Cheap airplane flights draw much complaint;
They'd test the sangfroid of a saint.
The conduct is rowdy,
The crew girls are dowdy,
And adequate legroom there ain't.

The only thing you forgot in this most excellent
limerick are the screaming babies.

Dare to invite a healthy inversion,
Supplanting love for hate or pervsion,
And let goodness un-mask us
Like Paul in Damascus
And behold the world after conversion.

...but don't mess with Mister In-between. smile
Good one, Alex.
But is it not better to accentuate objective reality.

Now our Nation knows nought but inversion
Now hate is love and love is subversion
Our Atheists invite
Our Christians to fight
Freedom turned left for a four year excursion

The codeword 'Gestalt' (meaning 'form')
Was used for a time as the norm
By a group of free-thinkers
And liberal drinkers
Whose homes the Gestapo would storm.

My dear, 'radium' does rhyme with 'stadium'
And they both rhyme quite well with 'palladium'
But I'm afraid I must clear
Up the stale atmosphere
And point out that they slant rhyme with 'atrium'

Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her father forty whacks
When she saw what she had done she gave her mother forty-one


Mister Borden you had a lovely daughter
You shoulda treated her better, yes you oughter
She is not dimwitted
What she is, is acquitted
Liz stole your severed head; no head no manslaughter cool

It's Alex Williams fault, Candy. smile

"Daughter" brought to mind a silly English song of the sixties, "Misses Brown you've got a lovely daughter" coupled with a stupid street chant...

"For a dollar I'll holler
for a half I'll laugh,
and for a quarter
I'll do what I oughter"
.

No, "no head no manslaughter" is not a point of law. In fact the heads of Andrew Jackson Borden and his wife were cut off during an autopsy because of evidence that the entire family was poisoned before the murdering. After the trial the two heads came up missing and have never been found. frown
