Miscellaneous Doggerel

I recently vacationed in New Orleans and was reminded that NOLA is an acronym for New Orleans, Louisiana. Reflecting on that and the woman's name "Nola," I wrote some doggerel. My mind then turned to my hometown, which is sometimes referred to as COSA (City of San Antonio). Then a friend suggested the first line of a limerick and things went downhill from there.

Nola from NOLA liked to drink cola;
While sitting out on the levee,
But later a gator snuck up and ate her;
Wow! Man, that story’s so heavy.

Rosa from COSA drank a mimosa,
While sitting out on the river,
But the spider beside her could not abide her,
And bit her, thus causing a shiver.

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly
That laid all its eggs before it could die.
The maggots all hatched
When the fly was dispatched.
And crawled out her ear in July.

There once was a man from Vesuvius,
Who liked to drink Orange Julius.
He ordered a cup
And drank it all up
And said that it was the grooviest.
