Chacun À Son Berlitz

Chacun À Son Berlitz

French is easy.
 At speaking French I am the champ of the Champs-Élysée,
 And since I can speak Parisian without a flaw,
 I will tell you why the crows, or les corbeaux, always win their
 battle against the scarecrows: it's on account of their
 esprit de caw.

Ogden Nash


A Lady Who Thinks She Is Thirty

Unwillingly Miranda wakes,
Feels the sun with terror,
One unwilling step she takes,
Shuddering to the mirror.

Miranda in Miranda’s sight
Is old and gray and dirty; 91 more words


Poem - A Word To Husbands

To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.


Poem - Always Marry An April Girl

Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
April golden, April cloudy,
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April soft in flowered languor, 15 more words

(Apologies to Ogden Nash)

God in His wisdom let people die
God in His wisdom made them all fry

The People, they cried
Why Dear God Why? 73 more words

Crossing The Border 

Senescence begins
And middle age ends
The day your descendants
Outnumber your friends.
