Sorry Patrick, that sucks.
Hope it doesn't cost major bucks.
To replace that thing
that goes under the string.
Just don't kick it in your Chucks.

It's really just fiction, you see
But I'm still grateful, totally
'Cause I've had so much shit
With this thing's hardware bits
It gets me so mad I can't see

Actually I really love the thing, if it didn't shit out on me all the time I wouldn't know anything near as much about the inner workings of guitars as I do now.

You may just find this grotesque,
but I find my polisci prof statuesque.
And though it is sick,
I lust after his body politic,
And want to bend him right over the desk.

 :-D :-D :-D

To Darryl, from Gabbly.

Darryl, he's one of a kind
He's got a nice behind
But when I proposed
He went OH NOES
And now I'm sorry I pined.

Darryl on Gabbly was mine
Our marriage was going just fine
Then off he did run
The end had begun
He is such a terrible swine

He tried to marry Shane, Adam, and me
But Darryl left us for Jodie
What he did was a crime
And then left Jodie behind
And broke all of our hearts, you see.

There once was a drunkard from cardiff
whose limeicks did not rhyme at all
they didn't scan either
but he perservered anyway
his name was pete

The lim'ricks that follow aren't mine
i did write the opening rhyme
to let you all know
as rhyming guys go
at best, I would say I am fine.

There once was a [person] from [place]
Whose [body part] was [special case].
When [event] would occur,
It would cause [him or her]
To violate [law of time/space].

A dying mosquito exclaimed,
"A chemist has poisoned my brain!"
The cause of his sorrow
Was para-dichloro-
Diphenyl-trichloroethane

If you catch a Chinchilla in Chile
And cut off its beard, willy-nilly
You can honestly say
That you have just made
A Chilean Chinchilla's chin chilly

and the mother of all limericks...

A Brief History of Gravity

It filled Gallileo with mirth
To watch his two stones fall to Earth
"Their rates are the same,"
He gladly proclaimed,
"And quite independent of girth!"

Then Newton declared in due course
His own law of Gravity's force,
"It goes, I declare,
As the inverted square
Of the distance from object to source."

Next Einstein revealed his equation
Which succeeds to describe gravitation
As spacetime that's curved
And it's this that will serve
As the planets' unique motivation.

But the end of the story's not written,
By a new way of thinking we're smitten.
We twist and we turn
Attempting to learn
The Superstring Theory of Witten.

These are all from this site

Edit: I see you all already know of the site. Well, this post is mostly pointless then.

The trick to good poems, I find,
is not to rely on your mind,
but to use a thesaurus
and thus you can wow us.
(I don't think the middle part rhymed.)

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

Stayed up all night coding away
On a project that is due today
Still not nearly done
Procrastination's no fun
Wait, the deadline's postponed, JOYOUS DAY!!

That limerick reminded me
that I have an exam in IT.
It's tomorrow at nine
which is really not fine;
it's rather too early, you see.
