Injustice

Some good friends of mine are heading out today to Laramie, Wyoming to play a concert. I have never played there, which really doesn't seem quite fair, for obvious reasons:

There once was a pianist named Jeremy
Who flew out to give concerts in Laramie
But as he sat down to play
A rip at his rear made him say
"My buttocks are really quite bare, Ah me!"


Apologies. Real post later. It seems to me the first two lines are pretty much set; if you come up with any better conclusions, please let me know.

"My fine Les Adieux
Made the meadowlarks coo
But the bison just stand there and stare at me."

Bravo.

Kudos to Matthew.

For inspiration, the one and only limerick that has ever adhered to my brain:

As Titian was mixing rose madder
His model stood nude on a ladder.
Her position, to Titian,
Suggested coition.
So he climbed up the ladder and had her.

I was worried that my attempt was too risqué, but after Chris's post...

There once was a pianist named Jeremy
Who flew out to give concerts in Laramie
Where the fan who was smartest
Said, with a wink at the artist,
"Come here, and I'll let you take care of me..."

I think Language Lover wins (although Hari's is so true-to-life that it hurts like a withdrawl migraine), but I'll throw in one more, as long as we're going all PG-13....

A girl from Cheyenne
Took one look at his span
And remarked, "I think that boy should marry me."

As he flew over town,
He started to frown,
And thought,"This place is too small for a talent like me!!!!"

Thank you, Matthew. I rather liked your bison myself. :) Here's another one:

Such passion he wrought
More music they sought
So the next year they got Neeme Järvi.

(How often does one get the opportunity to use "Neeme Järvi" in a limerick? :D )

He tickles the keys
Oh my, what a tease!
"Oh hun, won't you come home with me?"

hehehe :P

Said he,"I hope they like Bach; if they do, I'm a lock. And if not, I'll pull out the Debussy!"

I'm so touched by all of your efforts.
