Pie-Eyed

 Lemon pie, it is the best,

Topped with meringue, there’s no contest,

Into it, headfirst we will dive,

Don’t even need a fork. Or ‘knive’!

 

Our theme this month is lemon pie,

Topped with meringue to make you sigh,

And so I will (for all you folks)

Tell my favourite groaner jokes!

 

I love pie, you know I do,

My fam-i-ly all loves pie, too,

So when we’re looking for some snacks…

I guess we’re PIE-romaniacs!

 

Pie costs 3 bucks out in Cuba,

Four, way over in Aruba

They serve pies and we sing paeans,

To pie-rates of the Caribbean!

 

What’s white and fuzzy, lives up high,

Eating leaves and catching flies?

The trees of Borneo are grand

To the great meringue-a-tan!

 

In Aussie-land, they do like pie,

And chefs, they make it, by and by,

And when they set it ‘fore the gang,

They never, ever boo meringue.


And so that’s it, that’s all I’ve got,

Looking back, it’s not a lot…

And now I’m off, if you drop by,

Come and join me—we’ll eat pie!


Cause Mondays do get knocked a lot,
With poetry, we all besought
To try to make the week begin
With gentle thoughts,
Perhaps a grin?
So KarenCharlotteMimi, me
Have crafted poems for you to see.
And now you’ve read what we have wrought…
Did we help?
Or did we not?

Next week, angels we will be,
Come and join us. You will see!

Thinking of joining us for Poetry Monday?
We'd love to welcome you!

  4. Booooo......Trying to squeeze in one last blueberry pie (because our season is just about over and my pie requires fresh blueberries). I promise I will not share any puns about the process.

    1. If you are looking into October, the first Monday is the 3rd, but that day didn't have many "interesting" celebrations listed. The day prior, however, is Name Your Car Day, that might be a fun theme, discussing cars we've had and what their names should be.

      October 10 falls in the middle of the days celebrating the octopus and all its relatives. Maybe The Octopus (or squid or nautilus or cuttlefish) could be the topic.

      October 17 is Pasta Day. Your most memorable Italian meal might be a fun thing to explore.

      Other topics to explore not connected to any specific day, bathtubs, flowers, oatmeal.

      Halloween is obvious, but that day is also knock-knock joke day.

      A few for thought, and thank you again for hosting every week!
