The Limericks of Brian

30 Jan

A limericist named Brian,
tends to think his thoughts in rhyme
thoughts occupy him
trying to rhyme
no time for a rhymer like Brian

Brian should get help, many say
for therapy, Brian won’t pay
some suggested a shrink
to help him un-kink
but he thinks his kinks are okay

Limericks have gotten a bad wrap
they represent a cultural gap
offensive they are
to make you har-har
but many forget how to laugh

There was a limerick-minded buffoon,
who resembled a thoughtful baboon
with chin in his hand
he’d do a head-stand
it’s how with himself he’d commune
