Do You Remember This Joke?

“Choose a joke or riddle with stock characters. A priest, a rabbi, and a nun. A farmer’s daughter and a traveling salesman. … We’re not talking about political correctness here. You might think about stereotypes and racial issues as you look up jokes and riddles online. Find a joke or riddle that speaks to you, and then create your own poem based on its characters.”

-Kim Addonizio


I apologize ahead of time for this poem. It is probably the worst I’ve ever posted.



A naked blond walks into a bar

She carries a poodle

and salami

She lays the poodle on the table

A subtle indication of her intentions

Although, reticence is not a strength

The blond knows

She will never be forgotten

But no one will remember

Her face
