So many faithful here, and the weekend upon us, figured I'd post this limerick fun from late summer at the evolutionists expense.

Adam and Kermit

A cave ape called Link once said, "Madam,
if you'll be the mom then I'll dad'em."
They had an affair
a chromosome spare -
The boy that she bore they named Adam.

Now Link gave to Adam a pet,
a pre-frog who always stayed wet,
who mated this fish,
a caviar dish,
and thus he and Kermit so met.

The ape girls all thought him a ringer
for Elvis the chimpanzee singer -
with each coy ape look
those pelvises shook,
so Adam became quite the swinger.

But Adam, he thought it quite cruel
that each ape he had birthed a mule -
He went to his dad
who seemed more than glad
to father an Eve for his fool.

For Adam and Eve tweren't no biggie
to nudie it under the figgie -
They had Cain and Abel
and Betty and Mabel
and Kermit the Frog had Miss Piggy.

Here's Elvis the chimpanzee singer
He strums the guitar with his finger
He plays "rock 'n' roll"
And is really quite droll -
He's full of poetic zingers....

A dead-ringer
this zinger ...
points a
poetic finger ...
at Elvis
the chimpanzee,
turned singer !

Such convolution
this evolution.
Shall we start
a revolution?

Elvis is dead .....
and I don't feel so good myself !

I needed a laugh .....
and I got it !
Thanks, Rus.

Thanks for the chuckle, Rus!

Now our Rus has so cleverly writ
a cute limerick to showcase his wit
he's got a keen basis
though I bet, paraphrases,
what indeed had those ape-ettes so smit'.

Nan,

This is fun!

as fingers strum out blue suede shoes
the ape has the jail house rock blues
but here inside passion
in don't be cruel fashion
i'm all shook up by your reviews

Rus

----------------------------------

Hi Martie,

So glad you read.  And thanks for the compliment.  I wanted to give something back from last night welcome.  Glad you chuckled.

Rus

-----------------------------

rus

-------------------------------

Hi Poet deVine,

Thanks for reading and your wonderful response,  Very appreciated.

Rus

Marge,

Thank you!  

Friday night zingers
of chimpanzee ringers
for down constitution
a laugh's the solution

Rus

Hi Claire

This limerick of mine I did share
With all the ape-poets O so fair
But then I was smit
by the feminine wit
of a poetess with the name Claire

Hi Echo,

Glad you laughed.  Thanks for looking at this one.  Appreciated.  

Rus

---------------------------------------

Hi Denise,

Thanks for pointing to the point. Seems there is enough creation bashing going on.  I tried a different form that flopped, then I had fun writing this.

Rus

Hi Nate,

Tried to figure how an ape would be attracted to a human.  Had to be Elvis for me.    Thanks for reading.

Hi Astraea,

Thanks for sharing your smile    Nothing like a limerick.

Rus

To All

Thanks for such a great welcome.  I'm having a hard time but a wonderful time trying to keep up with all the activity and great verse here.  I am sincerely moved by the people in Passions.  I feel I should be reading more and would love to, but my poor lonely pillow...

Rus
