Even knowing we are all in the same boat does not seem to help.

The government's eyeing my wealth.
They're trying to take it by stealth:
My light bulbs, my car,
My Cuban cigar,
And now they've come after my health!

This has degenerated into a seldom-visited limerick thread, but I will be glad to furnish two headwords:

RISKY - ROADBED

I must have been out of my head
As I danced to the Grateful Dead:
The mushroom was risky
But I felt so frisky…
And woke up face down in a roadbed.

I like it! My wife would love it, Dead-Head that she is (was?)

They went to the Polk County fair
And felt themselves quite debonair.
They ate a great deal
Of a cheap, greasy meal,
Then, on the rides, puked in midair.

GUANO - GUERNSEY

When dressing your crops with fertilizer,
Bat guano's a great appetizer,
But easier to find,
It comes from behind,
And the your Guernsey cow is none the wiser!

What the heck is THAT? I'm pretty good at limericks, but that's a serious challenge!

The "thunderclap of Adam and Eve,
When from the garden they had to leave."
It made us all baffle,
We could only haffle!
Twosleepy's smile I hope I've achieved!
