Four Limericks for a Bad Poet
an anonymous poet named Sage
cried out in a frustrated rage,
"I don't understand,
I wrote as I'd planned,
but my verses lie flat on the page."
a fine baseball pitcher named Holder
said, "I know that when I get older,
the fans will be gone,
but I'll die like a swan,
with an unending pain in my shoulder."
politicians are, so I've heard,
never left without a sly word.
I'd like to meet one, one day,
with nothing to say,
but ach! the notion's absurd!
a randy young nurse named Moncrieff,
told her patients, ``it is my belief,
if you`ve something to prove,
he who makes the first move,
is most likely to find some relief.``

THIS IS A STORY I WROTE A WHILE BACK BUT WANT TO CONTINUE WRITING IN THIS HOME BREWED UNIVERSE.
This is the world built on the ashes of the past. Like the great phoenix it...
a fool put his memoir in writing,
that the old days were much more exciting;
those days weren't so far,
when in the back of a car
with his pal's new bride so inviting.
We need to talk.
I need to tell you about my day; whether it was good or bad. I need to tell you about the petty things that happened. Things such as which doctor...
I'm on the other side of the glass watching everything I love pass by me
I can't reach out
And no one can hear me
Those who do stop and look at me like I'm some sick source of...
Oh I wish I could write! I used to try when I was younger, but my mind wanders here and wanders there. I can focus externally like a laser for hours on end, but trying to follow a...
We love then we loose...
Most of the time she loves and he hates.
She wishes she could go back to when try both love.
She tries, he doesn't, he tries she doesn't.
Why can't this...
I got inspired to write poems from this guy recently.. And now I seem to like it. Tell me what you think:
I saw him yesterday
as quiet as a dead bird
and he spoke words
there once was an old man from Metz,
who treated his children like pets;
his wife said, "Come on,
the kids are long gone,
and you're still as dumb as it gets."
there was a young lady named Morse,
whose boyfriend was well-hung, of course;
at night when she came
as she screamed out his name,
she moaned, "It's like riding a horse!"
said a young woman named Gail,
who'd put a high price on her tail,
"I'm worth every dollar,
they scream and they holler,
but they always come back, without fail."
the beautiful daughter said, "Mother,
I don't think that I'm going to bother
to set a great plan,
just to snag me a man;
I have plenty of fun with my brother."
a cigarette-smoker named Jack,
had a horrible coughing attack;
said, "my lungs are encumbered,
my days are low-numbered;
you can tell by the sound of my hack."
a student of uncommon good looks,
told her mother she's hitting the books,
but then I just heard,
well, at least it's the word,
that when she's in bed she just cooks!
a gourmand from near Kansas City
said, "my god, it's such a great pity;
my waiter was fair,
my steak was too rare,
and now I just feel kind of sh****
a kindly old teacher named Fred
discovered his career was dead,
when there rose a great noise
about his taste in young boys.
it ended with Fred's gun to his head.
said a harried old man from Salt Lake,
"I've finally reached all I can take;
my seven young wives
are all fighting with knives.
it has to stop now, for God's sake!"
a handsome young hustler named Chuck
said, "I can't believe my bad luck;
I took out a winner,
and bought a big dinner,
then she told me she's too full to f***."
a penniless panhandler named Morrow
continued to beg and to borrow;
he said to a cop,
"the economy's dropped,
and I have to plan for tomorrow."
a spotless young mother from Keene
brought home a brand new wash machine;
the clothing all shrunk,
and was nothing but junk,
and she said, "but look! it's so clean!"
a crazy young singer from Kent,
had a posse wherever he went;
he said, "when I'm old
and live in the cold,
I'll wonder how the money was spent."
a most imaginative girl
decided that she would unfurl
her flag for the boys
in the rattle and noise
of the summer fair's new Tilt-a-Whirl.
the newly-named Lady, de Vol,
lost her teeth while playing a role;
"I checked the whole booth,
but I found not a tooth,
at my favorite old glory hole."
a penurious fellow named Vern,
the ashes of his Mum in an urn,
said, "I'll dump her some day,
and wash her away,
so I can save the cost when it's Dad's turn."
a young man, nick-named Little Dorrit,
bought a Morris in hopes to restore it;
it was so full of rust,
a cloud of red dust
arose there whenever he'd floor it.
an addicted young lady named Beth,
had cranked up so much crystal meth,
that, on coming down,
she cried, with a frown,
"this is a fate worse than death."
a note on a dark washroom wall
said, "for a good time just call...
you might want to know
that I give a good b***
and you'll quickly find out, that ain't all."
