This morning, during my morning routine (shower, dress, walk to work, coffee), my mind kept spinning over silly wordplay. Below are the products of boredom and insufficient sleep.

There once was a very bright girl
Who thought she'd give free thought a whirl.
Now her faith slowly dies
As she sees all the lies
Of religion begin to unfurl.

I learned before my chest grew hair
Nature's beauty is without compare.
To explain it with magic
And nonsense seems tragic
When science has answers to share.

This one is kind of immature, but what the heck:

Ray says God made the world in six days,
And the seventh he took off to laze.
If I take that as sane,
Comfort's lack of a brain
Is a sign of his God's half-assed ways.

Crazy, conservative Catholics claim Christ's compassion condones convincing kids that condom condemnation consecrates copulation. Conversely, concerned contemporaries contend contraception keeps careless climaxes clean when coitus compulsions consumingly call.

Darwin didn't deliver divine dictates demanding deity dereliction (as delusional dissidents declare); Darwin did divulged discourse demonstrating descendants' differentiation and diversification (diminishing deific dogma).

The was a Mullah from Mecca

Whose hatred of cartoons was mega

I depicted his god by leaving the page blank

And told him it was all his head so he said -

By god its Jihad on Reg.

Okay, Reg, if your doing a limerick, lines 1, 2, and 5 rhyme with each other. Lines 3 and 4 also rhyme, but with a different rhyme. Then there's the matter of meter.

I agree - but as per the title I was going for option 3 - the nonsense one. :-). I am not a poet and I know it. I don't speak in rhyme all the time. No onomatopoeia from me or even a little sympathy with the use of some pathetic fallacy. My poem shall remain Unheard.

From Reg, non-specific variety
Caused Unseen a bout of anxiety
Given numbers and clue,
Reg replied, "well f** you,
I'll just settle for verse Notoriety"

There once was a Mullah from Mecca,

Whose hate of cartoons could infect ya,

I depicted his god as a headless limp bod,

but couldn't think next what to write ya.

I'm glad to see these contributions
Of odd linguistic convolutions.
To put nonsense to word
Is still not as absurd
As the practice of holy ablutions.
