Poetry Proclivities

I’m not a big poetry fan in general, but notable exceptions are Poe’s The Raven (especially the Simpson’s version), Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein.

However, I have to admit a certain fondness for the lowly limerick. I’ve done some composing, but the subject matter is often not something I’d want to post on my blog (“Hi, Mom!“), so when I ran into the rare clean one, I had to share:

A Limerick packs laughs anatomical
In a space that is quite economical
But the good ones we’ve seen
Very seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical

I’ve seen geek poetry, geek activities as song parodies, programs as songs (genius!), but I’ve never seen a geek limerick. Got any?
