A young mermaid from old Shangri-La
Had a Math quiz --- right after her spa
So she thought, “What to wear,
That will make the boys stare?”
Then she picked out her best algae-bra!
Got a sweet pretend sister by the name of Jan
She lives across the ocean on the Isle of Man
We're united by the funnies
We don't make much money
Although some of our naughty stuff gets banned

I'm an ocean
deep and wide
you never know
what's going to

Sammy went out on a lark
sailing his boat in the dark
and while he got drunk
his little boat sunk
so his hangover went to the shark
“I'll follow you to the ends of the earth” is a very old line
But recently, they've discovered earth is round, will take a long time
Sounds good on paper
But methinks this caper
Could mean death crossing by dinghy the ocean brine
I once enjoyed a movie on a shark.
His bite much bigger than a dogs bark.
In the ocean JAWS scared more than fish.
A bite so deep no one could stitch.
With teeth so sharp, always leaving a mark..
FIRST LIMERICK EVER..
Oceans, woods, abused, confused!
Mother nature not amused!
Her bellies aching.
Mistakes we're making!
Time pollution was defused!
There is an old man of the ocean,
To marine life is his devotion.
We have to put right,
Marine waters plight.
Or suffer our own devolution!
a beautiful love shared by two
bound in Gods word near the ocean of blue
happiness did begin
together until the end
as she softly whispered "I Do"
Poet Rick Parise
Makes love Bathynomus giganteus
Isopod love not a casual lust
Romance private ocean deeps
Where little light ever creeps
Lovemaking crustaceans is no fuss
I wanted to go fishing in the ocean
Forgot the result of constant motion
You wouldn't believe
How much I heaved
Would give gold for a nausea potion
For the "Fishing" contest.
There's an ocean of plastic waste
Which Trump claims just adds to the taste
Marine life is best
When put to the test
Besides who can tell in fish paste?
Republican fountain flows black
on blue seas metamorphic rock,
draining the earth’s core dry.
Greed streams while oceans cry.
The sea is sick but I’m shell shocked.
It drug the beach sand making trenches
causing lightheaded fainting of wenches
the ocean was icy
he stood out quite nicely
even after allowing for shrinkage.

Tripped over sand packed in a pail
Watching ocean ships set sail
Fell and hurt my pride
Not believing what I spied
Top hat and coat being worn by a whale
Preparing his conference speech
Old man ended up on nude beach
By virtue or vise
He stuck his device
In each blowhole he could reach
Lawyers want money to buy a new suit
Thieves with a rolex and evil to boot
They're as crooked as can be
They all need buried at sea
That's where they'd be but I just don't pollute
The ocean stained my eyes this blue
And I always knew this to be so true
That the sea’s bright side
Will change a man’s eyes
Till never he thinks of you
I love to write a word in your praise.
My weakness is, I like your image,
Blue eyes as wide as an open sky,
As deep as ocean never speaks lie,
Tide roars when moon disturbs craze.
Tonight, I view the lovely full moon,
near the ocean on a lonely sand dune,
with memories of my only true love,
who is watching me from far above.
My only solace is a haunting tune.
There was an eel on the ocean floor,
Sammy his name, he knew the score.
His friends said, he was smart,
Then upon a dinner cart,
He said, Hey, I am not an albacore.
A merman once jumped o’er my rail,
And we shared four gallons of ale!
I don’t kiss and tell
But my panties fell
And that was my best piece of tail!

There was a young man from North Park,
Who would swim near the beach after dark.
The move of the ocean
Always set him in motion,
Until the night he became dinner for a shark
I grew this big thing to impress the gals
I knew that it would get back to my pals,
saw the jealousy coming
but I just keep on humming...
finding Narwhal love in many locales.
For "Impress me with a NARWHAL poem" by SKAT A
History Knows…The Path You Chose
The sovereign old Ewe had a notion,
While leading her flock from the ocean,
”Now it seems I’ve become,
Worshipped just like the Sun,
What path shall I lead their devotion?”
For Carolyn's Contest
Time to get the shopping in motion,
waves of shoppers like the ocean,
feels like the hives,
itchy skins arrived,
all's I want for Christmas is some lotion.
