Sum Stuff

Sum Stuff

A Poem by Dave Brown



The ghoul on the stool was no fool

Having late attended fright school       

Learned how to slice em

Learned how to dice em

But couldn’t contain his gross drool


When Jane saw the Werewolf just right ahead

She inquired had it been recently fed

Her cautious question

Brought the confession

It hadn’t, but gladly ate her instead


A dieting big momma from somewhere

Mistakenly used acid on her hair

When her skull began frying

She just couldn’t stop dying

But thankfully shrank her large derriere


The witch on the broom cast a spell

Sending her drunk husband to hell

Tho’ hot down there

He would declare

There was a huge supply of zinfandel


Two poets began dueling limericks

One from the city, the other the sticks

As both kept on tryin

The words kept a-flyin

With em' both usin their full bag of tricks

RU suggesting something about half a brain???
I never took you for the kind of poet who would immortalize your family in lyrical fashion, this way! No wonder everyone in the family just buggers you off, you ole curmudgeon, you! I'm only berating you becuz I'm jealous as hell that you slammed my limerick offering with even more outlandish imagination!!! Don't worry. I've got a story almost ready to post (((HUGS)))
