A whale I am, I admit;
The name is a dismaying fit;
But I ain't no Norwegian,
My older collegian--
Now swishing my skirts, I will git.

My electric was off for two days
I couldn't get online to metaphrase
Now Jackie's a whale?
She wants a goat, not a male?
Is this some new kind of craze?

O tempora! O mores!

First we descend to the gutter, then to battling limericks! What has this distinguished company come to?

Well, on second thought, I'm fond of a good laugh and it certainly beats some of our other carryings on. Go to it all ye poetasters!

In reply to:

Bing, a bit of advice from Ogden Nash (whose poem's title is my subject-line above):
Candy
Is dandy,
But liquor
Is quicker.


Candi may be a bit of a dandy
But if liquor made him quicker
-- oh my poor ticker.

It is a rare and marvelous thing to be a latinate criticaster.
But I, unfortunately, am no unerring polylingual.
