*Warning: Shameless Plug Time! My first (and, at least right now, only) published book of poetry, Mugging for the Camera, (a full length collection of quirky, humorous works) included a poem of the same name, which I wrote especially for the frontispiece of the book. Cool, right? (Okay, so buy the book! Available from Virtualbookworm.com, Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble online, etc.) End of shameless plug.*
Anyway, both were fun and challenging prompts. The first poem borrows a bit from Norse mythology. The second...well, you'll see. And by the way, for the second poem, the poetic form is called Hymnal Measure.
Beneath my old roots

In the course of human events,
we try to find the wit.
At times that sway shows little sense;
still humor rocks. Get it?!
Yes, versifying pun or quip
seems to be most clever.
Life’s just a jolly comic strip
so… let’s laugh it up…whatever.
