How bout some limericks?

Today's engineering obsession
Is massive and brutal compression.
Two by fours on the screen
Where dynamics had been
Lead me to fits of depression.

Nice!

I wanted a U47
'Cause everyone said it was heaven.
But 10 and a half grand
For a frankenmic, damn!
So I opted for 2 CM7's

Instead I bought 2 matched CM7's
Me likee!
But take "matched" out of the last line for meter.


There once was a man from Japan
Whose Limericks would never quite scan
When told this was so
He said "oh I don't know
I just try to cram as many syllables into the last line as I think that I possible can"

Engineering Haiku?

How on earth
Does the wind
From your lips make plosives?

Man, I knew that.... I was multi tasking by trying to have a conversation with my daughter at the same time as Limericking.... Corrected.

ev'ry time I start
to write a haiku I think
"what's that other one?"

You know; that other
japanese poetry form
with only three lines?

Try standing with your
guitar in front of the amp;
guaranteed feedback!

got nothing to say
no further contribution
just wasting haiku

Christopher Walken
asks for "More cowbell!" but some
people miss the point.

"GOOD EVENING, HOUSTON!"
(sorry, just practicing for
upcoming concert.)

"ARE YOU READY TO
ROCK? DO YOU LIKE MY TIGHT PANTS?"
(I'm a dinosaur.)

I would take "2" out!

scans pretty much the same, but retains more of the original meaning:

"2" is implied by "matched" but 'matched' is not necessarily implied by '2'
