(A limerick is a humorous poem in which lines one, two and five rhyme, and lines three and four form a rhymed couplet. They are often "dirty", that is: sexy in a cheap sort of way.) I once knew a miniature Pinscher; A female: I had to convince her That the pants she wore Made her look like a whore, And she'd lose her position with Mensa. (Notes: "Pinscher" is a type of dog, as in "Doberman Pinscher". "Mensa" is an organization just for geniuses, founded in 1946. The word "Mensa" means "table" in Latin. The name stands for a round-table society, where race, color, creed, national origin, age, politics, educational or social background are irrelevant.) A vampire from Transylvania Had this peculiar mania, For taking great pains To destroy moving trains In a station in Pennsylvania. (Note: Transylvania is the mythical home of Dracula: most famous of all vampires. Definition of "mania": a pathological state characterized by euphoric mood, excessive activity and talkativeness, impaired judgment, and sometimes psychotic symptoms. Pennsylvania Station in New York City is a world famous railroad station. This poem is a "clean"--rather than "dirty" is the next one.) An orange-y handsome man Larkin Came to my sad heart a-knockin'. With a hug and a kiss, I felt such bliss! The white doves they all came a-flockin'. (Note: the white dove is a symbol for peace, the holy spirit, and romantic love.) ---finis
