Sneaky Burton would slink 'round the block
Busting into homes: he'd never knock.
He's a not-to-be bloomer:
A real social tumor.
Now he's on the wrong side of the lock.

On a slow ship of the desert named Clyde
Ahab the Arab did leisurely ride
He put Clyde into second gear
Clyde said Ahab, now looka here
I'm a shiftless model let go of my ear!

A lycanthrope one night in June
was seen in his favorite saloon
Where he licked up some salt,
Ate a lime, drank some malt,
and proceeded to howl at the moon.

Alabama has an electric chair nicknamed Yo' Yellow Mammy
And Elmo was a Democrat who stole food stamps from his granny
"Now here's a happy thought" He said "one I do propine
Serve me up my ten thousand volts one volt at a time"

[But Elmo wasn't prorated because just like this rhyme
An execution and a poem should end in the shortest time]

Magda began with astrolatry,
like her mother, and added geolatry;
This talent gentilitial
She found monetarily beneficial
And offered her readings “two for idolatry”.

I didn't laugh when I read "two for adolatry"; I smiled.
I smiled for five minutes...I'm still smiling. smile

Whether Congolese, German, Caucasian,
African, Spanish, or Asian,
Every soul should aspire
to live life on fire,
As though we were, each of us, Cajun!

... et laissez les bon temps roullez!

Rodriguez thought he had no enemy;
He considered himself quite a prodigy;
Twas a blow to his ego
to hear “Adios, Amigo!”
As they hanged and defaced his effigy.
