I really enjoy comic verse.  Why not have a forum called "The Funny Bone" or something like that especially for humorous poetics?  

I scanned the poet's forum
but the sites were all to "borum"
for postin' giggly silly wares.
To make this forum no one dares.
I guess the verbal clowns'll wait
and go on doing what they hate,
namely sticking slapstick verse
with poet's "poems of the hearse."
For how can belly laughs adorn
a place made first to muse and mourn,
as poet minds are apt to do.
(and yet they need a tickle too!!)
Please heed my not so silent plea
whoever has the "techno-key"
to make a laughin poet's hall.
We jest want our respect, that's all!


What do ya'll think?

How humorous
This funny bone
Some comic verse
This forum's known

It is however
Scattered round
In one sole place
It's never found

Perhaps a touch
of wizardry
From one who holds
the Techno-key

A grand idea
And I for one
Prefer light fare
'Tis much more fun...

and like a silly little melody
we'll make sure the Wizard sees
this request that comes from thee...

Far be it from me to disagree,
But, I like my humor spontaneously.
Sprinkled 'round the forums here.
Surprised when I find that bit of cheer.

When I least expect to find a smile,
I like stumbling into a bit of glee.
Mix it up like a Vaudeville show
and we will surely get a chuckle from me.

But Marge,  I wouldn't dare imply
to leave all other forums dry
or say that humor can't appear
(for that would make these places drear!)
I only meant to say somehow
perhaps it's time.  Perhaps it's now
that we should help these smiles that roam.
For even clowns deserve a home.
If they had such a place of rest
where they could soak their clown feet best
and wash their red and frizzy wigs
and smoke a few exploding cigs
or polish up their red round noses,
we would find good humor growses!
And they would visit more and more,
for spreading grins is what they're for!!!
They jest desire a place to live
I plea... Is this too much to give?
But Oh if not.  It'll be okay
they'll give us giggles anyway.
They'll go on shining laughter's sun
just so we can have some fun.
But do remember underneath
those flappy suits and wind-up teeth,
past polka dots and jugglin' balls
a bleeding human clown heart calls.


(Not to be taken too seriously!!!!!)

I agree......sometimes im in the mood for a funny poem and i have to search the masses for them.

All those in favor say Aye
AYE!
