3 Poems of Humor

A Poem by Gedalya

^ From Autumn 2013.

I watch as my father’s weary eyes begin to bleed.
Tremors set upon his hands; his fingers curl within;
His mouth opens, “That foul fiend of hell has planted a seed!”
“Where father. . ?” I ask, for I know he speaks of the beast.
He covers his eyes and shakes; his mouth twists to a grin.
In agony, “It shall arise from the waters of the East!”
“Tell me more!” I scream, excited and yet terrified.
His olive skin tightens now; his breath wreaks of aged gin.
Laughing mad, “Imbecile! Can you not see that I have lied?”
“No father!” ashamed, for this is not the only time.
Slapping his knees, revealing the ketchup bottle;
“Watch the news!“, We’ve just struck new oil! Aint that a lime?!”
I will never blink:
- Paralyzer, Paralyzer! 
 Why do you stare?
 Can you not see. . . that I can no longer bare,
 That most petrifying. . . and disturbing glare?!”
- Paralyzer, Paralyzer! 
 if you don’t mind. . .
 Can you not see. . . that an answer, I must find?
 “You poor fool! I cannot see. . . For I am blind!”
In Cajun Country:
A Latino man stands alone, beside of a dark bayou
And clutched in his hands:
Purest white powder sealed in black balloon. 
A French man comes and says: 
“Tengo Hambre, senor. . .”
The Latino says no ‘¡hola!‘ and he bids no ‘adieu‘.
He hands him the bag:
“Here’s a remedy . . . for needle and spoon.”
The French man nods and says: 
“Gracias, Au revoir. . .”

Great, humorous poems. The third one I had to read twice, but eventually I was able to get many laughs out of these. Wonderful work! You should write limericks.
