    limerick

    A local hugger of trees
    says no more houses please!
    I've got mine
    and it suits me fine
    and my parents are both chimpanzees.

    Planderella's turn...

    We know of a lass called Planderella
    At APA Chicago she searched for a fella
    To party all night
    But oh what a sight
    When she fell asleep in the discoteque's cellar

    If your buisiness is starting to sour
    Erect a sign on a tower
    The taller the better
    in 10 foot high letters
    and patrons will come in an hour
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    There once was a planner named bturk
    Who's said to possess one major quirk
    He closes the door,
    Drops his pants to the floor
    And asks Prudence to give him a jerk

    How in the HELL did I get dragged into this??

    I didn't think I had to worry about being shot as an innocent bystander until I got to Detroit this weekend...

    hehe guys this is funny as hell

    thanks for the laugh as my office goes to hell and folks loose their minds

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    The APA Limerick

    There once was a Planning Organization
    Who pissed off Planners across the Nation
    With their stupid exams
    And money making scams
    The APA should take a permanent vacation.

    I guess it's just a case of "Friendly Fire". Damn those uppers they make me take!

    I guess I could have said "intern" or something instead - but I think the fact that you and bturk work in the same office just made it that much...funnier (?)

    Oh wait...PlannerGirl and Dave work in the same office too, right....Hmmmmmmmmmmm....

    While this website has left me inspired,
    I may rue the day that I was wired.
    Work's web-sniffer tools
    enforce strict online rules.
    Cyburbia just might get me fired.

    The sprawling homes up on the hill
    outfitted with every frill
    you might be surprised
    that the people inside
    eat exclusively Happy Meals

    I think that ole Dub would be flattered
    you think that his policies mattered
    but it still remains so
    it tanked three years ago
    well before the last White House had scattered.

    Residential is for houses
    and people with spouses
    not for a creamatory.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    There once was a building proposed
    Both the City and residents opposed
    They took it to court
    For reasons of tort
    But that heritage site got bulldozed

    On a related note:

    The council ruled that is was blighted
    winking at the developers, benighted.
    After lining their pockets,
    they built Johnny Rockets
    where a REAL diner was previously sited.

    There sits a vacant parcel of land
    On which some condos were planned
    The neighbors gave chase
    "Leave the land open space!"
    "Any new development here should be banned"

    Your right Tom and thanks anyway esteemed visionary

    Here's a rework

    There's an online crib called Cyburbia
    With plannertypes from Buffalo to Serbia
    Out of Limp Dirt, Tall Dreams took hold
    The board heats up and pvc kittens implode
    As you can see we are quite prone to hyperbole.


    Also major appelsauce to the limericksters Jfortin,boiker,tom,turkish,tran and the rest.

    Also see this post by aerdona airleas, Limp Dirt Tall Dreams in its entirety.

    There once was an administrator of zoning
    Whose real work he kept postponing
    He used all his time
    To think of some rhyme
    My time management skills need some honing

    Where will it end?

    Yet another planning poetry contest
    Full of fun, humor, wit and jest.
    I waste all my time
    On meter and rhyme.
    If anyone suggests sonnets, I'll protest!
