    Just sayin'
    It has been done before - like it now. Doesn't have to 'step' on the one word thread.
    How about this...

    I think that I'm just about ready to jump off the deep end. If you can't fish or talk about it Just think it to yourself. I just pulled out my last hair.

    there once was an old man named Jim,
    Who had pulled the last hair in his chin,
    He would say all the time
    "follow the squiggly blue lines"
    Then he'd take his 4-wheeler for a spin

    There was a young man named Boot,
    Who was almost as verbose as Newt.
    He would stay up late at night,
    To amaze us with what he would write,
    Now if only he could do it for loot.

    I knew a fly guy from Nantucket
    Carried trout to high lakes in a bucket
    His only wish
    Was to catch beautiful fish
    Went bonefishing instead - said fuckit

    There was a new guy from Kitsap,
    Who thought he knew where the fish were at,
    He knew he could match the hatch,
    But the hopes exceeded the catch,
    He said with a grin,
    As he stripped in again,
    At least I'm not home watchin'
    The stupid friggin' television!!!!
    :D

    Limericks are 5 lines. The 1st 2nd and 5 rhyme. and the 3 and 4th rhyme.

    The angler lusted after a Sage,
    He knew they were all the rage.
    At a shop he tried out the pole
    But instead of buying he stole.
    And now he is locked up in a cage.

    Of all the fishes in the seas,
    My favorite is the bass.
    It climbs up on the seaweed trees,
    and slides down on it's...
    hands and knees!

    An angler, it seems, from Ennis,
    Was asked why he fished, he said, "Dennis,
    I loves me some trout,
    it gets me out and about,
    and besides, I'm lousy at tennis."

    I once say a man with no lights
    who was fishing Lenice at night
    he said with a frown
    "this trout isn't a brown
    but a 20 inch rainbow's alright"
