Ponderisms



How about this bit of logic, my friend If people from Poland are called Poles What would you call people from Holland? Methinks they might be called Holes When taking a picture of a piece of cheese What word do you ask it to say? Okay, I'm aware that cheese doesn't talk Where's your sense of the sillies today? Do you think infants enjoy their infancy As much as adults enjoy adultery? Probably not I would hazard a guess Adultery can make you go loopy! “I am” is the shortest sentence there is Could it be, “I do” is the longest? Why is the man who invests your money Called a broker, apropos I guess! Last night I played a blank tape full blast The mime next door went berserk Coz mimes can only hear silent sounds Bet you never heard this strange quirk! © Jack Ellison 2013
