~::~ [A-Z Challenge] ~ Young man from Yemen ~::~

Day 25, Y = Young Man from Yemen

Yet again, there are no poetic forms from Y and so I’ve decided that I’ll be using the poetic form – Limerick for this Alphabet.

A Limerick is a rhymed humorous or nonsense poem of five lines which originated in Limerick, Ireland. The Limerick has a set rhyme scheme of : a-a-b-b-a with a syllable structure of: 9-9-6-6-9.

There was once, a young man from Yemen

He wanted to climb up the Big Ben

Instead he went to school

Stood upon a high stool

And became one of their worst bell men

~::~ You’re fired ~::~

Assistance, Mr.Cobb required

A beautiful lass came, he hired

She arranged all his files

In haphazard huge piles

Irritated, he screamed “you’re fired”
