Cooking up a Grook

I'd like to cook up a Grook 
But  I have no words fry
Except,  we live 'til we die
And still nobody knows why.

Very witty, Suzanne. I'm not familiar with this form, but your grook is well written. T.J

The Grook is one of my favorite verse forms, after the Clerihew. Much can be said in a few lines. Thanks for stopping by. / M

Ha! Excellent first attempt at the grook! I like the humor of your first two lines, where you ponder on what to write. Too bad you couldn't have entered in the contest ... but nonetheless you wrote a good one. I think in your second line you meant to say, "no words TO fry".

Hi Tim: You are right I did mean that . Will edit it and fix it. Thanks. Yes interesting how myths originate. They didn't have Snopes back in those days either.
