Past Months: April 2022
By Kevin Ahern
Wordsmith
The drunk was said to be
Increasingly merry
Whenever he added to
His vodkabulary

Lots of Buzz, Though
Though the honeycomb film
To me was quite groovy
The critics complained
It was a bee movie

On the Job
Religious holidays all the time
No science holidays lurking
And there is one big reason why
Science is always working

Mixed Message
A conundrum I had
When I was a youth
Saying, “I’m lying in bed”
But telling the truth

Out on a Limb
When a mighty oak got ill
It found relief
By using a bit of
Accumulated sick leaf

Operating System
To drive them
You’ll need a log-in
Electric cars
Known as Voltswagons

Par for the Curse
To be dating a golfer
Many have found
Isn’t always easy
Cuz they like to play a round

For Cold Knights
A corduroy condom
That fits like a glove
Provides users with
A groovy kind of love

KG BS
On the top of the things
Worthy of condemnin’
Vladimir Putin
Is the crumb de la Kremlin

Getting Soaked
The scuba diver
To water marches
Paying expensive
Depth charges

Sigh in the Saddle
I’d really like to ride a horse
But think that I should mention
It probably won’t happen
Due to the mounting tension

All Fired Up
An arsonist knows
He’ll have to pay
If he commits
Crime brûlée

Sleepless in the Saddle
I have trouble sleeping
No way to ignore it
When I started a support group
Everyone was up for it

Name Game
If it’s true that people
From Poland are Poles
Does it follow that people
From Holland are Holes?

Going to Prism
I think I got this
Just about right
The heaviest rainbow
Is still pretty light

Travel Agent
The vacationing jogger
Who traveled to Rome
Is certainly running
Away from home

Missing Book
I ordered a book months ago
And I'm feeling quite deprived
It’s called “How to Scam People Online”
But it still has not arrived

Scrambled Logic
Evil chickens
Are the dregs
I hear they lay
Deviled eggs

Math Users
A lot of people heard the buzz
That Romans way back when
Found algebra quite easy cuz
X always equaled ten 

Reflexive
My hands act quickly to respond
Such versatility
But with reflexes always come
Great response ability

Pinch an Inch?
The fat farm has a name I love
Assigned it by its makers
If you are interested in going
Just look up “Belly Acres”

Feathered Fiend
My chicken died and came back as
A spook - it wasn’t nice
But ask yourself, whoever has
A personal poultrygeist?

Foot Where?
The subject of geography
Is one that I despise
For example, I thought Tripoli
Was just a wide shoe size

On the Level
Flat Earthers they are quite unsound
I think most are insane
The only way they get around
Is travel on a plane

Doggone
My little Pomeranian
Just made a mistake now, dammit
It went and looked Medusa in the eyes
And became a pomegranate

New Name and a Dress
That single lady planned, I’d say
Down to the last detail
The matter of her wedding day
She wants to know a veil

Supernatural
The clerks at Barnes and Noble
Don’t know what to do with themselves
Cuz the brand new book on poltergeists
Is flying off the shelves

To the Letter
It’s said that Stalin had success
Because of his decision
To write in lower case because
He hated capitalism

Conundrum
I admitted to my puzzlement
And made it known to him
With just this simple question
WTF is an acronym?

Blowing In
A cloud found out it couldn’t make
A storm, so it felt very blue
But then made up its mind that it
Would have to just make dew

Classical Dilemma
That Bach musician talked of woe
Hoping it would provoke
A donation of a bit of dough
Because he was baroque

Boogie Man
A snowman in the grocery store
To the carrot section goes
And makes a scene each time because
It’s where he picks his nose

Prose Pros
I went to visit my poet friend
My writing skills to hone
And she told me to sit right down
And make myself a tome

No Sugar, Please
When coffee additives duked it out
The lawsuit was a screamer
Legal experts refer to it
As creamer versus creamer
