    Did Rosencranz say about or ’bout? I don’t see him as the kind of guy who drops syllables.

    Building holds two men

    Backdrop for their lives it seems

    By God’s grace not mine.

    Rosencranz apparently pronounces the word “lim-e-ricks.” Don’t most people drop the “e,” a la “limricks?”

    We speak, we wait, sit

    Wondering how time cuts us

    Yet no insight gained

    Life idle, no work

    Begging for coins from workers

    Deaf to winters cold

    The Real Challenge is writing a Clean Limerick.

    .

    A certain young fellow named Beebee

    Wished to marry a lady named Phoebe

    “But,” he said, "I must see

    What the minister’s fee be,

    Before Phoebe be Phoebe Beebee."

    .

    Aye-aye-aye-aye,

    In China they do it with chili

    So sing me another verse

    That’s worse than any other verse

    Make sure that it’s foolish and silly.
