In the palace worked Stephen the baker
who was also a silverware taker.
When his dishonesty
Was found by His Majesty
Stephen was sent off to his maker.

At tennis with busty Nanette,
Young Adelbert rushed to the net.
Though she'd flubbed every serve,
He still worked up the nerve
To tell her politely, "Nice set."

HARD - HARMONIZE

Wow! You have a nice set yourself, Mister Beck. I can't touch that but I can imitate:

A traveling young tennis player named Merve
Ran over a land mine before he could swerve.
Sad.
On the other hand
In Afghanistan
Set Point often comes before First Serve

Thanks. blush

I light cigarettes, and I burn two.
A-a-b-b-a I return to.
It's just hard to defuse
My old limerick muse.
Jenny Jenny, who can I turn to?

I suspect, Mister Beck, that you are your own muse. Get out of his way. He is good...very good.

Now, with the lazy thought that fun trumps form I post this near rhyme...



The best back-up bass in Bayou County was the late Johnny Mize
John doo-woped in a quartet - the Mississippi Mudflat Fives
John's last song, though, was sang alto,
Solo, allegro and irato.
While being eaten by a gator it is hard to harmonize.


HUMANIST HUMOROUS

My teacher done taught me fo' sure
That a "quartet" contains only four,
And yet now - 'sakes alive!-
The ol' Mudflats have five!
Seems it's possible there could be more!

frown Humph! Who made the rule that a quartet can only have four members? I tell you, Beck, the language has gone to hell since the White Eyes came to this land. Before Desoto you had entire tribes of Choctaws and Chickasaws singing in a quartet. Even today on tour "The Five Blind Boys of Mississippi" might have as many as eight Blind Boys singing and spliting the pot.

Seems fair.

A man by the surname of Reams
Was describing the girl of his dreams:
"She's tall and she's fair,
With long golden hair,
And busting apart at the seams."
