Mazed

I must admit, I’ve never even seen a corn maze. True,
And if you set me down in one, I’d not know what to do.
But I’ve heard tales and you will see before this post is through,
Knowledge isn’t what you need to tell a joke or two.

"At first, I’ll tell of one young man who thought it was no joke
When inexperience got him corn-ered by some country folk!"
Okay, I’m sorry, that was bad, I did not mean to provoke,
And I’ll do better so some reader doesn’t have a stroke!

This one, you must admit the kiddies really think is bold!
3 of 4 expressed affection when we had them polled.
"A secret’s hard to keep inside a corn maze, so I’m told,
Because of all the ears beneath the tassels made of gold!"

I’m blonde and I have heard there is a corn maze just for me
And others, like me, who would travel out so they can see,
This truly splendid play place that is fun (and worry-free),
We all will be successful I can almost guarantee!

Okay, one more and then my maze poem will be at an end,
Come here and join me by the bonfire. Warm your hands, my friend!
If you adored it, checks and dollars really won’t offend,
Cause it’s the most a-maze-ing poem that I have ever penned!


Each month we write upon a theme
Some folks think we're clever!
And we have such a lot of fun,
We'll do this thing forever!

  2. Corn mazes! Wow, I did not even know they existed. It's an a-maze-ing ting, and your "bad" jokes are fun. Thanks!

  3. You are as good a poet as you are a writer. If you ever come to upstate New York again, there are several corn mazes you can choose from. Just in case you want to experience one. I never have, either. I'm sure my poem wouldn't be as good.

  4. Your poetry frequently a-mazes me, Diane - and how you can work JOKES into poems with perfect rhythm, meter and rhyme is beyond me!

    I've seen that same picture with a different caption: Corn Maze For Old People - and I don't feel too far from being one of them the last while - lol

  5. I'm a little insulted by that Corn Maze for Blondes. There should be TWO corn stalks so at least they can walk through as well as around.
    LOVE your poems.

  6. Being one who is terrified of corn mazes-i was raised with the lesson of Never Go in the Corn Field at threat of being lost and then picked with the corn, this is great!!

  7. So cute and funny, I really enjoyed them. But I've never visited your site and been disappointed yet.
