Jim Yerman Poems
The Misunderstood Pun
All my life I’ve heard the groans yes, since I was a little one
Because for as long as I can remember I’ve been enamored with the pun.
For instance the other day Deborah and I were out discussing bees
She said she thought they were beautiful and asked if I agreed.
I said the answer to that question is on the Apiarist’s shoulder
Because beauty, as everyone knows, is in the eye of the bee holder.
See! A pun is not only ingenious but when the joke is through
People marvel at the witticism and how funny you are too.
(Although many times I must admit once ...
The Ipad Shuffle
It’s funny with all the technology available to which we have access
Unless it is our fingers and hands we exercise less and less.
But I have found the exception to this technological repercussion
That I gladly enter now into the exercise discussion.
I truly love the IPAD it has made life much better than before
But Deborah’s love borders on obsession …yes she’s and IPAD whore.
