I have to admit my mind was wandering (it often does that)
but I read both yours, AC, followed by Trom's, limericks
and I cannot print the vision I had by one following the
other. Thanks for the laugh, odd tho' it was.

START – STATUTE

I have taken the liberty of pluralizing 'statute':

Some statutes have language that rambles,
And some start with lengthy preambles;
No wonder some students
Compare jurisprudence
To wading through thickets of brambles.

Please take all the liberties you like, as far as I'm concerned. The results are stupendous.

She was coy when they met in the foyer;
Apparently she's his employer.
He seemed nervous and fussy –
It was clear that the hussy
Intended to have him enjoy her.

Our church held a fete in July;
The weather was sunny and dry.
A fiddling pair
Played an old English air –
They were crap, but they gave it a try.

At the time of the old city's founding,
The builders used stones without rounding;
They progressed to smooth rocks,
Then fine ashlar blocks –
Their rate of advance was astounding.

RISK – ROISTER

She escaped o'er the wall of the cloister
Not to binge and to orgy and roister.
No, she took such a risk
To acquire a disc
From a band called the Cult of Blue Φyster.

There's news of crop circles again!
Their means of production is plain:
Contraptions on strings
Gouge out perfect rings
While their wielders advance through the grain.

Seems the dukedom had problems domestic,
That the palace had rodents majestic.
The solution? The duke
Telephoned to some kook
In the listings: Ajax Anapestic.

Thank you. Just had foundation work done on the house, and now we have a small creature abiding in the kitchen.
