It's a tragic disorder. I can only communicate my most personal thoughts in the form of limericks

Cool!beck123

Where moff's made for the coquette
a mofette's a quite a different sujet
a noxious emanation
you don't want to behold
where vulcanos are subject to molt
(immerick)

HERMETIC - HAVOC

The Twinkie (a food so pathetic
It's sealed in a package hermetic)
Is OK for those
Who control their glucose,
But wreaks havoc on those diabetic.

Come on, boys and girls, wake up out there! It's been 12 hours.

There once was a woman named Miriam
Who desired her own vast imperium.
When denied her own sceptre
By the husband who kept her,
She implored, "Why not me?" in delerium

SLOP - SLUG

The lowly and crawly old Slug,
Envies Snail with a fire and hearthrug,
Tho' it has no abode,
To take on the road,
It can slip through the slop and be smug.

DUMB AGUE - DUNNE
(I used a "real" dictionary, AH, random opening...)
(Limericks not my strong suit, but I do enjoy them.)

I'm glad you enjoy them, and you seem to have done a good job with this one. I'm using an old F&W Standard College, with a 1974 copyright. (If the head words are too similar, I randomly open it a second time.)

The dumb ague had gripped Mrs. Bunn
To the fright of her freckled-faced son.
When she asked, "Junior, truly,
Have you called Mr. Dooley?"
He replied (as you've guessed,) "Fin'ly Dunne"

'Sorry' said the woman from the pharmacy,
'To be the unwitting cause of your lunacy,
I meant to purify,
And not to ignify,
Your liver; please pardon my idiocy.'

OUTDOOR OUTPUT

Thumbs up for your limericks B. You write well. I found this hard work.

It is hard work!

I squander far too much of my time composing them.

An outdoor designer named Deeger
Met up with two females, both eager.
Though his output was fine
With the first one in line,
His second was terribly meager.

THOROUGH - THREADFIN
