Here’s my feeble attempt at poetic humor – a variation of the above ‘roses’ theme:
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I’m not very good at poetry
But at least I try.
- Why didn’t the angry farmer divorce his wife when she traded
their prize milking cow for a book of poetry?
Because he vowed to love her for butter or verse
- What did the poet say to Luke Skywalker?
Metaphors be with you.
- Why are poets always so poor?
Because rhyme doesn’t pay.
- What do you get when you combine Robert Frost and James Bond?
The Road Not Shaken but Stirred.

A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city and attached the following message to his windshield: “I’ve circled this block 10 times. I have an appointment to keep. Forgive our trespasses.”
When he returned to his car he found this reply attached to his own note, along with a ticket: “I’ve circled this block for 10 years. If I don’t give you a ticket, I lose my job. Lead us not into temptation.”
The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a Berkeley graduate and a redneck from Texas. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to study the word and come up with a poem that contained the word. The word they were given was “Timbuktu.”
First to recite his poem was the Berkeley graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:
Slowly across the desert sand
Trekked a lonely caravan;
Men on camels, two by two
The crowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they thought. The redneck calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:
Me and Tim a huntin’ went.
Met three whores in a pop up tent.
They was three, and we was two,
So I bucked one, and Timbuktu.
