Poetry Games

A couple of weeks ago, a friend, Cam, invited my wife and I to a party - a party featuring a lot of music. We agreed, but my schedule wouldn't allow any musical preparation. Cam suggested that I write a poem instead. A cool idea, so I did. In fact, I wrote two - dedicated to Cam and his wife, Judy: (As always, you may only copy these poems for non-commercial fun - unless you obtain written permission from me, Davis L. Bigelow.)

The Limerick of Cam

There once was a man name of Cam,
Who was filled with a whole ton of spam.
Cam asked marriage of Judy,
Who felt none to prudy,
And ran off with the man and his spam!

Once I got warmed up, I wrote this one:
Ode to Cam & Judy

Here’s a poem for you,
Mister Cam Lamoureux.
And it’s not just for you,
But your wife, Judy, too!

It’s a quick-witted rhyme,
Prompting laughter like chime.
It’s not rude, lewd or crude,
But not pretty - like Jude.

Cam’s the king of his house.
Though he’s short – like a mouse.
If it weren’t for his bride,
He’d be doomed to his pride.

With the name Lamoureux,
Cam can’t help but be true.
And when she yells, “Hey you!”
He’s a wild kangaroo!

Leaping right to her side,
Taking life in its stride.
Cuz its all about love;
Both for now and above.

So Cam still courts his Judy.
She’s forever his beauty.
And Jude’s love through and through,
Is for Cam Lamoureux.

Oh! You're so sweet. I think it's awesome that you can write poems on a whim such as these. I can NOT for the lif of me such a task. You are very talented in that area..and others.

Thanks for sharing them, Davis, I enjoyed them both. :) And I'm sure Cam and Jusy loved them. What a cool gift!

Thanks for the comments. If any of you would like me to try writing a poem in your honour (or someone else's), just tell me some things about yourself or themselves - the more information the better and I will see if my magic wand can dispense some ink. Actually, you should get a close friend to tell me about you as well as offering your own insights. That way I get more perspective. Anyway, if you want to try this, just email me the info and I'll email something fun back to you. If you like what I write, you can post it on your blog, give it to someone as a uniquely personal gift, or both.
