There Once Was A...--By Terry O’Leary--France

There Once Was A...
Lotsa Limericks
From bad to verse

There once was a friar with stave
Overseeing a holy enclave ...
    With a wag of the chin
    At confessions of sin
He absolved wicked whims and forgave

There once was a monk with a wave
Who desired a head with a shave ...
    Well, the barber was such
    That she cut far too much
To create a corona concave

There once was a man in the nave,
Although pious, he couldn't behave ...
    Well, his name was maligned,
    But he paid it no mind,
Being simply a sinner to save

Terry O’Leary defines himself as "A physicist lacking gravity...".
