Limberick and Limericks and Clerihew

It's time to make love. Douse the glim,
The fireflies twinkle and dim,
The stars lean together
Like birds of a feather,
And the loin lies down with the limb.

Conrad Aiken

Young men who frequent picture palaces
Haven't heard of our psycho-analysis,
They've never read Freud
But they feel overjoyed
As they cling to their long-standing fallacies.

An epicure dining at Crewe
Found quite a large mouse in his stew.
Said the waiter "Don't shout
And wave it about!
Or the rest will be wanting one too.


Sir Christopher Wren
Said, "I am going to dine with some men.
I anybody calls
Say I am designing St Paul's".

E.C. Bentley
