It all began with a song and a dance, and my sock tucked into my pants. Writing silly poetry is an extreme passion of mine. Our world can be so harsh and sad; but I strive to celebrate the goofiness, the wackiness, and the downright ridiculousness of life. And what better way than to make kids of all ages laugh.
This project has been a passion of mine for two years, it all started in April 2020. The world was going through some changes, and I wanted a way to celebrate National Poetry Month without being able to leave the house. So, I would write poems and then record myself reading them, which then turned to me posting them on social media. I had a blast! That's when I decided that I needed to put together a collection.
And so, I did.
Now the next mission was to find an artist. That should be easy, I'm friends with lots of artists! Wait... I'm friends with lots of artists, how can I possibly ask just one?
I couldn't. So, I asked lots of them!
I am so excited to bring to you my collection of silly poems and goofy limericks, illustrated by some of the best artists around.
Who are these artists you ask? Well, not to drop names but:
Jay P. Fosgitt, Scoot McMahon, Dan Dougherty, Aleroart, Scott Beaderstadt, Rich Bloom, Megan Clelan, Shane Kirshenblatt, Zack Orlea, and Skarekro
Have all joined in on my mission to bring silliness to your faces!
