Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Lugubriously she shook her head and said he had no future
But then he went to medical school and quickly learned to suture
She sells sturgeon, he’s a surgeon; they met at Plymouth Ho
She declared (with no urgin') "My mistake, you sew-and-sew".

Too good. What did she know?

You've got a job, you've made a life
So now's the time to take a wife.
You'll be rich; I'll make you happy.
I've work to do, so make it snappy.

I wondered at first if this was a capsule review of Of Human Bondage then decided not.
Favorite traditional corny limmerick of my British surveyor father

There was a young woman of Wantage
Of whom the town clerk took advantage.
Said the borough suyveyor
Of course you must pay her
You've altered the line of her frontage

This verse is better than worse. Thanks for the laugh!

My granny had this little verse, which I love:

One, two, three-o-leary
I saw Mrs Cleary
Sitting on her bum-ba-leary
Eating chocolate babies.

Apparently it was a skipping verse. I am 30 and I run around singing it like a fool.
