    Ooh. Ouch. It's hard work to mess up a limerick, but by George, you've done it!

    I saw you 'cross the dance floor -
    I thought of birds and bees.
    But when I tried to speak to you
    my tongue unravelled to my knees.
    I tried to say "I love you",
    but it came out kind of wrong, girl.
    It sounded like "nunubididoo",
    nuh-mur-nuh-murh-ni-nong-nurl

    Yes, you make me nongy nangy.
    Why can't I tell you clearly?
    Be-dobby-durgle,
    tongue tied
    whenever you're around

    Oh, I'm beggin' on my knees,
    sweet, sweet darling, listen please.
    Understand me when I say,
    Gedurble-diggle-doggle-niggle-foggle-nibble-nay

    Alas I can't take the credit. Any Red Dwarf fan will know that instantly. I spose I better put a credit in there before the Gestap... I mean the mods come along.

    Oops. I feel silly now :-D
    But thank you for reminding me of Red Dwarf. I'll have to binge it one of these days.

    This poem’s pretty awesome for a “terrible poem” I reckon. ;):)

    Are you sure that’s the worst you can do??

    :D

    Once there was a time,
    I always spoke in rhyme.
    I then ate a lime
    That tasted like slime,
    And now I can only mime...
    And write.

    I write without fear.
    I fight without wrear.
    How can I write without beer?
    How can I bite without rear?
    I fear no beer is near,
    So please bring some here?

    The demons I fear
    brought me the beer.

    I write without fear
    the tales we tell
    down here in hell.

    Oh, how you loom, loom, loom!
    Just like the moon.. moon, moon
    Bright in the sky
    About to come soon.

    Rabbits wiggle noses
    Rabbits wiggle toeses
    They like to nibble carrots
    They like to nibble you.
    When the rabbits come around
    Pretend I said something profound.

    They speak German in Berlin and Munich,
    Two places I haven't been,
    But considering I live in China,
    I should rather learn Mandarin.

    Faithful, true, but therein is the test.
    Who is faithful, who is true?
    Find the faithful and you've found the true.
    But not really, because it's all made up.

    Courgettes rhymes wiv baguettes?
    Like a shiny green truncheon
    They are really nice to munch
    on
    Unless you find a slug in one
    Damn you Mollusks
    F****ing ruin everything...

    i ride a gas guzzler
    my gun got a big muzzle
    every time i see a bunny run
    i shoot at it with my gun
    me and daddy
    think its so fun

    lookit it run and run
    into its hole it goes
    my muzzle i insert
    my gun's powder i blow
    until the bunny is inert
    daddy loves me so

    Ode the the disappearance and likely theft of my new pen that I got from the stationery cupboard.


    She did it,
    she did it again,
    She never came back
    when she borrowed my pen,

    Plastic and pretty,
    shiny and new,
    I liked my new pen,
    And I guess she did too.


    (I'll be honest, I kinda like it.)

    Yeah that's not bad enough for this thread. It's actually very good.

    The cat it stares from up the tree.
    Its green eyes narrow as it glares at me.

    Cat, are you going to end my life?
    Why do you look at me with so much strife?

    I caught a cat in my bag
    and went to the swamp
    to sell it to a hag
    she took it and in her pot
    did she the cat dump
    along with lizard snot
    and of mushrooms, a clump
    seven bats and a dirty rag
    salt and pepper she added not
    no, but my eyes she stole
    and sewed them to a vole
    into the pot it did go
    now a blind beggar am I
    spare a coin for my bowl?
