From: The Walrus at work
Date: 08 Aug 01 - 01:41 PM

Alas for poor Johnny,
For Johnny is no more,
For what he thought was H20
Was H2SO4

But quickly up stepped Johhny's Dad,
A Chemist, bright, was he,
He swiftly dosed his young son up
With CaCO3

I regret that I can't remember the last verse in which Jonny explodes (from generatd gas).

Regards

Walrus

Into love and out again
Thus I am and thus I go
Hold your tongue and stay your pen
Well and bitterly I know
All the songs were ev er sung
All the words were ever said
Could it be when I was young
Someone dropped me on my head?
(Dorothy Parker)

That line is the horizon lind.
The blue above it is divine.
The blue below it is marine.
Sometimes the blue below is green.
Sometimes the blue below is white
Foreshadowing a windy night.
Sometimes the blue above is grey
Foreshadowing a cloudy day.
Sometimes a drifting coconut
Or albatross add color but
The blue above is mostly blue.
The blue below and I are too.
(John Updike)


I shot an arrow into the air
I don't know how it fell or where
But strangely enough at my journey's end
I found it again in the neck of a friend.
(Mad Magazine?)


In seventeen hundred and seventy six
A group of American mavericks
Denounced the yoke of tyranny,
The tax on stamps, the tax on tea.
Our fathers felt that they were fit
To tax themselves, and you'll admit
They have done very well at it.
(some magazine read when I was about 11, c. 1960)

Title : - Meditations of a Tortoise Dozing under a Rosetree at Noon while a Dog scampers about and a Cuckoo calls from a distant Wood.

So far as I can see
There is no one like me.

Soliloquy of a Tortoise on Revisiting the Lettuce Beds after an interval of one Hour while supposed to be sleeping in a clump of blue Hollyhocks.

One cannot have enough
Of this delicious stuff!

Night Thought of a Tortoise Suffering from Imsomnia on a Lawn.

The world is very flat
there is no doubt of that.

By Dr E.V. Rieu.

My Mother had a flit gun
It was devoid of charm
A bit of a flit shot out of it
The rest shot up her arm!

Pam Ayres

(To be read in a scottish accent )

I shot an arrow in the air
It fell te earth I know not where
But wit is mare I dinny care
For I've mare arrows up the stair!

On yonder hill there stood a coo
It must huv moved it's no there noo.

As I was sitting in a chair
I knew the bottom wasn't there,
Nor legs, nor back -- but I just sat
Ignoring little things like that.

(Don't know source.)

One of Dorothy Parker's most famous:

Men never make passes
at girls who wear glasses.

Another source unknown:

A wonderful bird is the pelican
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week!
I wonder how in the hell 'e can.

It was supposed to work that you stepped on your left foot on left and right, right. I probably REALLY didn't need to explain that, duh....

I think mice are rather nice
Their tails are long
Their faces are small
They haven't any chins at all
Their ears are pink
Their teeth are white They run about the house at night
They nibble things
They shouldn't touch
And no one seems to like them much
But I think mice
Are nice.

A poem that I learnt in one English lesson nearly 40 years ago and stuck immediately

Eletelophony

Once there was an Elephant that tried to use the telephant
No, No, I mean an Elephone that tried to use the telephone
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right)

Howe'er it was, it got its trunk
Entangled in the telphunk
The more it tried to get it free
The louder buzzed the telephee!
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of Elephop and telephong)

My all-time fave serious short poem is a haiku by Basho:

An old pond;
Frog leaps in--
The sound of water.

(Furuike ya; kawazu tobikomu. Mizu no ono.)

Or for the comedically inclined:

Roses are red; violets are blue.
Some poems rhyme. Mine don't.

And yet another limerick not posted to the last limerick thread--for the landsmen among us a spanker is a kind of sail and the main sheet is part of a sailing ship's rigging:

There were two old ladies named Banker
Who slept while the ship was at anchor,
But they woke in dismay
When they heard the Mate say,
"Lift up the main sheet and spanker!"

There was a young man from Japan
Whose meter just never would scan
When told this was so
He said yes I know
But I always try to fit as many words in the last line as I possibly can

Little Willie, Pair of skates
Hole in ice, Golden gates

Willie fell down the elevator, Wasn't found till 3 days later
Then the neighbors sniffed Gee Whiz! What a spoilt child Willie is!

God in his wisdom made the fly, and then forgot to tell us why

If Noah had been truly wise, he would have swatted those two flies

I had written to Aunt Maud, who was on a trip abroad
When I heard she'd died of cramp, just to late to save the stamp

I know more, but they're all a bit longer.

3 Bird poems that come to mind...

The common Cormorant, or Shag, Makes its nest in a paper bag. The reason for this is, no doubt, To keep the rain and lightning out. But what these unobservant birds Have failed to notice are the herds Of wandering elephants, with buns- Who steal the bags to hold the crumbs.

The sausage is a cunning bird Its feathers long and wavy It flies around the frying-pan And makes its nest in gravy.

The cuckoo's a strange bird It sits in the grass It's wings neatly folded It's beak up it's ass In this strange position It whistles Twit Twit Cos it's hard to say cuckoo With a beak full of shit

This is a song lyric: "Who's Izzy Is He." It took the whole gang of us over a year to find it in response to a request. A search for "Izzy" in threads should find comment. I don't know if the lyric we sent in has been added in the DT, but it may be there.

Ucky Wucky was a worm,…

The local version, and I believe in some of the "Girl Scout Songbooks" was:

Oo-ey Goo-ey was a worm
And a mighty worm was he
He climbed up the railroad track
The train he didn't see –

Ooooooo-eeeeey Goooo – eeeeey

(Last line with inflection only attainable by a gaggle of 13-year-old scoutlings.)

For those unredeemably addicted to self-abuse of the kind thus far advanced by posts to this thread, and most particularly those whose tastes and personal inclinations incline toward "less than wholesome entertainment," I can recommend:

The Limerick edited by G. Legman, ©1964, 1969 by G. Legman, Published by Portland House, a Division of Random House Value Publishing, Inc., ISBN 0-517-20542-4.

Publisher's comment: "1700 examples, with notes, variants, and index."

The dust jacket notes: "This is the largest collection of limericks ever published, erotic or otherwise. Of the 1700 printed here, none is otherwise."

Original List Price $35.00, but my copy has a Barnes "Remainder Table" sticker showing $7.99 – date of purchase unknown.
