FOR BARBARA COHEN—LEARNING LIMERICKS

FOR BARBARA COHEN–LEARNING LIMERICKS*

A RAISE IN RANK

Mail persons come by for the mail,

Sat “HI” ti the Guard without fail…

Without tests to proctor

The Guard is called “Doctor”,

Is there secret knowledge  availed?

CAMERA MAGNIFICATION

Big bugs on CCTV,

Bigger than the cars you see…

That giant bug size

Fools the eyes—

Just closer to the camera  they be!

COST/BENEFIT ANALYSIS

Learning a language is cheap

Compared to the potential heap…

Of understanding mistakes

Of one who takes

Translators to every meet!

–Jonathan Caswell
