Limerick #20

I'm tired and want to get to bed
But before I can lay down my head
I've still got to write
Something clever tonight
Or my limerick streak will be dead.

Limerick #19

At the Christmas party thrown by ACE
I drank booze at a medium pace.
The right amount of beer
To share Christmas cheer
But not stumble and fall on my face.

Limerick #18

You were thinking we'd draft someone great
Then the Oilers went and won four straight.
The playoff race is tight
And they'll keep up the fight
To land right below spot number eight.

Limerick #17

Way deep down inside my brain stem
There's a soft spot for Boney M.
I always succumb
To their Christmas album
'Cause sweet Jesus, that record's a gem.

Limerick #16

A national pastime called curling
Involves big rocks that are swirling.
The skips speak in tongues
At the top of their lungs
To make players sweep what they're hurling.

Haiku #3

I sit in traffic.
My windshield crys melted snow.
I'm crying man tears.
