Three More Bad Poems

Invasive jumping worms damage U.S. soil and threaten forests

The earthworm’s worth a second look

it’s more than something on a hook.

If they’re in your garden, for what it’s worth

they aerate and fertilize the earth.

Show one to your sister Beth

And, you will scare her half to deth.

Chow Chow | Dog Breed, Description, Temperament, & Facts | Britannica

A chow doesn’t chase sticks

or perform any other tricks.

If you tell it to stay

it will walk away.

Tell it to beg

and it will bite you on the leg.

Oscar Wilde: Impertinent Portrait – Speakeasy News

The British locked away

the author of The Portrait of Dorian Grey.

They decided that, in the main,

the author was indecent and insane.

Which seemed to verify

that he was a Wilde and crazy guy…

  1. I’m in a quandary as to which descend more precipitously into realms of utter, utter… um… words fail me! Would it be your rhymes or your puns? It could go either way! BOTH are so absolutely… absolutely… 🙈

      1. 😂 course it was. Did you get my email, it was throwing all kinds of warning messages when I sent it


  2. When I was about 8 or 9 years old, some local boys came to the door with this enormous, horrible, slimy night crawler worm. It looked to be a foot-and-a-half. long and as big around as my Dad’s thumb (time might have exaggerated its size in my memory). I KNEW their intention was to make me scream and run for my mother. And I KNEW this was the only start of much worse monsters to come to my door if I didn’t nip things in the bud. I remember swallowing hard, as I pasted a fake look of sheer delight on my face and said: ”WOW! That’s the neatest thing I ever saw!!!” as I reached out to hold it. You should have seen the look of disappointment on their faces. That said, your your worm poem will stay with me for awhile and that worm picture is REALLY creepy and gross, C. 😬😬😬

      1. Oh they give me the shivers but I AM working on that!!!! My selling point: if they’re in my house, they’re eating OTHER creepy-crawlies I’d rather not have in the house, either. I tend to leave the little ones alone and I catch and release the bigger ones (to be fair, we’re far enough north that our spiders are relatively small and all – I believe – non-poisonous).

      2. When I lived in El Paso, I found a black widow egg sac and put it into a jar in my room, with a screen over the top. The babies hatched and walked right through the screen. We moved a month later but I’ve always wondered how the new residents made out…
