A poor little dog stood alone,
In the picturesque town of Colon
He used his last dollar
To buy a new collar
Then walked off to look for a bone.

(yeah, yeah, I know...)

I know I'm late, but I'll post it anyway.

In the city of Cork (or vicinity),
In the garden of Kevin MacGinity,
Deep in bugloss and moss
He caught his wife and her boss,
And bulldozed them both to Infinity.

I had made this limerick for bugloss and bulldoze then I chose to replace it with a sentence. Instead of letting go waste, I'll post it.

To make a pretty avatar.
CB added a bugloss flower
But then when I chose
To upload a bulldoze
Er- it was too heavy by far.
(Crazy)

A nursemaid who had nyctalopia,
Thought she'd discovered utopia.
It was sunny and bright
In Alaska at night...
But the family was from Ethiopia.

Good one, Modscop. Welcome to the funny farm.

There once was a fellow from Brest
Who found himself wanting for prest.
He failed to prevail
'Pon the bar for free ale,
So his drinking mate paid for the rest.

Good word! I had to go to the BIG dictionary for mosso. smile

What is the motive to play
In any particular way
Forte and mosso
or quiet and so slow?
Do what the composer did say!

Bob studied the oak and the beech.
The botanical members of each
He'd label corollate,
Or a cormel, or globate.
He grew bulbous with flowery speech!

The man on the stage
of undefined age
looked strangely distracted
The way that he acted
would not get him to division: Front Page

A fellow on South Esplanade
Developed a habit most odd:
After meals farinaceous
He'd become quite loquacious
And deliver a fanfaronade
