How To Write A Funny Birthday Poem

You’ll need to get into the right mood to write a funny birthday poem for a boyfriend.

You don’t want to be listening to sad or somber music for instance.

You also don’t want to be distracted by other people.

You will need to have the right writing instruments.

While you can write almost anything on a computer, I find that I am more creative when I take pen to paper and actually use my handwriting.

When you write your poem, you want it to be on the short side.

It is very difficult to write a long, funny poem. Keep the poem under 12 lines at the most.

Don’t force the poem to come.

Instead, keep a notebook with you at all times so that you can jot down inspiring and humorous observations any time they strike you.

Start with using rhyming poetry as it feels more like a “poem”.

As you advance, you can use free verse.

You don’t need an expensive rhyming dictionary from the bookstore because there are a number of free ones online.

Limericks are a great model for humorous poetry.

A limerick is a short poem known for its wit.

Limericks have 5 lines. Lines 1, 2, and 5 must rhyme.

These lines also have three beats or stressed syllables.

These are the long lines of the poem.

The meter is da da DA da da DA da da DA.

Lines 3 and 4 are shorter and they rhyme with each other. They have just two beats.

Writing a birthday limerick is simple. It doesn’t take a lot of time.

If you are short on cash, a simple birthday limerick is a great way to celebrate someone special without breaking the bank.

Here’s an example:

I have chanced on a great birthday present,
Not expensive champagne, duck, or pheasant,
But a lim’rick — some humor
To dispel the old rumor,
That a birthday is not something pleasant.

Limericks are fun and you have the chance to show how clever you are.

Here’s an example of a romantic limerick that makes a funny birthday poem for a boyfriend.

I think his birthday is just dandy,
With flowers and hearts and the candy.
The part I like best
Is when he's undressed,
Suggesting we do something randy

Whether you choose rhyming, free form, or limerick poetry, present it to him with a flourish.

Read it out loud to him and also present it with nice writing on pretty paper.

That’s how you write a funny birthday poem for a boyfriend.

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
