When A Young Lady In A Bonnet

When a young lady in a bonnet

Composed a very fine sonnet,

And they said, “that doesn’t quite rhyme”,

She replied, “that is no crime”,

Then left to change her bonnet!

 

 

When a young lady in a bonnet

Composed a very fine sonnet,

And they said, “that doesn’t quite rhyme”,

She replied, “now I have the time,

I shall be right back on it!”.

There Once Was A Man Named Dan

There once was a man named Dan
Who loved a girl called Ann,
But Ann loved Bill
(Who was with Jill),
And Jill, she fell for Dan!

When A Young Man Whose Name Was Max

When a young man whose name was Max
Remarked, “Britannica Pax”,
And they said, with a sigh,
“You foolish young guy”!,
He told them all to relax!

When a young man named Max
Remarked, “Britannica Pax”,
A man called Purse
Said, “It doesn’t work as verse,
But it should be Pax Britannica!”.

Note: (“Pax Britannica” is latin for “British Peace”).

When A Young Man Named Slattery

When a young man named Slattery

Came up in court for battery,

A judge called Trish

Said, “as this concerned a fish,

I dismiss this case for battery”!.

 

Pass

When old men make a pass
At the youthful lass,
I wonder whether
Either party ever
Look in the glass
And think, “all this will, one day, pass”

Nymphs will play
And hair turn to grey.
The woman (once girl)
Seeing autumn leaves whirl,
May consider the youthful lass,
And think, “all things must, one day, pass”.

There Once Was A Poet Named Lin

There once was a poet named Lin
Who wrote poems on a baked bean tin.
She composed in free verse,
Which grew progressively worse,
But all the Modernists loved Lin!
