He one day asked me to marry
Though he was a real honey

So, I wed his cousin Harry

Porpoise


This little tubby cousin 
Of the dolphins has no beak.

He’s very shy and talks, 
Not with a click, but with a sneezy squeak!

The Okapi

I went to the Zoo and saw an Okapi,
Unlike the Hare, he did no hippity-hoppy.
But, like his cousin the Giraffe,
It truly had to make me laugh,
Its long tongue kept its ears from getting sloppy.

Call Me Cousin

I'm short and most costumes don't fit
Halloween found me in a snit
     But I have my answer now
     I just comb my long hair down
Add glasses and I'm Cousin It



Written for the Halloween Costume contest

Loving Hug (2005)

I had a dream of my cousin I love
Out of all my siblings she reaches well above
I’ve loved her since she was born
Distance has never torn
Last night I felt love in her hug
Warmth and captures in a loving snug

For Sheeto

BEES KNEES

Humble,bumble bee
One season's life,fly free

Working the summer scene
Unless crowned,as May Queen

Sometime cousin cuckoo,comes to stay
Her offspring eggs to lay

A nursemaid,then,Spring to Fall
'Til Winter's death knell,calls

Short Cousin poem by Danny Nunn| Details | |

The Yucca

                 Long slender blades, sort of a cactus, kissing cousin to a palm tree
                             Indians years ago, used to make soap from it
                         On our ranch in New Mexico, we called it "Soap Weed"

Short Cousin poem by Carolyn Devonshire| Details | |

Comb Over

Z Z Top and Cousin It took the right approach
     Dark sun glasses and beards detract from scraggly hair
Next time my motley hairdo meets with reproach
     Combing forward I’ll consider, sparing the Nair



*For Rick's "Bad Hair Day" contest

Short Cousin poem by Neldy Jolo| Details | |

NO BOUNDARY

Let history be the guidelines of our time to remain united.
Our border in the region is only if we do not go visit our neighborhood.
There is no barrier.
We are in Nusantara will remain united.
There is no race and religion that could disunite us.

Our New Year's Resolution

 For thanksgiving mama went to rehab and my brother went to jail
 For Christmas Santa brought white jackets and bail
 So we decided to make a resolution
 Granny swore Christ would be our solution
 Then it came summer and my cousin married the preacher
 This year for our resolution I think we need a new teacher

Perseverance

My cousin bought a horse and he fell off when he attempted to ride.
People told him to quit but he tried and tried.
He never gave up and he was never scared.
He learned how to ride that horse because he persevered.
We should all persevere when it comes to our goals and dreams.
We shouldn't give up no matter how hard it seems.

Short Cousin poem by randy johnson| Details | |

Oh my God, they killed Kenny!

(This is a fictional poem)

I loved watching South Park on weekday nights.
But my cousin caused me not to be able to watch it and we got in a fight.
He smashed the TV screen and I had to pick up the glass.
When I got done, I kicked his ass.
I liked watching Cartman, Kenny, Stan and Kyle.
My cousin will be in the hospital for awhile.

Short Cousin poem by randy johnson| Details | |

Say it, not spray it

(This is a fictional poem)

My cousin spits lots of saliva when he talks.
If you're near him, you'll slip on the floor when you walk.
If he's standing on dirt, he turns it to mud.
If he talks too long, he causes a flood.
People are getting tired of being covered with spit.
I'll kick his ___ if he doesn't learn to say it, not spray it.

Short Cousin poem by brittney lopez| Details | |

BLUE

Do you know what's haunting?
Losing someone and hearing their name, voice, or you hear something that reminds you of them
And you go blue. A dark blue, but a beautiful blue because that's the best kind of haunting
A beautiful haunting its something you can love so much but hate even more.
It's rather sweet thinking of someone so much
It's rather real.

Short Cousin poem by John Trainer| Details | |

Ramblings

Pugnacious mind of mine
Seeks an end to this winter fog
Your ramblings, on and on
I close the shutters, for spring is not in sight

Pig manure emasculates the air
Not a farm in sight
Your ramblings, on and on
I find solace in the bedroom closet

I hear the car door slam
The front door slam
Your ramblings, on and on
I chamber the round then nothing but stars

Short Cousin poem by Jerry Stevenson| Details | |

Complicated Family Tree

Rory and Cory are brothers.
They have the same father
but they have different mothers.
Their mothers are sisters.
That makes Rory and Cory cousins
as well as being brothers.
Rory’s mother is Cory’s aunt
and Cory’s mother is Rory’s aunt.
Cory is Rory’s mother’s nephew
and Rory is Cory’s mother’s nephew.
Rory and Cory have a very
complicated family tree.
