"Hail Poetry, Thou Heaven Born Maid!" sang the pirates...

From indigoskynet: "When you see this, post a bit of poetry in your own journal."

Does it have to be my own? My first choice would be to post "Snarzle on That Tree" by jamesbarrett or "Goin' to the Fruitcake Ball" by praeriedog. But failing that, how about this:

I once knew a mouse, name of Hanta
who engaged folks in light, witty banter
'til he just went too far
and touched an old scar
which really got up in their dander


A dour old dude named Van Helsing
used a razor to make Notre Dame ring
he hid in a bell
and thought it was swell
to kill Mr. Hyde on the backswing


Captain Kang said "Kirk stoppit, that's that!
Or we'll have war in two seconds flat!"
the Feds then all trembled
tho' his ship sure resembled
a surprised man who's wearing a hat


Legolas was a young elf
who liked dwarves in spite of himself
but he'd like to cry
they don't see eye to eye
Until he sits them way up on a shelf

...okay, that's enough for now. ;)

Oh, no, wait one more: this one isn't mine, but it made a big impression on me when I was a kid:

There once were two cats from Kilkenny
who each thought there one cat too many
so they fought and they fit
they scratched and they bit
until instead of two cats, there weren't any
