There was a harmonica player from Oz
this is a tough one to rhyme 'cause
adherence to meter
is starting to peter
and the typing is hurting my paws.

I'm going to a concert tonight...

I'm going to a concert tonight
Rednecks and banjos in starlight
It's nothing for yuppies
With pedigreed puppies
But for those owning mutts it's alright

Magic in a gadda da vida
by a drunk singa
The butterfly had iron wings
From the garden they did dings
From Paradise the title did meana



The crowd chanted Rock Chalk




The song is significant in rock history because, together with Blue Cheer and Steppenwolf, it marks the point when psychedelic music produced heavy metal.[citation needed] A commonly repeated story says that the song's title was originally "In the Garden of Eden" or "In the Garden of Venus" but in the course of rehearsing and recording, singer Doug Ingle was intoxicated and accidentally slurred the words, creating the mondegreen that stuck as the title. However, the liner notes on 'the best of' CD compilation state that drummer Ron Bushy was listening to the track through headphones, and couldn't hear correctly; he simply distorted what Doug Ingle answered when Ron asked him for the title of the song (which was originally In-The-Garden-Of-Eden).

The crowd chanted Rock Chalk
as they cheered on their favorite Jayhawk.
But isn't it tragic
we can't stick to magic
with this thread--is it time for a lock?

No, he wasn't. You might want to read up on the proper form of metrical feet in Limericks.

Boo hoo hoo we haven't got enough syllables.

The ventriloquist was so good,
That with his dummy, which he had made out of wood,
He'd say something funny,
In fact so funny that a rabbit read it and keeled over and died a big furry death.
So he should.

A metre's 100 cm,

I learned that from my uncle Clem.
He wasn't a teacher
but a crooked old preacher,
whose sermons were full of green phlegm.

I heard Lance produced a dead dove.
He made it come out of his glove.
He thought it was breathing,
But PETA was seething.
A performance not to be proud of!


A rare sentence fragment's not bad

A rare sentence fragment's not bad
And run-ons don't make me so sad
But abuse of a comma
Is like killing your momma
In front of the eyes of your dad

Marylin married a magician
Indeed, that was always her mission
As she'd heard that his wand
Possessed powers beyond
Lesser men, hence her blissful condition

(I thought this thread was dead)

Exposure is bad for our craft
Like Valentino, at whom we all laughed.
He made a quick buck
That ignorant f*#k,
The whole thing did seem a bit daft.

My EX got my wand in the divorce.

My EX got my wand in the divorce
And naturally I feel some remorse
But DVDs she left behind
So the wand I don't much mind
I may continue to believe in the Force

Bruce Lee was an astonishing talent
With a decidedly martial arts bent
With his fists of fury
The baddies would scurry
But now sadly his days are all spent


It's the debut of Celebracadabra
