And he would be brought to you by the letter "J"

If I could design
My own little Muppet
He'd be a serene
(Maybe green) little puppet
Instead of cavorting
With Kermit the Frog
His job (so rewarding!)
Involves this old log
Which he'll use to clobber everyone who hates my poetry but he'll do it in a really cute way and...
Wait... this doesn't rhyme...

This one I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Why? Because of the way it starts all poemy and stuff but then suddenly crashes into the abutment of absurdity. A masterpiece!

Brian Miller said...

Susan said...

Janna said...

MikeWJ: Whew! I was worried, after last week, you know....

Brian: Yaaaay! After all, the really good log swingers ARE the serene ones. Or so I hear.

Susan: Thank you! :)

G-Man: Gaaahhh! You're right, I did make a mistake and did 56 instead of 55. It's ok, I just went back and fixed it. It's 55 now! Really! Go count!

Monkey Man said...

Every Friday you club me in a cute way. Awesome 55. My 55 will be here after Midnight Pacific time.

Akannie said...

Neener, neener, neener....

You'll count more carefully NEXT time, Missy....

LMAO....

Big sloppy smoochies....

Buzzard said...

A poet with anger issues.

That's motivation!

Thom said...

LOL I love this. What an ending. I didn't see that coming. Very nice 55. Have a great Friday :)

Peter Stone said...

Ah, you cracked me up, specially with that ending. Thanks for my comedy fix for today.

Sherry said...

I like your quirkiness...and it took me a minute to figure out why you gave it that name!

Alicia said...

I love the Flash 55s that make me laugh. Thanks for making me laugh.


Here's mine.

Grace said...

Serene and clobbering people don't go together...

Susan at Stony River said...

That's my kind of poetry LOL

And it's better than bad, it's good! (oh no, you've put the log song in my head...!!)

Titanium said...

What kind of troll could hate your poetry? Bash 'em with a log, I say.

I loved this!

Mama Zen said...

Awesome!

Can you design one for me, too?

Janna said...

MonkeyMan: Luckily for me, you enjoy being clubbed in a cute way! :)

Sh@KiR@ CK: Amazing, isn't it? Now I have to actually, like, pay attention and stuff...

G-Man: I am a perfectionist. Mistakes kill me. Now and then I still have pangs of sorrow over a word I got wrong in the 7th grade regional spelling bee. Chocolate helps the pain subside for short periods of time. (Do you have any?)

Akannie: I am so ashamed... :)

Buzzard: Exactly!

Thom: Hi, there! You have a nice weekend too.

Peter Stone: Glad I could provide a useful community service. :) LOL!

Sherry: At first I was going to have it be the letter "Q" but then I realized "J" was more appropriate. :)

Alicia: Yay! :) You're welcome.

Grace: Sure it does! It's called "multitasking".

Susan: Agghh! LOL! Now I'll have that song in my head all evening. Hear that? I'm humming it already...

Titanium: I'll keep two logs ready, just in case the first one breaks. :)

MamaZen: I should start up a business! The muppet people would probably sue me, but that would just give me more to blog about, right? :)

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

As if my opinion counts for anything.

Janna said...

MikeWJ: Of course it does! Well, except for the time when I went ahead and did the vegetarian week even after you told me not to. And when I ignored your advice to write a book... and maybe that other time, and...
Hey!
Of COURSE it matters.
No, really.
Especially if you have a British accent.

Renz said...

Yay! Good to be back at your blog!
In case you forgot, I've been an avid follower :)

PattiKen said...

You are so clever, and I always feel like grinning after visiting your posts. Good job!

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

I can have a British accent. How about a spot of tea to go with those crumpets, dear? See? British, through and through.

Janna said...

Renz: Welcome back! Where were you?

PattiKen: Yay! :)

MikeWJ: You CAN have a British accent? Or do you ALWAYS have one? I can never tell. Ever since turning 40, my hearing is going downhill. But yes, I would like an odyssey with my trumpets.
