    It's still not a limerick. Cornwall doesn't rhyme with bed and head.

    True enough but at least it looks better.

    A man like me don't like to see temptation caving in.

    Let me try ...

    There once was a man from Cornwall
    Who stood just a little too tall
    He exceeded his bed
    By the length of his head
    Oh how much he yearned to be small

    “A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
    His beak can hold more than his belly can.
    He can hold in his beak
    Enough food for a week!
    But I'll be darned if I know how the hellican?”

    There is no life I know
    To compare with pure imagination.
