Funny Graduation Poems

I like the first  of the funny graduation poems on this page because it has what a friend of mine calls "an economy of words." Each line has four or five syllables . . . and one word. Now that's economical! Of course, I had to give it a long wordy title, just to balance the thing out.

Funny Graduation Poem #2

The following poem addresses the fact that now that all the time and work has been invested in schooling, the graduate gets a piece of paper. And a pointy hat. After that, you have to find a job and get to work. Who knew?

Funny Graduation Poems by Denise Rodgers on ClassroomPoems.com.

Pointy Hat
It’s time to wear
That pointy hat
With four sides and a tassel,
To celebrate your years of work
Of study
And of hassle.
Now you are a graduate,
So please don't try to shirk.
You may not have to study now, but soon,
You’ll have to work!

Funny Graduation Poem #3

The next graduation rhyme has a lot of internal rhyme -- meaning that the rhyming words are within the line, not just at the end. This is a lot of fun to write (when it's going well).

Funny Graduation Poems by Denise Rodgers on ClassroomPoems.com.

A Senior
You’ve studied.
You’ve buddied.
You’ve partied.
Such fun!

Been tested,
And rested,
Contested,
And won.

You’ve worried
And hurried
To go take
A test.

But now you’re
A senior,
So give it
A rest.

Funny Graduation Poem #4

Okay, in the first version of this poem it was a little more naughty than this version. (Does the word, "naughty" even have any relevance today?) The point is that the so-called naughtiness is what makes this poem funny. So read and enjoy. 

Funny Graduation Poems by Denise Rodgers on ClassroomPoems.com.

They Say
They say you’re walking down the aisle
To get your new degree.
The moment that you grab it,
You’ll be off the stage
And free.
Free to start your life anew
Unfettered by your classes.
And free to get
A brand new job
And kiss some
Brand new assets.

Congratulations!
