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


O cool in the summer is salad,
    And warm in the winter is love;
And a poet shall sing you a ballad
    Delicious thereon and thereof.
A singer am I, if no sinner,
    My muse has a marvellous wing,
And I willingly worship at dinner
        The Sirens of Spring.

Take endive--like love it is bitter,
    Take beet--for like love it is red;
Crisp leaf of the lettuce shall glitter,
    And cress from the rivulet's bed;
Anchovies, foam-born, like the lady
    Whose beauty has maddened this bard;
And olives, from groves that are shady;
        And eggs--boil 'em hard.

                                        Mortimer Collins.
