A Goodbye Rush Limbaugh Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Rush-Limbaugh

A When You Don’t Know How To Drive In Snow Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

stuck-car (2)
Most people is Houston don’t know how to drive in the snow.
The Mayor is telling people to stay home. Not an option for many, but driving cautiously is an option for everybody. Not an option for fools.

Houston, we have a problem…it snowed
Made worse by nuts out on the road.
And there’s no reason why!
They can’t drive when it’s dry,…
It must be part of the “idiot code!”

A Woman’s Computer Dating Disclaimer Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

e-dating
Thinking about this on Valentine’s Day.

Dating is daunting, especially now with the pandemic making the “meet and greet” a bad option for those staying safe with the Best Practices to not contract nor spread the virus. Computer, or e-dating, has been, is and will be a practical way to meet, communicate, and see if there might be a “connection” (similar interests, compatibility, chemistry); and, if all the cosmic tumblers fall into place, find a meaningful, lasting relationship. Computer dating has proven results. People do find love and get married.

I was tempted

but I resisted

when I had no hunger

I said, “No”

An Insane Conspiracy Theory That Makes MAGA Psychobabble Seem Normal

As It Was

by HemmingPlay

As it was in the beginning,
so still it is.

The hourglass turned then,
the sand measures time, again.

This is no tragedy, merely
the nature of things.

I perceive I am dying—
as does everything—but since birth.

The Mayfly, the tortoise;
the orchid, mosquito. We

don’t leave much behind.
Remorseless winds grind even

Pharoh’s magnificent stones to dust.
(Like them, I can’t imagine a world without me.)

It’s hard to see past that.
But we ride the last grain of sand through

the passage, just wide enough, and this spirit
escapes time and space, again.

For now, I only wonder to what I’m ancestral
This time. Was I any good?

An Instant

by HemmingPlay

In every life,
there’s a moment, or two.

The curve of your neck
out of that corduroy man’s shirt,

Burnt orange,
of autumn; passing of the old.

How unaware you were
that our child-like lives had just changed.

That’s not quite the right word.
They rearranged themselves

Into a new pattern, the right one.
Like random iron filings on paper

Which, when a magnet comes near,
Spring instantly into order,

Obedient to the
Truth of an invisible force.

A Democracy Makes Choices Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

The election was historic. More people voted than in any other election before it. America should be very proud of that. It is what makes America the greatest country in the world. And though the election clearly showed that we are a divided nation right now, I am confident that once the post election chaos and litigation comes to an end, which will happen sooner before later, the greatest country in the world will do what it always has done – come together to find answers to the problems facing our great nation and make America an even greater place to live and pursue happiness.
