75
    But my teeth and knees are new.

  8. 28. Mary Had A Little Lamb

    I often read nursery rhymes to my grandchildren, but they showed little emotion when I did. Therefore, I decided to write the rhymes in a more humorous way. They appear to be enjoying my little rhymes very much now. "Awesome, Grandad. You're funny."

    I've written a number of these comic/satirical rhymes. I hope you like this one. If so, I'll send more later.

    Mary had a little lamb
    And a baked potato.
    Mary had a salad too,
    Of lettuce and tomato.

  9. 29. Our TV Set Was Black And White

    I was reminiscing about the early days of television before the advent of the remote control, recorders, twin tuners, streaming, etc. We now take for granted the technology that allows us so much choice (some would say too much choice) as to what we watch and when and how we watch it. No more abandoning your coffee making and sprinting back to the living room to shouts of, "It's on!!"

    Our TV set was black and white
    And on its spindly legs it stood;
    More deep than wide with dials that clicked,
    All curved glass screen and grain of wood.

  11. 31. Archemedes Was All Wet

    • By Robert Z
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014

    After spending over 40 years as an academic and industrial research chemist, I have become intrigued with the large number of important scientific discoveries that have been advanced through serendipity and humor.

    Most of the chemists and physicists that I have had the pleasure to work with could easily start a second career as stand-up comedians. The public at large, especially young people, need to know that working as a scientist, although very challenging, is never dull or boring!

    King Hero of old Syracuse had doubts that made him frown.
    "Perhaps my goldsmith did not use pure gold to make the crown."
    Since proof of mischief must be strong to put a thief in collar,
    The king who feared his judgment wrong called on his science scholar.

  12. 32. Orange

    Have you ever struggled to find a word that rhymes

    Now see the beautiful sunset ore the ocean blue
    Fiery colors do abound, of poems there are a few
    I wish that I could write one, about that perfect hue
    But nothing rhymes with orange

  13. 33. Writing Block

    • By Rebecca
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2009

    Hi everyone! I'm just your average teen who enjoys listening to music, friends, and TV, but I also love writing! I wrote this poem for a writing club I'm in and it turned out to be pretty neat! I hope you enjoy!

    I can not write a poem; my brain feels fried.
    It can do no more.
    It is as though all my creativity has been trapped, isolated in a room without a door.

  14. 34. The Car

    • By Ron Miler
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014

    Ever have car trouble and the explanation of the problems can be very confusing especially for us not car repair people? Sometimes the explanation could just as well be in Greek.

    I was heading south to the city's biggest shopping center
    To get a steak and other things that I could eat for dinner.
    Then I noticed, luckily, I was nearly out of gas.
    So, I headed for the Stall-Mart store out near the overpass.

    This is a humorous poem about what sheltering in place has done to me.

    And following many a clue,
    I've finally discovered the source
    Of the new pandemic flu.

  16. 36. Ripped Pants, Broken Heart

    I ripped my pants at the knee today. In my distress, I mourned them for nearly thirteen minutes. This poem will be read as a eulogy at the funeral, where all my pants' friends-including that weird kilt they met once, will attend. Please be mindful of this somber affair, as I need time to recover from the loss.

    I lived my life, I tried my best to follow all my dreams.
    My great endeavors were forever bursting at the seams.
    And though I tried to love what's mine, I failed and I confess
    My bony knees made pants like these suffer much distress

  19. 39. Christmas Golf

    My son needed a poem for school he could act out as he read. That was kind of hard to find. So I wrote this for him. It was my first one, have wrote many more since. Hope you enjoy this one.

    Back in October a Christmas wish I made.
    A brand new set of golf clubs before next year I played.
    Then on Christmas morn, with my eyes I spied
    An oblong box under the tree, with ribbon wrapped and tied.
