Category: Funny Cynicism Poems
Classic humorous and funny poems using cynicism and a disdain for general opinion, as well as distrust of the intentions of others.
THE THIRD PROPOSITION
f I were thine, I'd fail not of endeavour
To make thy daily life, now and forever,
I'd watch thy moods, I'd toil and wait, with yearning,
Incessant incense at thy dear shrine burning,
If I were thine.
If thou wert mine, quite changed would be these features.
Then, I suspect,
Thou wouldst the humblest prove of loving creatures,
And not object
To do the very things I am declaring
I'd undertake for thee, with selfless daring,
If thou wert mine.
If we were ours? And now, here comes the riddle!
How would that work?
I'm sure you'd never stoop to second fiddle,
And--I might shirk
The part of serf. And, likewise, each might neither
Be willing slave or servitor of either,
If we were ours!
