Execrable Limerick

Here's a limerick that'll make you think twice about those unacknowledged legislators of the world:


There once was an old limericker,
whose song made you quit sipping liquor:
"Oh rum, rum-rum, rummy,
gone bad in my tummy,
an ichor made sickest still sicker!"

This ought to turn anyone's stomach. Ah, the legislative power of poetry! Should we call for a recount?

By the way, is there a pun on "I, Chorus"? There is a song, and I do - like Whitman and Dylan - contain multitudes.

But Shelley comes close to the demonic, at times, and I am not Legion.
