Amos, in Old San Diego
Thought Rapaire just wasn’t abo
To pen a fine limerick
Which isn’t a hardtrick
If the meter and rhyme are kept stabo.

But once they escape from their bounds
It’s fruitless to unleash the hounds
For the meter and rhyme
Will have a fine time
And besides, who cares? I mean, there are perhaps six people in the whole damned country who know the difference between iambic pentameter and trochaic heptameter, and even fewer who care, and should you take the weeks necessary to write an Alexandrine, say,
the person who you were writing it to in hopes of seducing will
have gone off with someone else because the age is simply not into
seduction and while
the human race has never had “world enough and time”this present era of “carpe diem” and instant gratification has taken all the fun out of things like seduction and flirtation and hell you can’t even tell someone they look good these days without a sexual harrassment complaint
