Who Is Your Favorite President - A Presidents Day Limerick

Now President's Day is nigh
So who is your favorite guy?
A William or John,
Or maybe a Don,
Or the one who could not tell a lie?

I've studied the 44 men*
And made up my mind only when
After much thinkin'
Decided that Lincoln
Was clearly the best that has been.

* Donald Trump is the 45th President, but Grover Cleveland was president for two nonconsective terms, so only 44 different men have been President

DragonVale Thistle Dragon Limerick

There once was a dragon named Thistle
Who dreamt of a day it could whistle
It huffed and it puffed
Till its tale was quite fluffed
But the best it could do was a sniffle.

An Old Miser Named Clarence - Classic Ogden Nash Limerick

There was an old miser named Clarence, 
Who simonized both of his parents. 
"The initial expense," 
He remarked, "is immense, 
But I'll save it on wearance and tearance."
