You know as well as I do
That Chayav’s not a lady!January 20, 2011 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #833813
The one you refer to
is certainly not I,
but in my own right,
I’m a “shticky guy”
Thanks!January 20, 2011 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #833814YW Moderator-80Member

Howie’s now in
so that for his health
he can be more autonomous
He won’t need his shrink;
he won’t need his mother.
He won’t need to rely
on any other.
So when he goes shopping,
he won’t buy any donuts.
He’ll shop at the fruit store,
he won’t go to Oh! Nuts!January 21, 2011 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #833816
Good Shabbos,Good Shabbos
A day with no “mouse”
No typing,no griping,
Just peace in the house
The older we get
The more it makes sense
Shabbos teaches us
TO ENJOY THE PRESENT TENSE
(without being tense!)January 21, 2011 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #833817
Ds Yochid- I’m quite amazed
Where were you till now
With your rhyming craze?
I laughed out loud when I read each of your poem
To my luck, my kids were home
They saw me laughing & thought mom’s nuts
Now I look like the biggest klutz.
Your talent we now all know
So continue to entertain us one two three go!
This thread is so much fun
Just read it for the first time
I really laughed ton
So thanks to all for your rhyme!January 21, 2011 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #833818
I’m still new at this rhyming,
I’m only a rookie,
but I thank you for your kind words,
Our obsession with coffee,
from our rest should not rob us,
so I now will log off,
and wish all a “Good Shabbos”!January 21, 2011 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #833819
I wrote a poem on purple
And about our holy day
A compliment I seek
Yup-pathetic–all the way!January 21, 2011 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #833820
daas yochid u are only 1 opinion
to make me stop talking ull need a minyan
a bubby is allowed to enjoy
even if im not a teenage boy
so i get drunk whenever i need
but to all youngsters please take heed
getting drunk is not a simple think
but listen to me cuz i am the king
a few shots will last u a long time
and if u use vodka drink it with lime
beer is a low percentage drink
so u wont get drunk in a blink
wine is tha chiyuv that the rabbis say
but hwvr u do it remember chayavinishlivisumayJanuary 22, 2011 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #833821
I liked your poem, Chayav
but there’s just one thing,
how can a bubby
call himself a king?
We in the CR
think you should come clean,
and admit your not a grandma
unless you’re a queen!January 23, 2011 12:05 am at 12:05 am #833822
I’m sorry, watermelon,
if you feel ignored,
your purple poem was cute;
it should win an award.
Your Shabbos rhyme was moving,
about a day with no tension;
if not first prize,
it gets honorable mention.January 23, 2011 12:46 am at 12:46 am #833823
Chayav,as a close relative of an alcoholic,and a crack addict–I consider myself experienced enough in life to tell you that you should seek the help you need–before it’s too late.
And it’s too serious to rhyme about.January 23, 2011 12:46 am at 12:46 am #833824
i may be a queen and not a king
but i needed a word that rhymed with thingJanuary 23, 2011 12:52 am at 12:52 am #833825
For those of you new to the CR,Chayav is usually posting about this subject.I am not reacting to one poem.January 23, 2011 2:39 am at 2:39 am #833826
watermelon i think u shud contact a therapist for your relative, im only an alcoholic not a crack addictJanuary 23, 2011 2:59 am at 2:59 am #833827
I welcome myself to the poetry thread,
a place where you dont need to much use your head.
Writing limericks is what gets people queasy,
but simple poetry – hah that’s too easy.
thanx smartcookie for your ultimate compliment,
for thinking that to daas yochid my name i had lent.
i’m a daas yochid also, an individual guy,
but i dont hire out my identity, thats the truth not a lie.
while i disperse,
these few lines of verse.
without getting in a fluster,
rest assured i’m not an imposter!
Shticky Guy is my only name,
and for other’s work i take no credit or blame.
i can continue with poetry for ever,
but authors of limericks are the ones really clever.
so come join us there with a shmeichel,
in the thread where you must really use your seichel.
if you see a limerick written like a tzedraiter,
you know its been written by the 80th moderator.
He says he cant write them though i’m sure he really can.
For he is no way your average man.
His comments and insights and sense of humor,
are fantastic and sharp and thats not just a rumor.
Oldies and newies come in and say hi,
dont leave it all to a few posters and shticky guy.
The good limerickers are blinky, eclipse, chayav and smartcookie,
but its great to get others, even a rookie.
Graduate to limericks although its not kal,
dont forsake us as did minyan gal.
So to prove that you do know how,
write one and post it, DO IT RIGHT NOW!January 23, 2011 3:56 am at 3:56 am #833828
Limericks are not all that dumb,
that is my rule of thumb.
Poems are fun,
for me, # 1,
But go there, you’ll see I have some.January 23, 2011 4:10 am at 4:10 am #833829
I don’t get what you just wrote
Were you replying to a different poster’s note?
Did you write to the wrong mentch?
Please explain & be gebentcht.January 23, 2011 4:32 am at 4:32 am #833830
the father is an alcoholic,
his son became a drug addict
because it’s so much fun to be the son of an alcoholic.
But Chazal say it’s no mitzvah to give someone advice
so don’t worry,I’m done.
I feel sorry for you,
and all those affected by what you do.January 23, 2011 5:41 am at 5:41 am #833831
maybe i will go see a shrink
but only after i have a good drink
he’ll tell me to change gear
ill wash his advice down with a cold beer
its true i may be in a tough spot
but ill forget abt it after a nice shotJanuary 23, 2011 5:43 am at 5:43 am #833832
Many people would give anything to be your age again.Just remember that…January 23, 2011 5:44 am at 5:44 am #833833
What makes you think chayav drinks?
I’m sure neither of us knows him, but I guess he’s probably kidding around.January 23, 2011 6:30 am at 6:30 am #833834
Between the Limerick threads and this one…
I haven’t the faintest idea who he is.January 23, 2011 6:42 am at 6:42 am #833835i am hereMember
After reading all these poems
in the room of all our homes
off the brink we may fall
and to the shrink we may callJanuary 23, 2011 7:40 am at 7:40 am #833836
i am here,are you The New Chayav?
(This CR made us ALL paranoid!”Trust No one”is the new mantra here!)January 23, 2011 10:38 am at 10:38 am #833837
My thanks for the compliment paid to me,
I paid smartcookie erroneously,
I quickly glanced thru it,
Then totally blew it,
Cos my thanks should have gone to Blinky.
But dont worry too much Smartcookie,
You’ve also been very kind to me,
With stuff I have read,
In the limerick thread,
Posting in things most complimentary.
Daas yochid’s not a name that I use,
Though I often agree with his views,
His comments are great,
And his humor’s first rate,
But his identity – I havent got clues!
Too many posters have a double,
But if you’re trying hard to burst my bubble,
Is a complete nonentity,
So if you’re trying I’ll save you the trouble.January 23, 2011 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #833838
Shticky- limericks? In the poetry thread? C’monJanuary 23, 2011 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm #833839
Smartcookie whats a limerick if not poetry? Anyway i posted another one there today also so stop complaining… :-]January 23, 2011 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #833840
watermelon just take a chill
if u really need just pop a pill
u dont know me from a whole in the wall
i may be short fat skinny or tall
so let me drink to my hearts content
but if u really want u can vent
hwvr i must say i approve of drinking
cuz it gets you through the day with minimal thinking
a shot a day keeps the doctor away
and keep in mind chayavinishlivisumayJanuary 23, 2011 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #833841
Shticky- don’t get me wrong! I love limericks!
But this thread was started for the limerick handicapped!January 23, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #833842
I agree with the “minimal thinking” part of your poem.When you are addressed respectfully,you respond with “minimal thinking”.January 23, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #833843
Let’s stop talking bout alcohol quick
The thought of it makes me sick
It’s becoming a very boring line
Every poem is about wine
Sorry, Chyavinish that I did object
But please, change the subject….
Let’s shmooze about nicer stuff
Sorry if I’m being a bit too tough 🙁January 23, 2011 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #833844
In the cr we talk abt a lot
But at a point the topics styart to rot
We talk abt shidduchim
And also zevugim
Teens at risk and many more
But the topics start to bore
So I talk abt drinking cuz it causes a stir
But they still don’t know if I’m a bubby or a mister
I do it just for fun
I don’t really drink rum
Its all a big joke
So fun you guys poke
I’m sorry u guys didn’t chop
So I guess ill stopJanuary 23, 2011 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #833845
Mazel tov,Chayav!L’chaim!January 23, 2011 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #833847
Watermelon slow down I was just kidding
I drink while standing and also when sitting
I drink rightside up and upside down
But drinking takes away everyones frowns
Lchaim to watermalon lerts have a stiff shot
and jhust be happy I’m drinking and not shmeffing potJanuary 23, 2011 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #833848
Watermelon I’m really surprised
Just cuz I stopped doesn’t mean u shudve compromised
If u think its wrong to have a shot or a beer
I wudnt expect a lchaim to hearJanuary 23, 2011 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #833849
To Life!!REAL life!!January 23, 2011 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #833850
Chayav, I thought
you had heeded the call,
to stop all your talking
It now seems to me, though,
that I was mistaken,
and that you’re a shikur,
you will still be fakin’.January 24, 2011 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #833851
Shticky guy its alright
The mistake you made
For thanking smartcookie
On the compliment i bade
I guess we are even
Not sure if you remember
on the limerick thread
I thought you were a new member
More on Howie:
Howie went to the gym
And did the treadmill
With weights in his hands
While running on uphillJanuary 24, 2011 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #833852
I’m glad that you remembered
to mention our friend Howard.
I thought you were afraid to,
but I guess you’re not a coward.January 24, 2011 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #833853eclipseMember
Tell Howie,Chayav’s counseling session is over,and he is next.January 24, 2011 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #833854
Howards pretty thin
Because of the lifestyle he chose
He can now wear a gartel
And his top button he can closeJanuary 24, 2011 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #833855
That’s something I didn’t know,
that Howie is chassidish,
I knew that he was Jewish;
but I thought that he was Swedish.
Reminds me of the Journeys song: (Abie Rotenberg)
But now they call him Chaim’l
and on Shabbos wears a shtreim’l
’cause their buried faith ignited
while flying on United
to the atheists’ convention in LA.January 24, 2011 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #833856
Hey i know that rhyme
It was sung by Abie
Chaim used to be Howie
but he changed his name-maybe?
I guess he can be litvish
lets change the gartel to a belt
Its almost the same thing
The only difference is in the geltJanuary 25, 2011 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #833857
There is something very special
We are all here for eachother,
Every day and night.
If you are Litvish or Chassidish,
Or wear a jacket or bekeshe,
If you speak English or Yiddish,
We are still areivim zeh lazeh.
White socks black socks,
Streimel or black hatter,
Curly peyos or none,
It doesn’t even matter.
Clean shaven or beard,
Who even cares?
Achdus keeps us together,
Throughout all the years!January 25, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #833858
It is, indeed, essential,
that we should all be together,
regardless of what kind of kippah,
knitted, velvet, or leather.
With one point I must take exception,
this point is “l’chol hadeyos”.
Although they may not need to curl,
a man may not cut off his peyos.
(I know you didn’t mean it that way.)January 26, 2011 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #833859
How’s our friend Howie,
I haven’t heard from him in awhile
Is he still chassidish
Or did he change his style
Did you speak to him
I hope he is Ok
I really miss him
Please let me know today!January 26, 2011 7:42 pm at 7:42 pm #833860
Howie is fine,
he’s just on vacation.
I won’t be in touch
for the duration.
Fret not ’bout his health;
he won’t come to harm.
He’s spending his time off
on a fat farm!January 26, 2011 7:52 pm at 7:52 pm #833861eclipseMember
