Please Take Care When You Utter A Curse
100 Limericks by Doug Baird

An intrepid explorer named Owen
Unearthed ruins that he thought were Minoan.
And while camped at his base,
In that faraway place,
He discovered antique protozoan.
A big underworld god [name of Hades]
Had a difficult time with the ladies.
So he set out to fix
The old stigma of Styx,
And he bought a new S-Class Mercedes.
Poor MacManus McDingus McFee
Got some bites late at night from a flea.
And awoke with surprise
To find marks on his thighs,
And some bumps on his rump and his knee.
A mottled old dog we called Spot
Was the scourge of a large vacant lot,
