EVERYTHING HAS ITS TURN

Listen to this lesson, and learn,
That everything has its own turn . . .
Up my pant leg flew a bee,
My wife laughed with great glee,
Until a grasshopper crawled up hern.

FASHION STATEMENT

Her schedule was usually a mess
And a faux pau she should confess
She once combed and brushed
Donned coat as she rushed

And arrived at the Ball sans dress

Fish Schools

A FISH TALE

Small fish should abide by the rules
And swim in their own fishy schools
But if they should tire
It’s all right to hire
The service of river carp-pools

A Limerick for Saturday

THE ODIOUS DUNK

The Redneck was true to his role,
And whiskey was claiming his soul.
He staggered outside,
To the outhouse he hied,
And sadly fell into the hole.

His rescuers chided the drunk
Concerning his odious dunk,
So he yelled out, good news —
He was giving up booze,
Because after he sunk, he stunk.

Get the tweezers, quick

A HIRSUTE HORROR

Long hair is definitely in
But not when it’s on my chin
Although this one curls
It’s not good for girls
So of course, it causes chagrin

MOM SPUD AND SWEET TATER

Mom Spud had dreams for Sweet Tater
Dan Rather wanted to date ’er
Mom Spud said, “Get real!
“You’re not a big deal,
You’re just a common-tater.”

  THE ODIOUS DRUNK 

 

The “redneck”was true to his role

And whiskey was claiming his soul

He staggered outside

To the outhouse he hied

And promptly fell into the hole

 

His rescuers chided the drunk

Concerning his odious dunk

So he muttered good news

He was giving up booze

Because after he sunk, he stunk.
