Said a friend of Ol' Farley M. Mowat's,
While he Spoke about Life as He knowits,
"As the stress of the Day, Will not Winnow away,
I Seek slumber by Counting blind Poets."

Last week's limerick, in reference to the Leonids (did you see them?)
A wanderer from  old Monticello,
Told a passingly curious fellow,
"I am answering my calling, to hear a meteor falling,
Which wrinkles the ol' cerebello."

Last week's limerick;
There was an Egyptian named Earl,
Who watched his eternity unfurl,
When the Pharaoh lay dead, they embalmed him instead,
The pyramidic last Duke of Earl.

The work-a-day world takes its toll,
You may gasp for a grasp of the Whole,
To trade virulent clatters, for something that matters,
Put your hands on the shape of a bowl.
