Weekend Limerick

There once was a space cat near Io,
Who said, with a sinister smile:
"You can comment on this post,
But I'd like it the most
If you'd do so in the limerick style."

As Pacian fastened his coat
Round the cat upon whom he did dote
"I don't mind Space Cat's power
that makes me so cower
But I do wish he wouldn't so gloat."

There was a space dog near Pluto
Who liked to play tunes on the flute, Oh
It sounded weird
Too high to hear
So now he plays the piccolo

(That wasn't at quite the same standards as yours, but whatever. I'm pretty sure a dog couldn't play the flute. http://www.uk-piano.org/clark/dog-playing-piano.jpg)

There were two little kittens from Zog
Who discovered a space cat's blog.
When challenged by this feline
To rhyme when replying
They yawned and slept like wee logs.

Just got back from a trip to the west
Where the sunbeams and flowers are blessed
You can say what you like
About Io and like
But I still think that Mimas is best

Pacian said...

Such quality metered rhyme,
Perhaps the best of all time.
I'll send some ghosts,
To reward your posts,
With a nice juicy lime.

There once was a girl who was viral,
she tried blogging to make her smile;
till she read from the host
what it would cost just to post,
then back to her bed, she did spiral...

When you think it can't get any worse,
someone just has to request a verse
and at that, in a limerick style!
