My verses are mostly quite simple
Could be read by a nun in a wimple
...But if merry sing-song
...Can just take you along
It might bring out a smile -- and a dimple!

Oops. It's not SIMPLE, it's SINGLE.

OK, let's try

My verses are sing-song but simple,
Could be read by a nun in a wimple.
...But if one single song
...Makes you sing right along
We'll be graced by your smile and a dimple!

A hundred hands clapping, Doc, you have quick feet.
A great rhyme number one, a great rhyme number two.
You are fast, you are good. smile

LABOUR - KEEPER

The British are the keepers of things oceanic
Their labour to hoard artifacts is pedantic
But losers weepers finder keepers
We need that boat for movie peepers
But don't panic
The Titanic still rests beneath the Atlantic

I find it is too tough a thing.
To hang the words well on a string.
Then I hit a strike,
Before I say, "yike".
Like wofa's my song starts to sing.

Doodle - Dead

Yankee Doodle went to town
To get himself some bread
He stuck up a store in Baltimore
So they shot Yankee Doodle dead

LOL - I loved that one, jj!

To learn a new tongue is a must-a
To your CV it adds quite a lustre
Afrikaans to Zulu
Will gives you a tool to
Speak also just like Zarathustra!

Clever, Rhubarb, you must-a been inspired.
99 hands a-clapping and one hand a-rapping. laugh

MARRIAGEABLE - MARTYR

"If you can't do good do as little bad as you can"
"Lawyers...their job is to disguise matters and barter"
"Disguise our bondage as you will
'Tis woman. woman, rules us still"
---- Name this marriageable priest and merry martyr. smile

Nice one! Is it Donne? (It certainly isn't half-baked!)

The geosynclines, or linear trough
If deformed, compressed enough
A volcano may form.
Geologically a norm;
But what the heck is a Geck?
