Regarding humor and the path:

A young Buddha once stubbed his toe
On a roadside and cried in his woe:
...."I veered off the path
....And incurred naught but wrath.
The middle way now I shall go!"

I used to think Morya was stern:
You had to be stoic to learn!
....He then let it slip
....He enjoyed a good quip!
With serious Joy I now burn.

One more:

A tortoise and hare had a race
And not about swiftness of pace.
....The way it was won
....Was to see both as one.
They each ended up in first place.

Thank you, Donna, for your sweet limerick! I will keep it on hand for those days when I desire a self-esteem boost. So, you and Richard got me going, you both may be sorry!

I sat down to write a nice sonnet
But a bee got into my bonnet
And buzzed, "A limerick
Will be ever so quick"
So my sonnet was foiled, dog-gone it!

There was a young man, Francis Bacon
Who was truly a prince, not fakin'
His mom, who was queen,
Was really so mean,
Never a king did she make 'im!

There was an old man, Francis Bacon
Who pretended to die--he was fakin'
He went on to live
Great secrets to give
At eighty-eight, free did God make 'im!
