Bob's updated widget, newfangl'd
Thru some kind of glitch got entangl'd
Once quite enormous
Now so informous
Said, "Sorry for being embrangl'd."

The second coming was to be the last going
With everyone knowing there was no return
A rudderless ship
Ruled Captainless
As a ship of fools enjoyed the last sojourn

At last ... the missing verse from "A Salty Dog" by Procol Harum! laugh Worth listening to!

Your limerick makes as much sense! Actually, they did this at Cropredy about eight years ago. Brought tears to my eyes. But I love this version of it, done with a choir and the Danish National Concert Orchestra somewhere in Denmark a couple of years ago.

HONK -- HOODLUM

The hoodlum retired one fine day
And swore he'd keep temper at bay.
...But when traffic would pile up
...His ire would just rile up
With "Get the [HONK] outa my way !!"

From the flux there's a potion to spare us;
Elude time, if we hide in the arras.
If we eat apricot,
And avoid smoking pot,
The result is: no runs, hits, nor eras*.

*Runs, hits, errors are basic baseball statistics.

I don't know, Luke. I think Trombone is slipping a deeper meaning into his well-crafted Limerick that almost passed over my head.

Think about the alternate meanings of flux, evading time, era, and apricot. See? Something is being said here that is lost with only a cursory reading.

Now rethink his ominous final line..."no hits, no runs, and no more eras" eek.

I guess I'd better spend some time on it, thanks.
Now Peter, if you are being bad........
