Short Funny Poems

Short and Cute Poems

The short poem is more challenging to write than a longer poem. It seeks to make every word count and mean exactly what is intended. A short poem has the added benefit of getting the message of poem through to the reader in a succinct way. There are many traditional styles of humorous short poems. The challenge is in getting your words into the proper number of syllables in each stanza. These poems have a technical element to them that contrast with the free flowing poems that are more common today.

    I once knew a man who lived in a jar.
    For a stranger sight you'd have to go far.

    He grimaced and said, how bizarre you are.
