Cletus O'Toole - Horse Thief

Cletus O'Toole in a moment of greed

   'Borrowed' the judge's magnificent steed

      To steal a horse not his'n

         He spent six months in prison

            His name e'er stained for that dastardly deed!

A Mohawk Moment

In India, Trump had a scare
The Coronavirus was there!
Not one to tempt fate
Trump cancelled a date
He had to look after his hair!

Peeping Lolita

A virile young lass and her beau
Sought to share their true love in a show
They covered their faces, and hid all the places
Where cameras would film status quo

Wringer

Rex was into politics and a mudslinger
the word he called opponents was humdinger.
He tended to distort
and was taken to court
where he was forced through a legal wringer.

Kangaroo Court

Pursued by a kangaroo click
The girl jumped on her pogo stick
Flashing her tush
Out in the bush
It was over pretty damn quick!

Largo

Othello was playing the Cello
That may come as a surprise
He was sad and mellow about the deaths and lies
He played very softly
Then stabbed himself and died

Friendly Lerprechaun

A friendly leprechaun in verdant green
Painted St. Patty’s Day’s first lively scene
Did lots of drinking
Which stopped his thinking
Bubbling over with March madness steam

Give It A Tick

It takes just a tick
To pen a Limerick
You can use any word
Other people may not have heard
As long as it is slick

No Comfort For Job

Job, was a bossy boss
Who was at a complete loss
He was devoid of staff
Who had the last laugh
Which made Job extremely cross

Dirty Trick

Magician Whizdo had a Vegas act
he pulled a Great Dane out of a hat.
One night the dog had the urge
he sprinkled the crowd with a surge.
Whizdo escaped town and won't be back.

Buried nude

A holy man's head was lost in the clouds
His abstruse reasoning made him so proud
   He pondered all day
   Earned zero cents pay
Buried nude - He couldn't pay for a shroud

My plasma ring has so much class
My hot swirling edge is a gas
But the stuff I suck in
Goes to my rear end
And becomes all a singular mass

Had Pretended It Was Ended


Politician over and over pretended;
After being completed it had ended;
Stomach fill;
Pass bill;
We had known is what he intended.

On Mountain Top Was a Fountain

Remember my eyes seeing a mountain;,
On top of it we would found a fountain;
Sure was strange;
A mountain range;
Many more of them started counting.

One Day I'll Get There

Hi ho! Hi ho! Off to the gym I go,
but a friend rang me wouldn’t you know.
Now I’m sorry to say,
I can’t make it today.
That makes it three thousand days in a row.

Dick And Jane

When playing games, Dick was the winner.
Loss after loss made Jane simmer.
But she settled down
when in joy she found
they would be stars in a reading primer.

(Older U. S. members will "get" this.)

Surrounded By People Who Were Dumbfounded

We seemed to be completely surrounded,
By people who  had been dumbfounded;
Brain diluted,
And polluted;
Like complete idiots each word sounded.

Money Making Was Breath Taking

Wonder how much money that he was making;
When we heard always had been breath taking,
And again,

When Trump, without a doubt  would be faking.

Paving The Way

Henry Duff believed he was going to hell.
He was certain God told him that's where he'd dwell.
Indeed God had a say
in paving the way
by sending him to North Korea for a spell.
