Limerickoid - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Humpty Dumpty went to the Forum
singing the praise of his schola cantorum.
All the small poets talking away
throwing their undies into the fray.
Crossing at last on the pons asinorum.

Come out come out of your small shell
join the fracas here in Hell
is there something that you lack?
Yes, be cheeky, show your crack.
Don't tell Scarlett Pimpernell.

    A saucy little number Herbie. A quirky Germanic serve, if I'm not mistaken. I should visit the forum and see what the hell's going on. You've tempted me. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
