Bat Limerick

There was a man who lost his hat
Blown off his head like a nervous bat
When he finally found it
He knew it would not fit
The hat had changed to fit the bat

  1. Poor man. I hope his head doesn't get cold. :) Peace, Linda

  3. There was a young man of note
    who had dreams of girl swimmers afloat
    He entertained thoughts
    of their bodies quite taut
    and said'I'm going down under by boat'

  4. Sounds like something straight out of Doc Seuss -
    From Bartholomew Cubbins' caboose,
    Or the grandest gato
    With a grander chapeau.
    Either way you sure kept us bemused.

  5. Watching all that was a certain cat
    Who fancied feasting on that bat
    But the bat heard a cry
    (Like the cat, he was sly)
    He vacated the hat to the cat.

    Couldn't resist as everyone else was playing. (ala Dr. Seuss)
    This was fun! Enjoyed it.

  6. In the ’50s they all wore hats
    Now they’re in closets with gnats
    Except if you’re bald
    You still wear them all
    Yet the ladies won’t give you a chat

  10. Oh no! It’s really quite batty
    to lose his good headgear like that. He
    must be so sad.
    When it sat on his head,
    he surely felt ever so natty.

  12. LOL Reminds me of Pat and the Hatt ...
    RYN: So pleased you picked up on the meaning behind the tunes changing their reason, because that's exactly what I was trying to say with those lines. That different tunes/songs bring different memories and emotions as we hear them. Thanks for noticing :)

  13. Laffin--I've seen hats where wearing a bat would be a huge improvement, actually.
