Petty Annoyances: Three Silly Poems

Updated on November 16, 2012

Liz considers herself an amateur comedienne. She belonged to a comedy improv troupe, has written assorted spoofs, and stage managed plays.

I.Occasional Furniture

Coffee tables serve but three purposes:

          to demonstrate

                               the immortal nature

                                                               of dust;

          to display the books

                               you never intend

                                                               to read;


to assure you that

                               you do, in fact,

                                                                have shins.

II. !!

 Of all the experiences

                     to be had in life,

There are bound to be those

                     that cause you strife.

The one among these

                     that I find most chilling

Is the occasion of your fork

                     meeting up with

                                            a filling.

III. Yuck!

 Why do I love

                  filled donuts so much?

                                  I don't..

                      (I just like the filling.)


It might be rather messy,

                                          you see

                       to order a handful

                                                 of jelly.

    Glad you enjoyed the silliness. Many of my poems are simply observations on life--particularly its petty annoyances. ;-)

    I've always suspected that dust was immortal, and now you've confirmed it! Thanks for sharing the funny poems.
