"A Simple Twist of Verse"
There was a family from Nantuck-
-et; Pa kept cash hid in a buck-
-et; 'Til one day his daughter took
it; Daughter name of Nan.
She ran off with a man.
Pa felt things might get worse,
And watched out for a simple twist of verse.
Pa followed couple to Pawtuck-
-et; - Little Nan, and cash-filled buck-
-et; Just before old Pa retook
it; He said to the man,
"You're welcome to keep Nan."
He uttered a terse curse,
And moved off with a simple twist of verse.
The couple trailed him to Manhass-
-et; (Pa held cash there as an ass-
-et); Pail in question? Now man has
it; They stole cash and ran -
Nan with her new man -
She stuffed it in her purse
And forgot about a simple twist of verse.
They had a neighbor from Nantuck-
-et; On the island he was stuck;
Bad reputation, couldn't chuck
it; Based on body build -
Girls found him too 'strong-willed',
Which fate could not reverse,
Brought on by a simple twist of verse.
A flea and fly within a flue -
Felt flustered, they were in a stew
Didn't know just what to do
And finally they saw -
The flue had a flagrant flaw
To flee or fly - no worse
Than to fuss with a simple twist of verse.
People say it makes them sick
To hear too many limericks.
I fear it has become my shtick
But now I've lost the knack
With no good jokes to crack -
A tendency perverse;
Blame it on a simple twist of verse.
