Grandpa's Tongue-in-Cheek Poetry
by Hans G. Frischmuth

This is an accumulation of comical poetry
Assembled over the years;
Each poem marking a special occasion,
Always looking for unusual and unexpected
Punch lines.

My little granddaughter once said that
I am the only one laughing about my jokes.

So I am sending this book on a mission
To find someone else who will.
