The Psychic’s Advice

Written for:  November 2022 PAD Chapbook Challenge - Day 18

"For today's prompt, write a funny poem. Of course, funny is subjective, and sometimes it's not even funny (at least in the humorous sense of the word). After all, there are times when something smells funny, tastes funny, or even seems funny (but not ha-ha funny, more weird funny). So get funny today!"


A man went to visit a psychic
to see if he'd remain a neurotic.
He was phobic, and feared
women thought he was weird.
She advised, deodorant should do the trick.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
