Written as a challenge from a fellow writer that I admire.

Wind of A Smartass (Limerick)

I was given a challenge from Han Van Meegerin http://www.wikinut.com/author~sionok/Han-Van-Meegerin/ in the comments for my article on "I'm confused". The challenge was not a real challenge, but he said "Funny stuff. You are a wise guy. I thought you were going to use "wind" and "smart ass" in a sentence. Maybe next time."

Well, Han, I've given it some thought and you must understand that I wrote "I'm Confused" for a reason. A smartass is also known as a blowhard that confuses the issues at any given moment. So here it is.

Wind Of A Smartass

A wind is what can disturb
The leaves in your mind, once it's heard.
The wind of a smartass
Blows through, but alas,
It rustles the leaves of sound words.

I guess it is not entirely coincidence that "smart" rhymes with "fart" :-}

If you challenge Don Rothra to write/ Best be read to read what he writes./ It may be a surprise/ To your brain and your eyes,/ It might tickle and, at times, it may bite!

2nd line: "be" should have been "to.".... semper imperfectus abundus.

Its beyond me
to admire smells of those kinds
emanating like''fuselage form'' human bodies...
but this time I'd have to make an exception
coming from friend Don a great writer over here..He....
