When two hearts hid for so long...

My grandma

My grandma

I see her
Seating on her bed
Pillows propped with cotton
Circling her like witches
Around a cauldron pot
Her skin glowing
From her light within.

Wishing he were much bolder, he sighed,

To roll that in the hay."
But looked up to see 'she' was a guy.

Warm colors of fall

contrast in their irony

as cooler days come.

Let autumns bright golden hues

linger on landscapes longer.

The lilly-WHITE gang

Chomping hard with false teeth
They never really bite
Standing on halos
Lashing out with smite
A big gang, meat, hangs
Rotting out of sight
Pick your own bones
Ditto drones

Short Irony poem by Anna Makoujy| Details |

Dancing to the Tune of the Donkey

The once was a lass with no class.

She was the world's biggest horse's ass.

Yet the irony remains,

that the girl with all the brains, 

listened to the lass with no class.

Writer's Block: Rethought

I can't think

Can't write

The irony of this poem 

Is so great dispite

This black block

Weighing heavily on my mind.

So small yet so there

It's hard to define.



Short Irony poem by Victoria Anderson-Throop| Details |

Husbands are in heaven whose wives scold not

" Husbands are in heaven whose wives scold not"

His Heavenly garden
Seemed a loss without someone to share--
The birdsong missing was, he thought, the
Lack of nagging in his ear.

Short Irony poem by Tobi Osunkoya| Details |

The Game

I played the game 
By the rules for too long 
Called them out
Said they were fools 
When they did wrong 

But whoever wins playing fair
How can you win 
If you dont take the Dare ?

your only half as old as you are smart

by counting my blessings every day my hindsight doubles

all work and no play makes jack a dull boy

you wouldn't believe the irony....seriously

The Boss - Maybe Tomorrow

With the boss pulling and the workers pushing, with the Square Wheels on the wagon and the round wheels in it:

The boss views the path.

Roll forward faster better.

Maybe tomorrow...

Short Irony poem by David Sollis| Details |

Exam Revision

A constant murmur,
with bickering voices
and occasional shriek of glee.
All when I'm trying to revise,
down in the library.

[written in 1988 - do they still have libraries in universities?]

Short Irony poem by stanley copley| Details |


Ain't life funny

With it's turns and twists

The things life deals you

And the things you miss.

Ain't life funny

With it's irony and grit

You learn to laugh about it

Or just give up and quit!

Short Irony poem by Dee Baxly| Details |

Heavenly Nevermore

The sun has learned
to nevermore interfere 

with the moon 
and its stars

To give it a whole world
because the sun

doesn't need to stand in the way,
when it has free reign 
of the entire universe.

Short Irony poem by Scott Simmerman| Details |

If bosses would listen

With the wagon rolling forward on Square Wheels and a cargo of round rubber tires, the wagon pushers need change.

Are Bosses unaware?

Square Wheels are always thumping.

Listen. Small improvements here.

Short Irony poem by Douglas Dicketts| Details |

The Fool

Hate the fool who shot my bro

I hate the fool who shot me

Got a gun to let em know

Ill shoot their but Ill shoot their bro

And in the end I guess I know

Ill be the fool that I hate so

So what Shoot me!

Short Irony poem by Ediruma Edward Eric| Details |

The independent woman

The independent woman

Prejudiced in Eden

Scorned in time

Lame and down the pit

But still journeys West

With a vindictive heart

Swims in vileness

Reckons laughter in the pogrom

And clings to the spell of courage

Short Irony poem by Just That Archaic Poet| Details |


Unnerving news, it lit the fuse,
And at "point-blank" range, I was shot
But then we found ourselves amused-
That you were dead and I was not!

*This is a silly piece, just written at the time, I suppose, for the sake of irony

Short Irony poem by Arden Gopela| Details |


                                                    With your mock-up words
                                    Neither you can be trusted;
                                                    "WALK YOUR TALK", ignored!

Short Irony poem by Eric Thomas| Details |

The Signifigance of Living Corosion

Death. A bright beacon in a sea storm
Endowing warnings of rocky shores.
"All hands on deck!" vessel now prepared;
The time-driven waves directing it
Homeward, no matter the ships technique.

"...I can feel my insides rotting..."
