Two Line Tuesday: Ogden Nash






Matt Dowdeswell


I would live all my life in nonchalance and insouciance,
Were it not for making a living, which is rather a nouciance.

– Ogden Nash



Kate O'Neil has challenged us to write a poem with words at play: malapropisms, ambiguities, unintended meanings, puns, cliches, etc., so I thought Ogden Nash would be a good choice to get the party started! Read Kate's reader spotlight HERE and add your poem to this month's padlet.

  3. Love Ogden Nash! Don't think I could live entirely by insouciance, though "making a living" sure is a "nouciance"– but I sure love that pic of bliss–thanks for the smile! :)
