A poem is a literary art form that brings forth a feeling closest to the emotional response brought by the sight of a beautiful picture. With a play of words you can create a funny poem that's sure to make the reader laugh or even go as far as shedding tears of joy. Such a poem would make a great gift for grandparents on their birthdays or on grandparents' day. You can even write a poem for your grandparents whenever you think of them or visit them. Giving your grandparents a funny poem is sure to bring a smile on their faces every time they remember or read it. If you write poems for your grandparents often, you can write them using a calligraphy pen on thick paper and fold it such that it can be kept along tables, windows, etc. This will help them remember the sweet words you have for them at times when they feel blue or nostalgic. For elderly people, there's no greater feeling than being loved by their children and grandchildren. Funny poems can be as touching as serious or sentimental poems. One of the most important characteristics of poetry is its ability to make the reader feel connected to the writer's emotions. It serves as a medium to convey thoughts and expressions using similar syllables to create a rhythmic effect.
Funny Grandparents Day Poems
It's Grandparents' Day and we're here to say,
"We love our Grandparents in a major way."
So sit right down and take a seat,
And we'll put on a show that can't bebeat!
Some Grandparents are skinny. Some eat a lot.
Some are funny. Some are not.
Some short, some tall, some big, some small.
It doesn't matter. We love them all.

In the dim and distant past,
When life's tempo wasn't fast,
Grandma used to rock and knit,
Crochet, tat and baby sit.
When we were in a jam,
We could always count on gram.
In the age of gracious living,
Grandma's life was one of giving.
Now grandma's at the gym,
Exercising to keep slim,
She's off touring with the bunch,
Or taking all her friends to lunch.
Driving north to fish or hike,
Taking time to ride her bike.
Nothing seems to block or stop her,
Now that grandma's off her rocker.

Grandma woke one morning, to find she couldn't see,
Wondered where her glasses went, wondered where they'd be.
She put them on the dresser, in the late hours of the night,
Tended to forget things, she'd not turned on the light.
She looked under the poster bed, and in her big black shoes,
She looked under the newspaper - Pop had read the news.
She searched inside the house, morning, noon and night,
But couldn't find her glasses, they'd gone far out of sight.
Pop had left to go to work, he wasn't there to ask,
Grandma really needed glasses, to finish all her tasks.
She vacuumed, cleaned, and dusted, but squinted all day long,
And as she worked she sang a tune, that was her fav'rite song.
She tried to make a tea cake, but couldn't see the butter,
Ended up with shoe polish, oh boy, there's such a clutter.
She even tried to wash her wig, but washed the cat instead,
Dried it in the toaster and put it on her bed.
Pop came home from work that night, and opened the front door,
Gran was sitting quietly, her finger was so sore.
She'd jammed it in the oven, while cooking up his tea,
Then tripped over the pussy cat, when it got off her knee.
Pop said "What's the matter dear - something I can do?"
"Find my glasses dear" she said, "so I can find my shoe".
Pop walked over to her chair, "Silly Dear" he said,
And pointed to her glasses, sitting on her head.

Computer Swallowed Grandma
The computer swallowed grandma,
Yes, honestly it's true.
She pressed "control" and "enter"
And disappeared from view.
It devoured her completely,
The thought just makes me squirm.
She must have caught a virus
Or been eaten by a worm.
I've searched through the recycle bin
and files of every kind:
I've even used the Internet,
but nothing did I find.
In desperation, I asked Jeeves
My searches to refine.
The reply from him was negative,
Not a thing was found "online".
So, if inside your "Inbox",
My Grandma you should see,
Please "Copy", "Scan" and "Paste" her
And send her back to me!
You could copy these poems or write one on your own. You could add anecdotes in your own poems that would add a personal touch to them. Your grandparents would be especially happy if they knew that you wrote them by yourself.
