Some ne'er-do-well, wild rhetoricians
In bad economic conditions
Attempt to cause strife
To Nazify life
And further their sordid ambitions.

Thank you A.C.Bowden, you seem to have leapfrogged over "clever" and landed on "brillant" even while seemingly making your wording as easy as A.C.B.

Thanks from all.

My life is the swing of a pendulum
Attempting to reach equilibrium.
Mostly, tasks I perform
Deviate from the norm:
Witness limericks which never quite end up plumb.

ALLIANCE ALMOST

My life has been perfect almost
Good friends good books a house on the coast
My cat my dog are in alliance
My birthday gift - a new appliance
Ah yes, life is good but burnt is the toast

In marathons, athletes outrun
The folk who just enter for fun,
Except for one time
When they struggled through grime
And a sweeper in overalls won.

Would you rather be mired in a cipher or a circuit?
Neither (says the dreaming man) no cipher would be perfect
The moon circles the Earth
The Earth circles the sun
The morning dream will circle your id until you finally jerk it.

Some spectres are genial guys;
No glacial stare fills their eyes.
One jaunty old cove
Of a ghost said: "By Jove!
It's you, old boy! What a surprise!"

Mankind has never seen a wave or particle
What we've seen is a wave and particle track
We our selves involve ourselves
In things ourself can never solve
But one day flight 670 will surely be found intact

I think this calls for a clerihew:

Old Lucifer
Thought he would make victory conclusiver
If he plotted in his lunchroom with his fellow-devils
A strategy for escalating wickedness to even higher levels.

Egads, maybeso I'd best pass this one up. As I was hurrying to finish my snarky words last night a tornado passed through almost hitting my house. What a mess; two dozen big hardwood trees snapped like toothpicks, and two canoes now sailing somewhere in the sky.

Whew! I think I'll go somewhere and be good for a day or two because bad weather is expected again later today.
