ROCOCO - ROBIN

An ornithologist from Acapulco
Built a fancy birdhouse a la rococo
But when the red red robin
Didn't come bob bob bobbin
Hobos moved in filling it a la in toto

You've beat me to it, JJ! I had nearly got the following when you pipped me to the post!

When the postman is lobbin'
Cards with snowflake and robin
Through my door, I go loco!
They're all so roccoco
In style - I start sobbin'.

So - here goes:

A grabbing old Hun named Attila
Whose manners were like a goriila
'Til he visited spain
Where the locals did train
Him to savour a fine Manzanilla.

ROPEY - ROSETTE

The artiste tried to make a rosette
Out of tar, acetone, and fishnet.
The results were so ropey
He gave up all hope. He
Now tests razor blades for Gillette.

Too sad for a mere Limerick - so you get a eight line versicle.

The Faerie Queen appears on stage
With wand and sequins and a page!
Her elbows creak, her knees both ache
Hair and bosom, both are fake.
People leave when curtain falls;
Just empty wrappers in the stalls.
With make up off and dressed in beige,
Exeunt: A Woman of - a Certain Age.

LIBERAL - LICH (or LYCH) [as in lych gate]
