Poems From the Island of Nantucket: Limericks of the Rich and Famous
There once was a guy in L.A.,
Who was a wood-worker by trade.
But, now he's a star,
And he still has a scar.
And, 20 million per movie he's paid.
There once was a guy named Chuck,
Who was always down on his luck.
So he drew some cartoons
And called them legumes.
But he still thought himself a schmuck.
There once was a woman who penned,
Novels and plays for West End.
In many domains,
Like indians and trains,
But murders were always a trend.
There once was a guy named Zimmerman,
Whose Freewheelin' album went platinum.
He gave his old name a rest
'cause the new one was best.
And it came from a poet from Britain.
A woman was famous from Chicago,
Though she grew up in a town called Kosciusko.
But what still isn't plain,
Did she just like the name,
Or was her favorite Marx Brother Harpo?
There once was a woman from Cali,
Who was a star in music and TV.
You may not believe this,
But she dueted with Beavis,
And also made lots of movies.
There once was a man form New York,
Whose religion forbade eating pork.
His first name may sound phallic,
But it's not metallic.
And in his movies he stars as a dork.
There once was a gal from the North,
Whose wealth has risen in worth,
Since she was John's mate,
And incited debate,
About what she'd seen from her porch.
There once was a guy from New Jersey,
With great athletic ability.
But, in Kalamazoo
Is where he went to school,
Before signing on with the Yankees.
There once was a martial arts guy,
Who threw in his hat to vie,
For control of the state,
As a candidate,
From the party of Rent's too damn high.
