Ok, now I have to break up all the fun for a little grammar lesson…

Homonyms are only word pairs like, where and wear (which would work for the poems), but since the poem allow for pairs such as “classic” to go with “class. ICK!” you would have to call the poems phonetic and not homonymic. So, the original poster was actually correct.





Actually, homonyms (from the Latin for "same name") are words that are BOTH spelled the same and prounounced the same, but have different meanings. EX: quiver (verb - to shake or move with a slight trembling motion) and quiver (noun - a case for holding arrows).

What y'all are actually dealing with are homophones (from the Latin for "same sound"), two or more words that are pronounced alike, but are different in spelling or meaning.

I'm not giving up dammit...

Easily burn do heads that are bald
Hats are a must, to protect from a scald
"If only I knew" the pink headed man bawled
To bring down the temp. drink water, ice cold


That wasn't fun.
Is it possible to be homophonically, phonetically and possibly homonymously challeged all at the same time?

LITTLE RICHARD SANG
"LUCILLE"
WHILE THE ANIMAL TRAINER YELLED,
"LOOSE SEAL!"

I ALWAYS THOUGHT HENDRIX SAID
"'SCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THIS GUY"
MY FRIENDS LAUGHED AT ME 'CAUSE HE REALLY SAID
"'SCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THE SKY"

OK it's a stretch...

For all of you Monty Python fans out there:

Off on a journey with hand on sceptre
Sent by mysterious knights who say "Ni!"
They won't find a shrubbery except for
The angry dark knight cut off at the knee.

In a rescue attempt deemed perilous
The brave knights did rescue Sir Gallahad
Now that young knight finds himself peril-less
And cries "That coulda been the gal I had!"
"All of these skirts that I could have chased,
Now I shall remain forever chaste."

Very Good, Mai Tai!

I don't think I can match 6 in one poem.

Thankya, thankyaverymuch. I was going to cram in something about the land being pear-less, but decided to quit while I was ahead.

Speaking of quitting while ahead, let's try one in Limerick form:

There once was a guy from Austin
Who crammed his sports bag into his Austin
He crammed it all in,
But when he got to the Inn
He found his balls had been swiped by Jane Austen!

Such ripe, fine produce -
Canteloupe! orange! tomato! pears!
