This week I participated in my first poetry reading. There was a variety of very entertaining poetry that had us in stitches. Here are a few poetry jokes I might try out at the next open mic night. A couple are even funny!
Q: Why didn’t the angry farmer divorce his wife when she traded their prize milking cow for a book of poetry? A: Because he vowed to love her for butter or verse.
Q: How does a poet sneeze? A: Haiku!!!
Q: Why are poets always so poor? A: Because rhyme doesn’t pay.
Q: Where do poems come from? A: Poe-trees.
Q: Why did the traffic cop give the poet a ticket? A: For driving without a poetic license.
If you have the opportunity, enjoy a poetry reading at your local tea or coffee house. You might even laugh out loud.
