From Bad to Verse: Pod Cast, Long Sentence, Text Riles

Pod Cast 

My scientific article
On whales has been impeded
The journal called it incomplete
There were cetaceans needed 


Long Sentence 

My grammar, it seems, is rather poor
I mess up with who, what, and when
My verbs are wrong. My sentences long.
So I goof up noun then 


Text Riles 

Printouts were not
As they had appeared
On my word processor
Microsoft Weird 


Arrhythmia (Two Lie-ner) 

When it comes to having rhythm
I’m sad to report that I’m not whythm 


Limerick (Untitled) 

The garbage bin stated that he
Makes relationships unhappily
He knows at the start
He’ll ache in his heart
Because he gets dumped easily 



Regarding a
Redundancy theme
Consider the sinking
Of submarines 


Dial Tone Deaf 

Apple in Scotland’s
Worried of clones
Cuz people there
Have aye phones 


Hobbit Forming 

Alexander Graham Bell
Of his praises Tolkien sings
Because it’s safe to say that he
Was the real Lord of the Rings
