Category: Funny Bathos Poems
       Classic humorous and funny poems ranging from the sublime to the trivial and ridiculous.


    Be brave, faint heart,
        The dough shall yet be cake;
    Be strong, weak heart,
        The butter is to come.
Some cheerful chance will right the apple-cart,
The devious pig will gain the lucky mart,
        Loquacity be dumb,--
        Collapsed the fake.
    Be brave, faint heart!

    Be strong, weak heart,
        The path will be made plain;
    Be brave, faint heart,
        The bore will crawl away.
The upside down will turn to right side up,
The stiffened lip compel that slipping cup,
        The doldrums of the day
        Be not in vain.
    Be strong, weak heart!

    Be brave, faint heart,
        The jelly means to jell;
    Be strong, weak heart,
        The hopes are in the malt.
The wrong side in will yet turn right side out,
The long-time lost come down yon cormorant spout.
        Life still is worth her salt:
        What ends well's well.
    Be brave, faint heart!

            Newton Mackintosh.
