Pigeons Pooping on People in the Park and Other Funny Poems and Limericks
Two Pigeon LImericks

Limerick The Second:

I came across a lonely footprint.
I picked it up and examined
I carefully placed it back where
I had previously found it.
I discovered the poor thing was dead.

As I sit and think, I often wonder.
I usually think why I wonder
What I’m thinking when I’m
Maybe I should stop

I was going to ask Some Body
what’s the point in asking
No One is there?

I like to "bend" our language to discover what we can really say with what seems like nonsense. Here are more examples of that.
But this is about all I have to say in this hub. My only purpose is to hopefully make you laugh. Though a cliché it may be, laughter is the best medicine to counter so many of life's ills. Thanks for reading!
