In the palace worked Stephen the baker
who was also a silverware taker.
When his dishonesty
Was found by His Majesty
Stephen was sent off to his maker.


SERVE - SET

At tennis with busty Nanette,
Young Adelbert rushed to the net.
Though she'd flubbed every serve,
He still worked up the nerve
To tell her politely, "Nice set."

HARD - HARMONIZE

Wow! You have a nice set yourself, Mister Beck. I can't touch that but I can imitate:

A traveling young tennis player named Merve
Ran over a land mine before he could swerve.
Sad.
On the other hand
In Afghanistan
Set Point often comes before First Serve

Thanks. blush

I light cigarettes, and I burn two.
A-a-b-b-a I return to.
It's just hard to defuse
My old limerick muse.
Jenny Jenny, who can I turn to?

I suspect, Mister Beck, that you are your own muse. Get out of his way. He is good...very good.

Now, with the lazy thought that fun trumps form I post this near rhyme...



The best back-up bass in Bayou County was the late Johnny Mize
John doo-woped in a quartet - the Mississippi Mudflat Fives
John's last song, though, was sang alto,
Solo, allegro and irato.
While being eaten by a gator it is hard to harmonize.


HUMANIST HUMOROUS

My teacher done taught me fo' sure
That a "quartet" contains only four,
And yet now - 'sakes alive!-
The ol' Mudflats have five!
Seems it's possible there could be more!

frown Humph! Who made the rule that a quartet can only have four members? I tell you, Beck, the language has gone to hell since the White Eyes came to this land. Before Desoto you had entire tribes of Choctaws and Chickasaws singing in a quartet. Even today on tour "The Five Blind Boys of Mississippi" might have as many as eight Blind Boys singing and spliting the pot.

Seems fair.

A man by the surname of Reams
Was describing the girl of his dreams:
"She's tall and she's fair,
With long golden hair,
And busting apart at the seams."
