De-Puzzlers



If lawyers get de-barred and clergymen de-frocked Does it naturally follow and make sense That electricians are de-lighted and cowboys de-ranged? Need some answers, no sitting on the fence! Can a motorist be de-fined, a balloon's mood de-flated This silliness surely must stop Do dead mailmen de-liver, are old ships de-ported Better stop before I call a burly cop Do musicians get de-noted, dry cleaners de-pressed? Now hold on, I'm getting quite upset Can models be de-posed, do tree surgeons de-bark? Haven't heard any answers as yet Do skirts get de-pleted, has your hair been de-parted? This must be some kind of a plot Artists quit by de-sign, symphonies de-compose? I think about de's things a lot! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack did I say I love you lately. This was such a fun, silly, well written poem. A delight to read.

    Your poems are very humorous and I enjoy them very much. I just have a question sir. On the rating of poems is seven the best or is one the best?

    Seven is the best but I don't think too many people pay much attention to them. If I've taken the time to read a poem, something must have caught my attention so I automatically give it a 7. I see you are new to the site... WELCOME my friend!!!

    Oh wow I love this piece! It's a great attack on the silliness of the English language and this whole poem is just tremendously clever... I'll be looking out for your name. Thanks for the laugh!
