MAJESTY - TRAGEDY

Good young Bob was a majesty maker
Gave Bob my wife and he said he'd take her
But my brief majesty
Became Bob's tragedy
She shot Bob and married the undertaker

At the breakfast buffet at the Hilton,
When a scholarly fellow named Milton
Said, "I don't mind reading
Amidst all this feeding,"
His wife replied, "Just pass the Stilton."

PERSEVERE - PERSONIFY

I am (they say) a low down no account rake
They say (and I am) a crook, phoney and fake
But hey, if I persevere
And stop drinking beer
In a year or two I could personify a snake
I say

She decided she had to reduce
For the hot guy she wished to seduce,
But she couldn't escape
The dreaded red tape,
So she said, "Pass the chops - what's the use?"

INHALER - INJUSTICE


In 1466 the Devil was Vlad the Impaler
In 1966 the Devil was the Hippy Inhaler
Today injustice abounds
While the Devil stands around
Our Liberator has become our Doom-a-rater

Harmonica baby was happy
As long as he played with his pappy.
But when Mom interfered,
His sound--off it veered!
And from then on his music was crappy.

RESTRICT--RETRO-ROCKET

Why do dictionaries hyphenate "retro-rocket"?
"retro" is an adjective, a rocket is a rocket.
If only Webster would restrict
Hyphenated words, I predict
I could fit their dictionary into my shirt pocket.

It's decidedly more than ironic
That people think diamonds plutonic.
They're bright carbon to my sense,
And such poetic license
Ascribes to them shadows demonic.
