IN A FUNK

IN A FUNK:

The writer of limericks,

In a funk that sticks…

Him inside

An elephant’s hide,

The trunk–it feels like ┬áthis!

Blood sugar was three twenty-two,

This morning–awful but true–

To one ninety-one

When evening had come,

Would you be cranky too?

It’s not just how he ate,

Much more figuratively on his plate…

Inspection Friday

And huge bills to pay,

Almost in a defeated state.

It was him that was his undoing,

He’s praying for a rescuing…

Maybe a way

Through his Four-oh-one-Kay,

He could reverse his undoing!

NARROW BOATS ON MY MIND

NARROW BOATS ON MY MIND

I dream of a working canal,

Which is for some banal…

Steering long boats

Around castle moats,

If I could, I would…and shall!

An English canal is “el neato,”

To lay on the deck in a Speedo ( ! )…

And write what happens

In a warm cabin,

Limericks being my credo.

I’d love to work a lock,

With bikini-ed babes along the walk…

But since I’m fat

I’d settle for a cat,

If it didn’t try to water-walk.

Alas, it’s too much money

Traveling to England, Honey…

So sit back and dream

Eating ice cream,

Watching English TV that’s funny.
