Lee's neighbor, his life-long friend, Sydney,
Asked Lee if he might have Lee's kidney.
"I hope you don't mind, Lee,"
Sid asked him most kindly.
Lee answered, "F**k you! Are you kiddin' me?"

Santa returned at daybreak
Having one hell of a headache
The victim of a deadfall trap,
Sarcasm and vitriol on tap.
Oh, for Christ's sake, I need a nap!


Spotty rhythm and rhyme...the limerick is no gift of mine. Guess I'll have to imbibe with a little wine.

(With apologies to crash:)

With its spotty rythmn and rhyme,
The limerick's no friend of mine:
"There once was a man...?"
Shoot, I don't give a damn.
I'll just sit here and drink me some wine.

I think of the form as psycho-haiku: The sky's the limit, but so is the meter and rhyme.

I'd love to play, but people ... limericks?

Oh, for the creativity of my misspent youth early middle age.

We can move away from limericks if you wish...I can do either (although limericks take longer to construct...!)
