Great American Novel Limerick

Huck’s a good-hearted boy, but he’s white
And has always heard slavery’s right.
   Then friendship with Jim
   On a raft causes him
To see things in a whole different light.

John Wilkes Booth

Julius Caesar with his brother
Taught him that assassination
Was entirely congruent
With his thespian vocation.

Holding mirrors up to nature
Or a gun to some pol’s head –
Either way this dedicated
Player aimed to knock ’em dead.

Next Lines
To see a World in a grain of sand
Is a trick that acidheads understand.
                                        Mike Bailwall

Much have I travell’d in the realms of gold.
Check out the blonde in this month’s centerfold.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Or shall I grunt, “Me King Kong, you Fay Wray”?

I wandered lonely as a cloud,
Being somewhat modestly endowed.
