MY HEIRS AND EXPECTATIONS

I fell asleep in my little jeep,
While climbing up a hill,
I only wished I had thought ahead,
And, left some sort of will,

For I wokeup as I went crashing down,
Toward the big trees below,
Of course I had no money to leave my heirs,
Just a cabin in the snow,

And, I knew they would have to live there soon,
Because none can hold a job,
And, all will be broke by one cycled moon,
Without this working slob,

But, although they'll have nowhere to go,
They'll sell the cabin in the snow,
For they will want the cash to blow,
Then, they'll reap from what they sew,

But, as I fall I still regret,
Maybe a will could save them yet,
Not selling the cabin would be the bet,
But no, I fear the future's set.

I TOOK MY LITTLE BOAT OUT FOR SOME SAILING

I took my little boat out for some sailing,
But, It just was not worth the bailing,
And, my cell phone wouldn't link,
Before I entered the drink,
As I counted the sharks who were tailing.

ALFRED THE VANE

At his end Alfred suffered from insanity,
Because he couldn't overcome his great vanity,
For Alfred saw himself growing old,
Graying hair and skin fold,
But, ignored the greater humanity.

FACING A FUTURE OF WOE LIMERICK

When risks are high and returns are low,
Then, out of the stock market I must go,
But, many stay,
Waiting for a better day,
But, they may be facing a future of woe.

MY HAMSTER DRANK WATER FROM MICHIGAN'S FLINT RIVER LIMERICK

My hamster drank water from the Flint River today,
He turned into a grasshopper and then hopped away,
And, my gerbil named Ben,
Drank the water and then,
Became a lion and I became prey.

THE PLAGIARIZED TERM PAPER LIMERICK

I got an F on my term paper because I plagiarized,
I copied from a book so I'm not surprised,
I did not use quotes,
Let alone those tedious footnotes,
I guess that's why term papers are so despised.

A NIGHT OUT IN CHUM'S CORNERS

I went to Chum's Corners to have a night out,
I stopped in at the gas station to see what it was about,
I bought a slice of pizza and a large soda pop,
Then, left the gas station for a more happening stop,

I went to the hardware to check out the sales,
I bought a new hammer and ten pounds of nails,
I bought a bird feeder and ten pounds of bird feed,
Then, I left the hardware for I felt a new need,

I went to the market to get some popcorn to pop,
It was after 8 p.m.; time to go home and flop,
But, I still needed excitement, at least just a bit more, 
So, I stopped at the Chum's Corners' local video store.
