Right me a pome, pleez! [More:]
Let's walk the doggerel together. I'll provide some "rhyming" pairs, you regurgitate a couplet (or few). Or, uhh, craft your own fraternal twins and take it from there.

The verse, the better!

sympatico / "Attica!"
hoosegow / moose-cow
Nietzsche / itchy
ennui / sodomy
war on terror / Maureen O'Hara
gas mask / ass flask
carne asada / Reno NV
Bush / zhoosh

How I learned not, what Philosophy is

I once braved to read Nietzsche
But it made my neck itchy.
I then tried to read Sartre
But he made me fart-rrrrrrr.

And old Aristotle
Could only yodle.
His teacher, the Plato
was a rotten potatoe.

I read Sigmund Freud
But it left me with a void.
In my head and Ayn Rand
Was awfully bland.

This poem makes no sense
So I'll end it with Peirce.

That wicked philosopher Nietzsche
When horny could be such a bitch, he'd
say "Gotterdammerung, wench!
Ich bin dein ubermensch!
Ecce homo, and scratch where he's itchy!"

A man once in terrible error
Declared that a war on terror
Was to be fought
And the blame for it ought
To be put on this man...or was it a woman...what was her name again? Oh, right! Maureen O'Hara!

I once ate in Reno, Nevada
A huge plate of carne asada
But after I'd splurged,
Well, the cloud that emerged
Could have torched the whole Spanish armada

Apropos of nothing, I swear. It just... occurred.

When searching for bovine romance
Use a careful and cautious advance
They'll kick, if adverse,
Or - what's even worse -
Drop a gallon of shit in your pants.

A man ended up in the hoosegow
For selling fake beer he called "Fussbrau" -
It was made from the claws
On a jackalope's paws
And distilled with the hoof of a moose-cow

In ancient Rome, there was a poem...

The task that I set (to compose a fun ditty)
Would reap, I guessed, a bumper crop of la merde.
For some brains that do throng hereabouts
Are surely like Macbeth's Scottish sisters
More than (& I'm being kind) certifiably weird.
Imagine my shock, 'pon return to this thread:
Prose pretty and whitty (not one whit o' the shitty)
And even (gasp!) rhymed! Color me ensnared.

The Marine recruit, less brain than brute,
drew titters by donning his ass flask
during a toxic gas drill...
then compounded the thrill
by taking a dump in his gas mask.

Thanks, rob, for the kind words you said
If it weren't for the fur, I'd blush red
I'm half wolf at heart,
But my domestic part
Is still pleased by a pat on the head

This thread has been sitting neglected
Its poetry long since collected
But threads here don't close
And thus nobody knows
When traffic might be redirected
