Compose a limerick about the person above you...

The_Soulful_Mr_T
Hank Zona's limericks shine.
In a pinch, they'll likely do fine.
But the only real reason
They sound at all pleasin'
Is you haven't lately heard mine.

For a limerick to have good result
It's me you have to consult
I'll give you a clue
First thing that you do
Is decide who you want to insult.

I'll give you another instruction.
For limerick's successful construction
Be sure that your rhyme
Is really sublime
And not just a whim or compunction.


Edited to Add: I composed these limericks for another thread but was told "No more limericks!" so I started this thread. Please respond in kind.

Soulful is both sweet and sour.
He writes limericks hour after hour.
He created a new thread
to rise up and be read,
But instead it's a place that he'll cower.

The_Soulful_Mr_T
I really hate to impose
On your spiteful rhyme, it's near prose!
I hope that this thread
Is a place folks will head
Their own limericks to compose.

The terms of this thread are too binding.
It's the person above who I'm minding?
This was not said
in the "Haiku Thread."
I think folks will need constant reminding.

The_Soulful_Mr_T
Don't worry and don't get too hot.
We won't be too strict in this spot.
But not a thread silly.
With verse willy-nilly.
The "Haiku Thread" this is not.

The_Soulful_Mr_T
It isn't really so hard.
To be a limerick Bard.
Than Lar's lousy verse
Yours couldn't be worse.
Take this as a challenge, en garde!

The_Soulful_Mr_T
With wit and charm I am blessed.
Far and above all the rest.
Unfortunately, though
From my head to my toe
With limericks I'm too obsessed.

The_Soulful_Mr_T
So here is a funny new crop
Of poems you never can top.
You must burst my bubble.
'fore I get into trouble.
Somebody tell me to STOP!

joan_crystal
There once was a poster who tried
To stop taking Limericks in stride
He'd write for a while
Then start to smile
And wonder if poetry had died.

The_Soulful_Mr_T
I thought that I was alone.
In this thread, that it was my own.
But there's always a fan
To hold out her hand.
Thank goodness for crystalline Joan.

mommyrock
the soulful one's never been above me
though i'm sure that would really be lovely
but while it might be so hot
daddyrock would say "not!"
so i'll settle for him to kiss me and hug me

The_Soulful_Mr_T
That hit me in my solar plexus.
You and me, we know what great sex is.
There'd be no exempting
Even though you are tempting.
Thank God you moved down to Texas.

There once was a woman named Joan
Who called Maplewood, NJ her home
broken ankle she tended
she sat while she mended
posting insights on rebuilding her bone.

(dang it, you all are too fast!)

USMNTFan
Mommyrock and Mr Soulful T
are much faster rhymers than me
some of their topics, I find
are risque-er than mine
innuendos run quite rampant, I see

The_Soulful_Mr_T
Yes, I write them as fast as I can.
With no ideas, no goals and no plan
Sometimes I get fraught.
And it all comes to naught.
What rhymes with USMNTFan?

mod
I find I'm intrigued with this thread
With all kinds of ideas in my head
Mr. T keeps them rolling
With no need for cajoling
Yet, I eek out one rhyme and I'm dead!

The_Soulful_Mr_T
I think a rat I am smelling
My argument you'll find compelling
You yell "eek" when you're scared
So, it's "eke," mon frere.
Behind grammar, what's most key is spelling.

mommyrock
oh you tsmt stud
your rhymes are never a dud
but when i read your corrections
i lose my erections
and my lust for you falls with a thud

hankzona
who died and made T the English teacher?
when in fact he should try to beseech her
he wants folks to write
then actually causes fright
with his spelling correction feature

mod
I agree with Mommyrock's stance
And I blush when you look askance
Though your point is well taken
Indeed I'm mistaken
Who the hell likes a smarty-pants!

(Ahh beaten to the punch!)

The_Soulful_Mr_T
So no more constant correction
I guess it's my predilection.
But I go into shock,
When Ms. Mommyrock
Mentions her lustful erection.

mommyrock
when a hot woman offers you sexing
would you really be so complexing
as to criticize her hair
not matching "down there"
your corrections are similarly vexing

USMNTFan
Soulful T's correction of 'Eek'
causes some people to freak
but what's more telling
is his devotion to spelling
while putting grammar down as meek

(shoot, that's not quite right)

The_Soulful_Mr_T
Please excuse my ongoing japes
And proceeed to remove your capes.
Mommy, I really don't care.
If it's stinky down there.
Or the carpeting don't match the drapes

USMNTFan
Corrections and erections be damned
you both need to be taken in hand
you're setting expectation
bound for deflation
given neither of you wants to be banned

The_Soulful_Mr_T
My filthier rhymes I will save.
To your warnings I guess I will cave.
But I am not planning
On getting a banning.
I'm not worried 'bout Dave.

USMNTFan
I like innuendo just fine
In fact it makes all life divine
mentioning bulbous projections
or lust filled intentions
is rather a habit of mine

mod
It looks like the "high road" awaits
As talk of erection abates
It may be for the better
Though the thread will be deader
Unless this rule someone plans to negate

USMNTFan
I do suck at rhyming this way
But I'll keep on having my say
I'll stick to my course
and keep posting verse
Until the timer rings - oh, yay!

(lunch grin )

USMNTFan
As talk of 'down there' has remanded
my own lines I have been handed
for being a prude
didn't mean to be rude
clearly more 'sex' is what is demanded
