I expected to see my deathbed in a decade or so, but if I keep up with limmericking I may count some good years off.

Attempts at divestiture failed;
Reporters and critics assailed;
With my business ka-blooey
I drowned in Drambuie,
And off to Australia I sailed.

@ coffeebean: TERRIFIC!

A fellow's genetic condition
Left him seeking a real transposition.
His gender unraveled,
So to Sweden he traveled,
And her life has now come to fruition.

Thanks, Beck! Fun addition to the game!

Attending a nuclear symposium
Tom learned all the facts of dysprosium;
With a manual dog-eared
for a bomb – it is feared –
He has gone off to begin composing ‘em.

It happened on the way to symposium,
From the sky fell a chunk of dysprosium!
And being big-eared,
It did as he feared,
And richocheted off his big nosium!

*sigh* please forgive the amateurishness...

We're becoming inspired! Those two were great - I wouldn't want to have to choose between them, and, thankfully, I don't.

@ twosleepy: I'm in north Florida, and this week I saw your avatars migrating through, so spring is on the way. The robins passed through two to three weeks ago in great flocks.

Not soon enough for me. I have cabin fever as do so many folks
here. Enough is enough of snow and ice. So glad the robins
are coming.

He thnored in the road, open-mouthed.
He had fallen there, dreadfully thouthed.
The empty of booze
Glithened there in the ooze,
While ith contenth inthide him were houthed.

Hi, Luke. Nice to know you're out there. Keep your chin up - you've been through winter before.

There once was a lady from Mayence
Who was cursed with backwards clairvoyance
She sang, "Amore Mio"
In Ci'dad Trujillo
Two days late, to the locals' annoyance.

(see my earlier post for the next two words...)
