here's a new challenge for you lounge limericists; follow up on these:

Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening

There once was a horse-riding chap
Who took a trip in a cold snap
He stopped in the snow
But he soon had to go:
He was miles away from a nap.

The Raven

There once was a girl named Lenore
And a bird and a bust and a door
And a guy with depression
And a whole lot of questions
And the bird always says "Nevermore."

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

There was an old father of Dylan
Who was seriously, mortally illin'
"I want," Dylan said
"You to bitch till you're dead.
"I'll be cheesed if you kick it while chillin'."

I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud

There once was a poet named Will
Who tramped his way over a hill
And was speechless for hours
Over some stupid flowers
This was years before TV, but still.

The arctic explorer, McGee,
Had a heart-warming funeral, see?
He sizzled and roasted
And his corpse was well toasted
Thank goodness it's him and not me!

The narrator dismissed the bird
But the Raven politely demurred.
"No way, José
I'm here to stay"
Was the final response that he heard.

Mary had a little lamb
A little beef, a little Spam.
Although not on her diet
She decided to try it
She didn't, you see, give a damn.

"To be or not to be"
Is the question we frequently see
But we find that the answer
Even from a lap dancer
Encourages tortiloquy.

God alone can make a tree
He surely needs no help from me
But in creating verse
Be it rambling or terse
Or in limerick form, just let it be.

Wow, those are great, Tsuwm and Jerry! I've seen a few of Bob's Alice in Wonderland limericks on OEDILF.

TrossL, did his book sell? I'd love to see it! Your new picture is a bit small for me to tell...who is it?
