Short Funny Rhyming Poems

Dusting Or Living
Poet: , 2012


There are many people,
In the world today,
That would rather clean,
Than go out and play.

They clean just in case,
Someone may arrive,
Not realizing those people,
Are out living their lives.

So much time wasted,
On cleaning your house.
Wouldn't you rather be
Out on the town with your spouse?

Personally I would much rather,
Be out and about,
Then sitting at home,
Cleaning with doubt.

I have a life,
In need of some play.
Who cares if my house,
Is not spotless each day?

A house is no home,
Unless its been lived in.
And living comes mess,
From the floor to the ceiling.

So dust if you must,
But remember this saying.
Life is too short,
Don't go wasting a day.

Old age will find you,
And it won't be discussed.
When you go as we all do,
You'll make much more dust!


"Humor is so healing . . .
and it's fun too."

Anne Wilson Schaef

Try Smiling
By Poet Unknown


When the weather suits you not, Try smiling.
When your coffee isn't hot, Try smiling.
When your neighbors don't do right,
Or your relatives all fight,
Sure 'tis hared, but then you might Try smiling.

Doesn't change the things, of course- Just smiling.
But it cannot make them worse- Just smiling.
And it seems to help your case,
Brightens up a gloomy place,
Then, it sort o' rests your face- Just smiling.

Smile
By Poet Unknown


Like a bread without the spreadin'.
Like a mattress without beddin',
Like a cart without a hoss,
Like a door without a latchstring,
Like a dry an' barren creed bed-
Is the face without a smile.
Like a house without a dooryard,
Like a clock without a mainspring,
That will never tell the hour;
A thing that sort o' makes yo' feel
A hunger all the while-
Oh, the saddest sight that ever was
Is a face without a smile!
The face of man was built for smiles,
An' thereby he is blest
Above the critters of the field,
The birds an' all the rest;
He's just a little lower
Than the angels in the skies,
An' the reason is that he can smile;
Therein his glory lies!
So smile an' don't forget to smile,
An' smile, an' smile ag'in
'Twill help you all along the way,
An' cheer you mile by mile;
An' so, whatever is your lot,
Jes' smile, an' smile, an' smile.

Smiles
Poet: Ella Wheeler Wilcox


Smile a little, smile a little,
As you go along,
Not alone when life is pleasant,
But when things go wrong.
Care delights to see you frowning,
Loves to hear you sigh;
Turn a smiling face upon her,
Quick the dame will fly.

Smile a little, smile a little,
All along the road;
Every life must have its burden,
Every heart its load.
Why sit down in gloom and darkness,
With your grief to sup?
As you drink Fate's bitter tonic
Smile across the cup.

Smile upon the troubled pilgrims
Whom you pass and meet;
Frowns are thorns, and smiles are blossoms
Oft for weary feet.
Do not make the way seem harder
By a sullen face,
Smile a little, smile a little,
Brighten up the place.

Smile upon your undone labor;
Not for one who grieves
O'er his task, waits wealth or glory;
He who smiles achieves.
Though you meet with loss and sorrow
In the passing years,
Smile a little, smile a little,
Even through your tears.
