Category: Funny Burlesque Poems
       Classic humorous and funny poems using comic imitation and exaggeration in an absurd way.


From Arranmore the weary miles I've come;
    An' all the way I've heard
A Shrawn[1] that's kep' me silent, speechless, dumb,
    Not sayin' any word.
An' was it then the Shrawn of Eire,[2] you'll say,
    For him that died the death on Carrisbool?
It was not that; nor was it, by the way,
    The Sons of Garnim[3] blitherin' their drool;
Nor was it any Crowdie of the Shee,[4]
    Or Itt, or Himm, nor wail of Barryhoo[5]
For Barrywhich that stilled the tongue of me.
'Twas but my own heart cryin' out for you
Magraw![6] Bulleen, shinnanigan, Boru,
Aroon, Machree, Aboo![7]

                                     Arthur Guiterman.
