There once was a man from Quebec
Who's chickens had no need to peck;
A lady named Betty
Hand fed them spaghetti
As they lay on their backs on the deck.

There once was a man

There once was a man
who had the impact
that even princes
refrained from talking,
when they saw him
and young men
disappeared in respect
and even old men
rose to greet him.

His words and wisdom
impressed everyone
and he treated every man
like a son
and he was like a king
and his life was
a lesson to all
and although
death, ruination and tragedy
befalled him at a time,
and his wife
begged him to curse
the Lord and die,
he trusted
though he didn’t really understand
and God stretched out His hand
and restored him
too much greater than he was.

Yet, his riches and importance
didn’t go to his head
and he stretched out his hand
to others instead
and the poor, the fatherless,
the helpless, the blind,
the widow and the stranger
knew him well
and to this day
almost every one can tell
the test of the Almighty
and the story of Job.

[Reference: Job 29: 4-16.]

There Once Was A Man...

There once was a man, they called brave
Who lived in a hole, called a grave...
Well, being the host
To many a ghost,
He arranged a big bash, called a rave


There once was a man, called a knave
Who lived in a hole, called a cave...
Not being too keen
About keeping it clean...
Well, he took on a wife, called a slave


There once was a man with a stave
Who lived in a holy enclave...
Maintaining a grin
While absolving the sin,
He assessed wicked tales and forgave


There once was a monk with a wave
Who wanted a head with a shave...
The barber was such
That she cut back too much
Thereby leaving his globus concave


There once was a man in the nave,
Although pious he could not behave...
They paid him no mind,
'Caus his name was maligned,
Simply being a sinner to save


There once was a man quite depraved
A voluptuous life was thus craved...
Well, continuous sin
Ended doing him in -
On his tombstone they carved ‘Misbehaved'

The man from Kellogg

There Once was a man from kellogg
Who had a pet frog
that thought it was a cat
so it eat a rat
Now the frog is fat as a log

There Once Was A Valerie D

There once was a Valerie D
Who's poems we all loved to see
They came from her heart
She's perfected her art
Can she pass on her wisdom to me?

There Once Was A Tiny Girl

there once
was a tiny girl
who grew up
in this world

there once
was a tiny girl
who cried herself to sleep
every night

there once
was a tiny girl
who wore the same dress
every day

there once
was a tiny girl
who wouldn't go out
and play

there once
was a tiny girl
who would bleed and have bruises
from head to toe

there once
was a tiny girl
who begged
daddy, please no more

there once
was a tiny girl
who the angels
heard her prayer
they came down
and took her
to a better place
where that tiny girl
found love
instead of hate

There once was a Nun

There once was a Nun and a Druid
Exchanging some bodily fluid.
Along strode the Father
Who saw all the bother,
Lost stickum while coming unglu..ed.

There Once Was A Fellow Called Croll

There once was a fellow called Croll,
Who loved to hear periods roll
On his musical tongue.
It is he who has sung,
'Ev'n sev'n heav'ns giv'n buy not my soul'.

Who bestowed all his wisdom upon us
Pen a poem he could
They were always so good
And his comments were kind and without cuss

There Once Was A Time

There once was a time
When the wild grass grew
Once was a time
A Me
A You
What a time there once was
If only for a day
There once was a time
Wild flowers
Were ablaze
Once was a time
Not long ago
I felt complete
There was no hole
Time was there once
I let it slip bye
There once was a time
Now
I realize

There Once Was

There Once Was

There once was a dream
Of a girl like me
Struggling just to be
There once was a time
Where someone like me
Just like me
Gave up and was forgotten
There once was a place
Where a girl, a sad girl
Was lost and never found
There once was a girl
Who hated herself
Destroyed herself
Like a Phoenix
She flew to ashes
But in the bright morn
She was once again reborn
To make a choice
Happiness or Sorrow
Destruction or Life
Today that girl is me
Happy and free
But come tomorrow
I wonder who she will be

There Once Was A Skunk

There once was a skunk that didn't eat meat
he was a vegetarian that didn't want his teeth
to reek.
Only they did with an onion smell
he had a bad taste that everyone could tell.
Except Sarah Star the princess with red hair
she could not smell his stinky smell in the air.
For Skunky put on his 'Secret Dare' cologne
he did this in the comfort of his skunky home.
Every night before Skunky goes to bed
he sprays a cologne all over his head.
The cologne is named 'Secret Dare'
in which gives Skunky an evil streak and flare.
Then Skunky gets his courage and goes
to Sarah's castle in the woods
this is where Skunky took Sarah's precious goods.
The goods that have the Secret's of the galaxy
Skunky hid them for no one to see.
Except John the Troll-
he will one day turn Skunky into a gnome
that way Troll can kick Skunky
out of Sarah Star's beautiful home.

There once was a man from Lorraine
Who was born with a dynamic brain;
To no one's surprise
When it tripled in size
To move him they needed a crane.

There once was a man from Peru
Who trapped a small stone in his shoe;
It felt like a whopper
As he came a cropper
Then proceeded to turn the air blue.

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter named Nan,
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nantucket.

There once was a man from Bengal
Who built a ten metre high wall;
His neighbours complained
That their views had been stained
And it all ended up in a brawl.

There once was a man from Goose Green
Who came home knowing not where he'd been;
The gig he'd attended
Had mixed up and blended
His brain - if you know what I mean.

There once was a man from Hong Kong
Who spoke in a very strange tongue;
He was no use at all
'Til he spat out the ball
That he'd swallowed while playing Ping-Pong.

There once was a man from Rangoon
Who played, in the late afternoon,
On his battered guitar
In the conservatoire
With a wish that it was a bassoon.

There once was a man from Dundee
Who got stuck up a Sycamore tree;
His friends rallied round
But could not get him down
So he floated right off on a key.
