There was a young traveller from Kent
Whose head was on backwards and bent
You need varification?
On a homebound vacation
He vent-ed this lament
"Each step I went the further was Kent."

Souds like an excellent session, Peter - I would have lived to be there, as I don't often get the chance to listen to folk music , these days.
And my thanks for the glass-raising!

My rowboat's my major obsession
I row to release my aggression.
As I tug on that oar,
The seat makes my butt sore;
The result is a thwarted depression.

I feel at home here in Detroit
Here I am considered adroit
I sit here in my crib
My tomorrows I'll ad lib
Detroit has lots of lots to exploit

Hmmm.
The regular limerick players here seem to have cleaned the scene.
Oh well, I'll post here on occasion, maybe we can lick up some sterner blood. smile

Although I'm not here all the time
I'm HAPPY to send you a rhyme;
It's been hastily written,
So ain't quite HARD-BITTEN
In fact, it ain't worth half-a-dime!

What we read has enormous impact -
Be it poetry, fiction or fact.
The source: immaterial -
I find boxes of cereal
Can cause my large brain to contract.

Stop Reading and Write

Now is the time for your Renaissance
Your ken can be your beneficence
From your cortex extract
A codex of plain facts
And be cognizant of your cognizance

A WOMAN in the Garden of Delight
Was offered an apple which she tried
Though the taste was quite well
She commenced crying: Hell!
I'm convinced there's a WORM in this bite!
