A twisted old cowboy named Campbell
Walked his trusty mare into the bramble.
They did something strange
In their home on the range.
But no details: I'm starting to ramble.

Bernard had an attitude horrible:
His teachers had pegged him incorrigible;
But the girls that he petted
Were thoroughly indebted
For his kiss and caress so explorable.

He's been up the Mekong and back,
fought off a guerrilla attack,
now in the suburb
he fights with the cowherb
that grows in a small sidewalk crack.

Rinaldo had fallen in love
With the woman who lived up above
He climbed up, took a peek,
Slipped and fell with a shriek
And discovered the force of her shove.


CARRIER PIGEON -- CARTOUCHE

Thanks CB, I couldn't think of anything for those two words that would be rated with fewer than three X's.

Karl primped his Mercedes so much he
Was known for it throughout the duchy.
When a carrier pigeon
Befouled it a smidgen,
He declared it a tragic cartouche.

And, for the more traditional-minded among us...

As Abdul ate baba ganoush
In Luxor beside a cartouche,
A carrier pigeon
Befouled him a smidgen,
Its turds whizzing by with a whoosh.

RUMMER - RUNDLE

This is not an entry in the ongoing limerickage taking place on this thread. I just couldn't resist...

I suspect this may trigger some howls.
(Know my tongue is set firm in both jowls.)
Some think it uplifting
To talk about "shifting,"
But they really are moving their vowels.

We all sing the way we are be(a)cked
And may all think our singing's perfèct
To some the *taste lacks
To seek needles in haystacks
And prefer shifting sounds for their act.

*or time

Up a ladder went poor Steve Mundle
With shingles, but he missed a rundle.
His death was a bummer,
To him raise a rummer...
and next time use a lift for a bundle.


LEVERAGE - LIBEL

While seducing the comely Miss Sevridge,
Old Willy applied lusty leverage.
She withstood all his libel
And oaths on the Bible,
But succumbed to a drug in her beverage.

PASTORAL - PATENT

Alone in a meadow pastoral,
Don sat with Monica Morrell.
His motives were patent;
Her lust was not latent
And they got down to matters immoral.


TALKATIVE - TAMPER
