There Once Were These People... You See ~Nantucket Limericks-ish (Part 3)
There once was a man from Maryland
Who read him a limerick and grinned
He broke him a tack
As a matter of fact
When to his computer, he actually pinned!
There once was a man from Massachusetts
Who found himself full of regrets
He wasn’t that smart
When taking air conditioner apart
And now he breaks out into night sweats.
There once was a man from Michigan
Who had himself quite a large chin
When short skirts the girls wore
His jaw, already on floor
So needn’t pick it back up agin
There once was a man from Minnesota
Who taught a few classes of yoga
Till one lady did shout
When everything fell out
Of his not so gym-friendly toga
There once was a lady from Mississippi
She fell in love with and married a hippie
Love was free, everyday
‘Cept when dearly he’d pay
To his wife, on days, he was lippy.
There once was a man from Missouri
Who fell out of love in a hurry
When wife convicted of crime
He got away just in time
As she hung the whole fruity jury!
There once was a man from Montana
Who married a princess, Diana
Though her behavior, not royal
When found dishes he’d soil
She’d beat the poor man with a pana!
There once was a man from Nebraska
Who frequently, to the ladies, he’d aska
You know I’m the best?
Better, than all the rest!
Just read the words on my flaska!
There once was a man from Nevada
Since granny died, he couldn’t be sadda’
From Boston she came
But it wasn’t the same
When from dark shadows she’d ask ‘What’s a matta?’
There once was a man from New Hampshire
Who searched the world over for a cure
Though not considered diseased
He often peed when he sneezed
Me thinks it’s from all of that liqueur!
There once were these people, you see.

Who says you can't make up your own words?
I'm going to keep going until somebody stops me!
