A poet, a pen and a smile
Reached out from the Emerald Isle;
Hatching hilarious rhymes—
Buoying up bittersweet times—
Teasing rimes with lighthearted style.
There was a young lady of Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger;
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside,
And the smile on the face of the tiger.
There once was a girl from Caerphilly
Who's clothes were all lacy and frilly;
They were poor insulation
It was no preparation
'Cause in winter Caerphilly is chilly.

The marriage of poor Kim Kardashian
Was krushed like a kar in a krashian.
Her Kris kried, "Not fair!
Why kan't I keep my share?"
But Kardashian fell klean outa fashian.
The ant has made himself illustrious
Through constant industry industrious.
So what? Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?
There once was a guy named Ben,
Who asked me money for a lend,
And so I told him
I could trust him as far as I could throw him,
And so he never spoke to me again.
There was an old granny named Flo
she came down with gangrene on her toe,
so she went to the dentist
who was known as adventist
and he said 'it's a tooth for a toe.'
There once was a fellow from Spain
Who walked round the town in the rain;
His brolly then bust
In the rain and the gust,
Who said it falls mainly on the plain?

Yippee! Passion made Santa Singh silly,
he glanced at a nubile young filly
from Longtown in England -
his heart danced in dreamland -
But he didn't say a word to his Lilly.
Far be it that I should now brag
or place on my body a tag.
But on closer inspection
and considered reflection...
It's a humdinger duffle bag.
