    He did just one type due to countless anxieties

    Or he would’ve had 57 varieties.

    When he tried to do more,

    The result was so poor,

    Now he just sits there and whines.

    Should be: “There once was a poet …” to give 8 syllables to both lines.

    The 57 in Heinz 57, was a made up number, it sounded good to Heinz, so I am told.

    There once was a man from Corfu,

    Whose limericks ended on line two.

    There once was a man from Verdun.

    Any poem could have just two lines depending on how long you’re willing to make the lines. And the paper.

    But he was such a tool, he broke his own rule,

    and ended up getting two fines…

    That poem has the form of the first two lines of a limerick.

    Anyone want to “limerick-ize” it? Just three lines to go.

    In letter so tall,

    Writ on the wall.

    The city had to erase Heinz’s signs.

    I have written only one poem in my life. It’s a haiku (Japanese literary form of 5-7-5 syllables). Here it is for your amusement:

    How to hang TP:

    Loose end over front of roll

    Unless you have cats.
