    2AM at Three Days

    Why won't the baby take the breast?
    Doesn't she know I need to rest?
    This should be so easy,
    So simple and breezy,
    Eat already, I'm done with this test.

    My Plight

    I didn't have to give a fight
    The pants were just a little tight
    Yet my choice I regret
    Bending under the net
    While I played badminton last night

    Bombo the baby was spindly thin,
    But fat and gluttony deep within.
    Little Bombo played with toys,
    Little Bombo ate little boys,
    Chucking their bones in random bins.

    This fine day I met a fellow.
    He was real simple and mellow.
    We talked for a while,
    Then he formed a smile,
    But his teeth were all stained yellow.

    You Don't Say!

    There was a young boisterous buck
    with a penchant for pushing his luck
    He attempted to linger
    with a red headed singer
    and encountered the grill of her truck

    Lonely Man

    A lonely man raced to the mall
    to find himself a blow up doll.
    Real girls were too hard to find
    Around them he could not unwind
    Or work up the nerve to call.

    Daisy Higher, a fabulous diver
    Boasted from her higher diver pyre
    “Better than you I will do”
    And so she did, so she flew
    Into a pool that could be no dryer.

    A True Story

    My aunt Nancy is kinda a nut,
    Who says, “Go without underwear and strut.”
    So I thought, “That’d be easy!”
    But I didn’t figure it’d be breezy,
    ‘Cause sure enough, I exposed my butt!

    Child's Play

    The kid plays many a game,
    Neither for glory nor for fame.
    She falls and gets up again-
    Won't be subdued by the pain.
    Grown ups...Time to learn the same!

    Tale of the Time Lord.

    There once was an alien physician,
    Who was a little upset at his position,
    He needed to kill,
    But had not the will,
    Preferring to fight with cognition.


    So now the alien physician,
    Took on a dangerous mission,
    Avoided the fight,
    But instead took flight,
    To stop some nuclear fission.


    But then the alien physician,
    Found himself in bad condition,
    Broken and bruised,
    His body abused,
    He began to start the transition.


    For you see, this physician could cheat,
    As he lit up the darkened street,
    A brand new face,
    In the same old place,
    A man who could never be beat.


    So now The Doctor lives on,
    His battle finally won,
    Sat in his seat,
    Resting his feet,
    Wondering where his TARDIS had gone.

    My Limerick

    My rhyme schemes make me sick,
    I never know which words to pick.
    Middle lines are even worse
    with constant lack of proper verse.
    So I feel like a complete nut, when it comes to limerick.
