       Classic humorous and funny poems using irony, exaggeration and ridicule, to expose and criticize stupidity and vices.


                 One evening while reclining
                 In my easy-chair, repining
O'er the lack of true religion, and the dearth of common sense,
                 A solemn visaged lady,
                 Who was surely on the shady
Side of thirty, entered proudly, and to crush me did commence:

                 "I sent a poem here, sir,"
                 Said the lady, growing fiercer,
"And the subject which I'd chosen, you remember, sir, was 'Spring';
                 But, although I've scanned your paper,
                 Sir, by sunlight, gas, and taper,
I've discovered of that poem not a solitary thing."

                 She was muscular and wiry,
                 And her temper sure was fiery,
And I knew to pacify her I would have to--fib like fun.
                 So I told her ere her verses,
                 Which were great, had come to--bless us,
We'd received just sixty-one on "Spring," of which we'd printed one.

                 And I added, "We've decided
                 That they'd better be divided
Among the years that follow--one to each succeeding Spring.
                 So your work, I'm pleased to mention,
                 Will receive our best attention
In the year of nineteen-forty, when the birds begin to sing."

                                                                                            Parmenas Mix.
