Celebrating Poetry Month in True, Gods-Are-Bored Style!

April is National Poetry Month! Hooray! We at "The Gods Are Bored" love poetry!

Now, a lot of bloggers offer you the finest literary verse during this thirty-day period. But this is The Gods Are Bored, where life is a laugh! (alliteration)

So this month, we will be offering poetry as well, but just the funny stuff.

We'll start with a bang!

Moose and Goose
by Theodore Seuss Geisel

A moose is asleep. He is dreaming of moose juice.
A goose is asleep. He is dreaming of goose juice.
That's well and good when a moose dreams of moose juice.
And nothing goes wrong when a goose dreams of goose juice.
But it isn't too good when a moose and a goose
Start dreaming they're drinking the other one's juice.
Moose juice, not goose juice, is juice for a moose.
And goose juice, not moose juice, is juice for a goose.
So, when goose gets a mouthful of juices of mooses
And moose gets a mouthful of juices of gooses
They always fall out of their beds screaming screams
So, I'm warning you, now! Never drink in your dreams.

Wise advice from Dr Seuss, as always.

Longest word, that is: smiles.

a whole mile between each 'S'. :P
