Okay....this one is PG....

In a small Kansas town known as Lebo
Churning ice cream within a gazebo
He said with elation
"It's quite near gelation"
And posted an invite on Bebo.

When Stanley delivered his load,
Nothing was safe on the road.
He ran down some yokel,
Two deer and a local,
A tortoise, three cats, and a toad.

STICH - STIGMATIZE

That's a good one Beck! cool

Ask about accent, meter or stich,
For it's true - we know which is which.
Please don't stigmatize
Limericks as unwise.
We just fill our "poems" full of kitsch.

STREAM - STRETCH

Pity Gomez, the unlucky wretch
Far at sea in his undersized ketch.
He woke from a dream
And fell into the stream.
One should wake up, look well, and then stretch.

FLUENCY - FLUSH

A wannabee linguist named Bush
Studied accents in far Hindu Kush,
But repetitive truancy
Affected his fluency,
Causing acres of fakirs to flush.

HEATH - HEAVY

Why, thank you, B. I'll be off the site for a few days, but will return on Thursday.

The Hermit on the heath by the side of the road
asked me please would I carry his load.
I said: "No, but I will
ask the Fool on the hill;
it's too heavy". Then he croaked like a toad.

Out of words poets may craft a pun:
"Once in Baghdad, while buying a bun,
Heard a BANG! from a van.
Grabbed a rack, and I ran."
Why, I did it here! Son-of-a-gun.

GHOST - GIFT

A fellow with spirits to lift
Sought a medium, born with the gift.
Her fee was the most,
Yet she brought him no ghost:
She just "maybe'd" and "sorry'd" and "if'd."

I think that'll be my last for now - it's been fun!
