Oh, what is absurd?
A featherless bird?

If I baked a cake
and sliced it in thirds
would anyone take
a piece of absurd?

If I rode a horse
all saddled and spurred
would I be the worse
for being absurd?

When memory fails
and photos are blurred
I'll tell you a tale
both true and absurd.

Forget being sober
and pleasures deferred
just give all that over
and live life absurd!

Oh, what is absurd?
A meaningless word.

I like and admire this poem a lot.
With its lilting rhythm and rhyme,
it is more than absurd!

Your poem has a hint of Dr. Seuss and Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes playing around. How wonderfully absurd. Have a great day.

What a nice poem! Very light. I agree with Michelle; it has a nursery rhyme feeling to it. Good job;)
