    `Watching them hunt Oak Island for treasure
    Makes me think that sure would be a pleasure.
    gold coins so pretty and round
    that were dug up from the ground
    and I would spend them all at my leisure.

    I like to watch a show, Forged In Fire,
    Where some blacksmiths compete and perspire.
    They bang on molten steel
    and use a grinding wheel
    to make blades that can cut through a tire.

    Very good, OTN. May we collaborate here? I was inspired to create a derivative work....

    There once was a maid in the west
    Whose curves were all in her chest
    Which unbalanced the load
    She fell hard, I am told
    They carried her out two abreast.

    I always dreamt of getting a plaque!
    The moment of receipt is still vague...
    Fate don't be unfair,
    Already got nuff grey hair.
    So don't make this issue sorta plague!

    You think that a plaque would help show
    What all of us already know:
    Your efforts incessant
    Make AK so pleasant!
    So you want a plaque? Here you go!

    After being for some while absented
    I looked for the new rhymes invented
    But what I did spy
    Brought a tear to my eye
    The most perfect plaque ever presented!

    A plaque for Chris is like a laurel wreath.
    A great honor upon him was bequeathed.
    It was very well deserved
    Chris always stands by his word.
    Most people only get plaque on their teeth.

    Ole tee vee Nuz' plaque is very fine,
    This one is absolutely mine!
    So I will print it
    And I will frame it,
    And raise to you all a glass of wine!

    I think the best is pesto pasta.
    It makes me eat my pasta fasta.
    But also, I like marinara -
    Give me either, I don't care-a.
    Neither is, to me, disasta.

    Spaghetti sauce makes my head hurt.
    I'm careful but it gets on my shirt.
    Try to remove the stain
    It can be a real pain
    If you also add on some dessert.

    As an Italian, I can relate.
    Pesto and marinara are great.
    But the meal's not complete,
    without wine, bread, and meat.
    That's a recipe for a clean plate!

    Eating pasta can be neat
    If you twirl SLOWLY before you eat.
    But just create centrifugal force
    And your shirt will get splashed of course
    And some may end up on your feet.

    Youse guys need-a the trick
    to make-a gravy no drip?
    Use-a tha spoon with tha fork,
    don't-a twirl with too much torque.
    And never eat it with-a chopstick.

    If a genie gave three wishes to me,
    I would be happy as someone could be.
    War and aggression would fall
    with food and water for all,
    LS50s would be wish number three.

    Sassy made a great nit picker
    Picking at nits she drew quicker
    Than a clever debate
    Never willing to wait
    Chose instead to ever bicker

    Today's International Mother's Day
    So don't let your chance slip away.
    See what you can do
    With a present or two
    Expressing love in a nicely way.

    Sorry for stealing half of your Limerick! :D

    My Mom's been gone for several years.
    Thoughts of her love has brought me to tears.
    She was always there for me
    With great advice that was free
    And helped me through my childhood fears.

    Inspired in part by the music and words of Have Gun Will Travel: Theme of Paladin
    Admittedly the TV show was before my time, but not by much. No offense intended to all the great women-folk AK'ers out there. This one is for you too.

    Have song will listen in The Cave of a 'man
    Beverage of choice in the palm of the hand
    Where we sit in the spot so sweet
    Raise a glass to the rumblin' beat
    Proudly toast A Kinship shared across this land

    "Have gun will travel, reads the card of a man"
    I find the first line of the this vintage theme song a particularly relevant metaphor in today's society. That something's been lost.
