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.

  1. I Didn't Go To Church Today

    I didn't go to church today,
    I trust the Lord to understand.
    The surf was swirling blue and white,
    The children swirling on the sand.

    and soil my pants

    I suppose it would be poetry in motion ... I like the idea!

  7. The Man In The Jar

    I once knew a man who lived in a jar.
    For a stranger sight you'd have to go far.
    I asked him once why he lived in a jar.
    He grimaced and said, how bizarre you are.

  8. Doggy Heaven

    • By Larry Huggins
    • Published: May 2014

    All doggies go to heaven (or so I've been told).
    They run and play along the streets of gold.
    Why is heaven such a doggie-delight?
    Why, because there's not a single cat in sight!

    It is nice. It describes humans as dogs, and obstacles, problems, etc. as cats (simply means heaven is peaceful).

    The Mystery Of A Belly Button

    Oh my beloved belly button.
    The squidgy ring in my midriff mutton.

    I've hunted near, I've hunted far
    I even looked inside my car.
    I've lost my glasses, I'm in need,
    To have them now so I can read.

    Woah! This is a funny poem and I can relate to it. I've misplaced my glasses too, more times than I care to remember and when I eventually find them, I'd be like "Would you believe this?"....

    This is funny. I like it. The best part is I can sing it to my sister because she won't know the difference between Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Car.
