Too many syllables, but a good try.

Bravo, subby!

It's not too many syllables if you apply the concept of anicrusis appropriately. The first syllable in a line is not always the downbeat. Consider the national anthem:
"Oh *SAY* can you see," not "*OH* say can you see."

/Poetry nazi thread!

How about:

Hey diddle diddle, what's in the road's middle?
Two cows in the light of the moon.
The oncoming truck had really bad luck,
bovine guts on the roadway are strewn
 
2012-06-15 12:36:22 PM  
You really shoehorned that one in there, subby.

Hey Diddle Diddle
The cows in the middle
The truck driver tries to avoid
His efforts for naught
He's rather distraught
Poor cows are rather destroyed.

There once was a man from Japan
Who wrote verse that just never would scan
When they said "But the thing
Doesn't go with the swing!"
He said "Yes, but I always try to fit as many words into the very last line as I possibly can."

Was it "moo-icide"?
 
2012-06-15 12:38:14 PM

Udder destruction.

I lol'd at the headline.

When I was in third grade, my family hit a pregnant cow on the highway. At night. In a Karmann Ghia. Both the cow and the Ghia died.

She did not however, fall from the heavens. She was just standing there.

While it is quite rude
to get be critiqued by some dude
The question remains,
and is a common refrain:
is this limerick MaxxLarge approved?

/first ever attempt at limerick.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Most poems rhyme,
But this one doesn't.

As god is my witness, I thought cows could fly.

Almost 30 years ago, when I was an on call claims adjuster, I got called out to a cow/semi crash.

A herd of cows got out of a farmer's field and wandered out on a two lane rural blacktop around 2 AM, just past a blind curve. A tractor/trailer unit came down the road at 65 mph and slammed into them.

I got there later that morning. Blood and guts all over the damn place. glad I'm not in that line of work any more.

It shone, pale as bone
as I stood there alone.
And I thought to myself
how the moon that night, cast its light
on my heart's true delight
and the reef where her body was strewn.
