National Poetry Month, Day 15

Reportedly, this is the world’s shortest poem, attributed to Ogden Nash (but under debate):

Fleas
Adam
Had ’em.

Ogden Nash did, however, pen these shortie-but-goodies:

Parsley
It’s gharsley

and

I like mustard
Even on custard

and

The trouble with a kitten is THAT
Eventually it becomes a CAT.

This may have been at the heart of why I loved Ogden Nash so much as a child — everything was poetry, no matter how long or short, how serious or funny.

EVERYTHING.
