Tired mouse in need of clemency
Said, "You use the net with such frequency,
You could use a stick
Yet you prefer to click
It's really the height of indecency."

U-oh! My dictionary is not with me.
Can I just choose a random pair?

The two bikers laughed from their tandem:
"We take all our rides quite at random.
When we hit the road,
Though the world should explode,
Our trips all work out as we planned 'em."

Very nice peter. Could be used as an anthem for all highway enthusiasts. Much better than this line, "bulandiyon ke musafir ko kaun samjhaaye ke aage raah mein dhalaan aati hai"
Losely translated : who is to tell the one who is bent on climbing heights that up ahead is a valley.

Thanks, Avy. Ha!: "bulandiyon…" (or the translation) might work as a billboard, but as a standard traffic sign a driver would never have enough time to read it. Well, the same might be said of a limerick. Not sure about which is more singable.

We play a limerick game on another forum I frequent, but we have to make up the next line only...............we get results like this................

Riding a horse gave Camilla much pleasure
she had spasm's of joy as it tickled her treasure
Which even Charles had yet to discover its location
He even tried appealing to the nation
and using his riding crop and spurs for good measure.

Curious game slowhand. Is the last line the one that is
changed, or can it be any?
