Ode to Sam

26 02 2009

My brother’s birthday was yesterday.

I didn’t send him a card.

I didn’t send him an email.

I am a horrible sister.

Sorry, Sam.

To go along with this, I have written several horrible limericks in his honor. Enjoy!


I have this cool brother named Sam.

I missed his birthday so I am

                Writing bad limericks

                Without anything that sticks,

But I love him and that’s not a scam.


Yes. Terrible, I know. Here’s another:


Sam is my brother; I love him.

Sometimes he hit me on my chin.

                But that is okay,

                It was back in the day

When I would try just to annoy him.


Okay. Only one more.  And keep in mind that “no sham” is just like saying “no lie”, but it rhymes better. No sham.


I have this cool brother named Sam.

He once played drums in a rock band.

                Now he’s a dentist

                (Can I be your apprentice?)

And his wife is amazing—no sham.


Happy birthday, Sam! (Um, yesterday.)

Sam was my bud on Apache
I think he liked to play Yahtzee
With the grass under toes
we drank from the hose
And wished we were cool just like Fonzie.

Oooh…I want a limerick! Late limericks totally beat on-time card. You are the best sister ever.

Thank you for the limericks. You are the best sister I’ve ever had. I think would rather have some personalized limericks than a card anyways.

Thanks again for the birthday wishes!!

Thanks for your limerick, too, Amber. Good times drinking from the hose.

Any limericks written by the Anderson family SHOULD start with “Sam, Sam, the muscle man . . . ” since we heard a ton from dad about Sam growing up.
Amber, write a new one with “Sam, Sam, the muscle man” I can’t because I am not the gifted writer that you are.
And, happy birthday Sam, Sam, the muscle man!!
