Polyphemus’ Eye
Odysseus did smote you
As Greek Pupils know

Veiled in mystery
Grown men weaken at the knees
Turquoise pools entice

Tried to write eye jokes
But as I wrote, all day long
Each got Cornea

  2. Eyes from legend to sensual eyes to the usually unpoetic cornea! An entertaining series!

      Welcome to the world of Daddy Jokes KZ 🙂
      Those turquoise eyes still keep calling me back to that image.
      I hear the Romans used to say “Greeks, what have they ever given us?”

    always love the way you throw a great zinger into your works….we used to call my joking father “Kansas” as he loved a good (?) corny joke…

      HaHa…show me a Dad who doesn’t and I’ll show you a man who takes life too seriously!
      Thanks for your encouraging comments, they’re much appreciated 🙂

    Ah the classics and the humour…!

    • jrbsays says:

      Why do you haiku?
      Said the pupil to Master
      Because life is short

      Because life is short
      Let the classics be your stars
      Humour your compass

    What breath you have
    what depth you have
    what a funny man you are!!
    Thanks for another laugh out loud read!
    PS In our house the children refer to a corny one-liner as a ‘Dad joke.’

    • jrbsays says:

      Thank you WaboSabi…you’ve made my day 🙂
      In my house they’re Daddy Jokes, which are only slightly less embarrassing than Daddy Dancing.

  7. Haha, yes pun-haiku is needed. But your second one is very good.

  8. A smile with beauty and beauty with a smile 🙂
