Thread: The frustrated limerick.

    A Scottish jockey called Sidney
    Was approaching the last at Whitby
    With sheer elegance
    His horse cleared the fence
    Alas, poor Sidney did'nee

    I asked an old friend to have tea
    he accepted the call gladly
    we chatted ate scones
    turned off our iPhones
    the elm trees were our canopy

    upon the altar, her undaughtered
    horn of blood, freshly slaughtered
    incantations sung
    the moon hung
    drawn and quartered

    I knew a magician named Walt
    Blamed the rabbit, but it was the malt
    His vanishing trick
    Was really quite slick,
    His return was what was at fault.

    It's from the limerick thread, but my last line, and I still think it might be better.

    The incredible thing about Olly
    is that often he's really quite jolly
    but some of the time
    a mismatch in rhyme
    sees him reach for a bottle of Bolly
    A man in possession of a wooden spoon must be in want of a pot to stir.

    The drugs that they have me taking
    Mean my liver is close to breaking
    I don't drink alcohol,
    Well, hardly at all
    'Cause my life would be what I was staking.

    I knew that Olly, but for comic effect...

    There once was a man named McMahon
    Of alcohol, was a great fan
    When Carnac would say
    His punch line that day
    To say "YOU'RE CORRECT!" was the plan


    Bacon's what starts every day
    A part of my breakfast buffet
    I know soon enough
    Affairs will get rough
    For that second my cares go away
    If you look at my profile, say "Hi!" But not in a creepy way.

    I knew a magician named Walt
    His tricks aren't what's really at fault
    I tell you I'm thinkin'
    The moonshine he's drinkin'
    Turns into domestic assault
    If you look at my profile, say "Hi!" But not in a creepy way.

    Bacon's what starts every day
    Inductive reason was his way
    The methods of science
    All owe their reliance
    To empiricism that was his way
