200?!

200?!

Hey Team,

In honor of my one hundredth day amtrekking I composed a few haikus in and effort to expose my soul to the world.

Now I’m knee deep in my TWO HUNDREDTH day. So enjoy the limericks.

There was a homeless dude named Brett
He took all the adventure he could get
He’s just a young buck
Who gets by on his luck
Let’s just hope he can pay off the debt

He’s just some guy with a list
Who knew his job wouldn’t be missed
So with Charley in tow
He put on a show
But if he’s not done by July he’ll be pissed

He has no sense of direction
No weapons for protection
A hatred of the cold
He’s brave and he’s bold
…and kind of an idiot

Um…limericks might be a little bit harder than haikus. Here’s the format I was told. Lines 1, 2, and 5 of Limericks have seven to ten syllables and rhyme with one another. Lines 3 and 4 of Limericks have five to seven syllables and also rhyme with each other.

Let’s see what you’ve got. Impress me with your 200th day limericks people.

And thanks AGAIN for keeping me company on this epic mission, team!

Im done.

Brett.

If you like the poetry then it wouldn’t hurt to…


Don’t let me stop you.

  1. Brett is a logical guy
    He has a list you can pry
    Some things to be done
    Some things will be fun
    And others require retry.

    My friend appears a boy-wonder
    He wishes to seek all but blunder
    A mishap arrives
    But not in my eyes
    He finds a way before we sunder

    Creative writing has
    never been my strong suit,
    so- yeah…..
    that’s the best you’re
    going to get out of me. 🙂

  2. Brett is a guy with a hat
    his laptop is getting pretty fat
    but not like the grace
    that is George Pechmann’s face
    I guess we should both try a diet.

  3. On a vacation of destined elation
    where his home is no single location
    he dons a faded green hat
    and a wallet gone flat
    so you should probably make a donation

    Theres a wanderlust man with a pack
    of electronic stuff on his back
    on a trip far from home
    he just says “when in rome”
    hoping he’ll find a bed and a snack
    ****************************

    On a journey with travel by train
    he fights through the cold and the rain
    sometimes covered in dirts
    cause he has just 2 shirts
    and you’ll still never hear him complain

  4. Holy crap! Here’s a complaint for you: How come every time I write a poem I get blown out of the FREAKIN water buy one of you people!

    Nice job, Team!

    ilott…wow.

  5. aaron is very verbose,
    from his head to the tip of his toes,
    he spends every day,
    reading the dictionary for pay,
    no wonder he looks so morose!

    ***********************************

    There once was a man from NorCal,
    Who considered stragers his pals,
    so he left his job and his home,
    now the country he roams,
    and serves to inspire us all!

  6. Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
    What Kazinsky must surely have known
    That an intern is better
    Than a bomb in a letter
    Given the choice of how to be blown.
