Stock the Shelves …
Stock the Shelves a Mile High
Some Random Limericks
To Start the Day.
A gross habit obscene and bizarre
one like sneezing on a salad bar
never washes his hands
and with confidence stands
to put fingers in my cookie jar.
And then there is a story that’s fraught
with many life lessons seldom taught
life is not always sweet
so smile at those you meet
if you’re lucky you might just get caught.
The moral of this story my child
it doesn’t pay to always be wild
for instance in your class
put away all that sass
some places it’s prudent to be mild.
It went off in a capital style
this removal of my bathroom tile
I am down to the wood
I have done all I could
will have to remain bare for awhile.
Spurred on by a very high wager
the cowboy put himself in danger
spent the night in outhouse
was as quiet as a mouse
eating beans is a real life-changer.
Repertoire ranged from classics to jazz
each musician sharing their pizzazz
we move to the dance floor
our feet seem to want more
as if life had gained some razzmatazz.
Berries, berries all kinds of berries
from our trees to our commissaries
let’s feed them to our troops
with many different soups
with none for revolutionaries.
Beneath tree one rainy day in May
a child waited for a moment’s play
with a ball and a bat
he wore his glove as hat
even wet he knew rain wouldn’t stay.
So he rigged up a clever device
to find a way to cook perfect rice
hardly fit in garage,
he couldn’t camouflage,
to fit on the stovetop would be nice.
For a sculpture that’s really first class
keep in mind the materials mass
cotton candy won’t do
problems with string cheese too
or when trying to carve a Lake Bass.
