A Poem by emipoemi

I’m a huggermugger.

I hug a mug and I mug for hugs,

For a hug is a mug of hot cocoa,

Good for anyone




So it’s interey how

People can’t wrap their heads

Around a hug

(Let alone their arms!)

They come and go,

They to and fro,

They do-si-do on a dally,

Yet ev’ry day

Around the clock

The streets resound with



Tip a canoe to Kansas!

Though nobody knows

Or nobody cares

If any can even canoe

In Kansas.

They need a hug.

We need a hug.

Ev’rybody needs a hug!

If happy-go-lucky,

If down in the dumps,

If all frizzed up in a hairy

Over bristles and baubles.

Give a hug, take a hug,

Have a hug sameach,

And rock-a-bye-bye the confusion

Around true huggermuggery.

For the world needs huggermuggers

Not motherfe - fi - fo - fum -

Monster trucks!

No harm ever came of open arms,

And none should ever come

Of closed.

The only difference between

A hug and a thug

Is a T!

Which is as warm

In a mug as hot cocoa,

Which is stirred into seasons

On the compass of compassion,

Which is a smile with a heartbeat

And a while of splendid worth,

Which is what enriches life -

A hug enriches life!

I’m a huggermugger,

 And I’m giving a hug to you.

The only difference between
A hug and a thug
is a T

That is just wonderful.

Like my mugs of cocoa too. There is everything to like with this write. Much to smile at.

This is a fun write, and certainly fun to read! But on a serious note, hugs are good to give sometimes. I went to my cousin's funeral a few weeks ago, and I hugged some people there I had not seen in years. It felt good.

Hugs are underrated, but they provide the most comfort and happiness to one's life, even if they don't know they need one!
