I remember the "first to see the sun rise" claims back
at the turn of the century/millenia. I believe Kiribati,
the Pacific Island nation, won the claim, tho' I'm not sure.

It's futile to try to annoint
One spot as Earth's easternmost point.
It's a big sphere, by golly,
And our "date" line's just folly;
So let's not get our nose out of joint.

Its an integral part of our way
us humans must plot every day
to keep our own history
from being a mystery
let the world keep spinning I say

INCESTUOUS - INCOGNITO

The intercourse of the Sun and the Earth is not incestuous
Whether or not the Sun encircles us is decided just by us
An ancient racetrack builder even yet incognito
Drew a line across a track and presto we got "go"
There are lines for mathematicians and lines for the rest of us.

IRONCLAD - ISLAMIC

Our generals are now hurling iron,
Clad in battle garb - 't'swhat they get high on.
Sure, the war's not atomic,
And the foe is Islamic,
But for now it's what they must get by on.

[...not to be mistaken for my actual sentiments, but it makes a pretty darned ok rhyme. I would much rather have been tasked with creating a limerick for these two:]

HOOKED - HOPPER

Bravo General Beck! A tinge of poetic truth is beyond a passel of politics. Four Stars!

Tenni-bopper Hopper was a hooker who hooked
A hard-working humper her card was always booked
What...was she a tail shaker?
No...she was a clothing maker
Who carded her wool and hooked her hooks, and you've been rooked. smile

PAWN - PEACH

Ol' Bob and his gal, Missy Peach
Felt the good life was not out of reach.
To get there they'd pawn
Everything but the lawn,
Which they'd gaze upon, quite nouveau riche.

LOX - LUDDITE

Excellent. Another good one, mate. Change "gaze" to "graze" and Ole Bob and Missy Peach become two very happy sheep. See yall in a week or so. smile

I'm saving the Vermonters; I'll be gone a right smart spell
Lox and Bagel luddites all, they're going straight to Hell
I didn't go to Haiti
I figure it can waitee
But I'm saving the Vermonters - I'll teach them to rebel.

Off color, but not coarsely vulgar:

Click to reveal..
Young Sally seemed prudent and fickle
'Til a Jewish guy gave her a tickle.
Now, mind you, 'twas Sally
Said, "Don't dilly dally!
I'd like to try kosher dill pickle!"
