Try it. You’ll like it.
A fellow was trying to dine
In a restaurant rated sublime
He ordered fine wine
But it turned into brine
And rendered him quickly supine.
A woman was trying to dine
In a restaurant that closes at nine.
She appealed to the cook
With skirt raised to her nook
Stay open and have a good time.
A woman who felt she’d been had
Rode a carpet to ancient Baghdad
When she woke from her dreams
Disappointed it seems
She was clutching her mouse and the pad.
A fellow who always seemed game
Had a perfectly awful first name.
When he started computin’
He discovered Rasputin
Whose name of ill fame was the same.
Telecommuting is gratefully cheap.
And a handsome profit we’re sure to reap.
With the price of gas so stubbornly steep
Sales will slow to a skimpy creep
Making oil companies certain to weep.
A fellow who loved fine cuisine
Used recipes from a chef’s magazine
To improve on the taste
He used spices to baste
And a sauce he called beef almondine.
A fellow was hatching a plot
To quickly tie the knot
With a girl he adored
Who he little explored
But who came with a dowry and yacht.
A fellow who always felt free
Managed a 4 AM tee
Though his wife would complain
And offered disdain
To the tee so free our fellow would flee.
