Since Helen was seeking our original efforts. What about some favorite but unfamiliar non-originals?

A quiz limerick (spoiler answer below in white), copyright John Miller Talco TX 75487:

In English there's three kinds of "t*"
Which y* CAN'T spell, I'll bet you a br*,
In lines like the first.
Y*'ll just work up a thirst
Y* t* 'll find this tr* 'fore you're thr*

In English there's three kinds of "two" / Which you CAN'T spell, I'll bet you a brew, / In lines like the first. / You'll just work up a thirst / You too'll find this true 'fore you're through

And, conversely,
"Hough oughten oughsetting it is tough knough tough much."

or perhaps
"Though the tough cough and hiccough plough him through."
