Rave For Dave, Part Deux

Hello, dear readers! Kerbey here. Today we continue our Rave for Dave Campaign, as we sing the praises of our fearless Blog of Funny Names leader. In yesterday’s post, Fannie updated us on his health issue, and ways we can contribute to his GoFundMe page. With our support, we can help him win this battle! To add to that support, I offer my silly and sincere ode to brave Dave.

Ode To Dave, Who Is Strong Like Bull


What can I say of my pal, Dave?

His friendship is a gift

He’s a glass half-full, super middleweight guy

With more enthusiasm than Taylor Swift


He’s hope and resilience, endurance and charm

Charisma and kindness, his nature

Ever-the-encourager, boxing-phile

Lover of nomenclature


So maybe he favors red hoodies

Maybe he’s donned zebra pants

Could he have worn a “Merry “Chrithmith” sweater?

I think there’s a pretty good chance


He’s taller than average, and grows a patchy beard

Like Keanu Reeves in Movember

And as far as becoming a brain doctor

He’s still a running contender


But into each life, some rain must fall

And fall, it did, this year

A veritable deluge of thunderstorms

But thunderstorms always clear


And though this one is a challenge

I know Dave isn’t a quitter

He’s got a lot of fight in him

He won’t become jaded or bitter


Med school, residency–here he comes

He’ll pay his medical dues

Feasting on breakfast supreme burritos

And tossing back Rock Bottom brews


So, Dave, I say, “Look to the future!”

When you ride in a self-driving Matrix

Because you believe in foreign cars

Superstars and organic food served by a friendly waitress


You’ll exceed a mere 22 push-ups!

And you’ll do it in pure Dave fashion

And become an amazing neurologist

With wisdom, and strength, and compassion


We’re all rooting for you, Golden State boy

This trial will become inspiration

And I’ll think of you fondly each time I sit down

To watch “Scrubs” in syndication.


(Now get your game face on!)

    “. . . we can only guess what’s coming next . . .”

    “. . . the air is electric as the BoFN kicks off its collective cheer for THE MAN . . .”

    Kerbey and Diddy, you make me so happy! Brings me back to the witty repartee of yesteryear. Nothing wrong with nerdy hipster glasses.

  3. Liz says:

    What lovely poetry you write, Kerbey 😀 Diddy has already raised the bar for comments, so I’m going to leave it at “what he said.” This is solid! U due no ur fax abawt Dayve.

    This was truly delightful! I forgot to thank you here yesterday (though I definitely thanked you over on FB, and showed you my zebra pants!). I showed this to my roommate (my mom) and she thought it was so beautiful. Also, for someone who I haven’t (yet!) met in person, you know a remarkable amount of Dave facts. Kudos for that!

    This was such a delightful post! I love it.

    It also must be the first time Dave has been compared to Taylor Swift. Certainly the first time he came out ahead in the comparison 😉

    I can’t compete with all of the witty banter that’s already lit up this comments section, but can I just tell you, Kerbey my darling, how much I love that you peaced out your poem with a “Scrubs” reference?! SO MUCH I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
