Poems and poetry have been there, all around mankind sine the mankind has evolved. They have always been there in different form and languages. According to different researchers and historians the oldest poetry belongs from Chinese folk music that was called shijing. After that this trend came to India in form of sinsikrat Vedas. but, still it is not confirmed that who was the first poet and whether it is true or not that this concept of poetry started from Chinese culture. Today, also poetry is used to express feelings and share thoughts. Our elders and poets are found complaining that youngsters of today have destroyed poetry and they do not have respect for poetry. Maybe this is because of today’s trend that the youngsters share funny poetry through messages and emails. This sort of messages and emails should not be regarded as poetry because they are no more that the similarity of lines and words. But, yes it is the fact that they bring smiles on the faces.
1. I'm growing a truck in the garden.
It's true, though it may sound bizarre.
I'm growing a bus and an airplane,
a rocket, a boat, and a car.
My mother said, "Let's plant a garden,"
for gardens are one of her joys,
but I didn't have any plant seeds
so that's why I planted my toys.
2. They torture nose and taste buds
with both hamburger and spuds.
There are meatballs in gravy that’s
like iridescent mud.
Mashed potatoes hit both tray and stomach
with a sick’ning thud.
I bring my lunch to school!
3. ‘If at first you don’t succeed’,
Said Robert the Bruce the King.
If at first you don’t succeed,
Then you shouldn’t try skydiving.
4. A tin can
Baked beans or sardines
A defective detective.
5. If you understand, say “understand”.
If you don’t understand, say “don’t understand”.
But if you understand and say “don’t understand”.
How do I understand that you understand? Understand!
6. Everyone grumbled. The sky was grey.
We had nothing to do and nothing to say.
We were nearing the end of a dismal day,
And then there seemed to be nothing beyond,
Daddy fell into the pond!
7. A gourmet dining at Crewe
Found a rather large mouse in his stew.
Said the waiter, “Don’t shout
And wave it about,
Or the rest will want one, too.”
8. There was a young lady named Rose
Who had a large wart on her nose.
When she had it removed
Her appearance improved,
But her glasses slipped down to her toes.
9. An Intelligent Wife Is the One
Who Makes Sure She Spends
So Much That
Can't Afford Another Woman…
10. Did you know your snoring could awaken the dead?
Or perhaps it could be used to saw logs instead
Unfortunately, a good night’s sleep is no longer mine.
To a lifetime of constant yawning, I have been resigned.
11. When it gets tough to hang on.
You often feel like letting go.
You don’t give a damn about the future,
And all the more tortures it holds.
But if you think about it a little,
Life also makes the pain worth living it.
So instead of cursing at life,
I hope you can try forgiving it…
