I wrote a limerick once in high school English class 1958. I have it memorized--

There once was a man named O'Tool
who, for a living, wound thread on a spool
he got tangled one day,
to his Boss' dismay
now they call him the old spinning fool.

(had I written anything like Lecram's it would have meant expulsion requiring a note from home followed by two weeks 7th hour detention.

Had I thought of anything like Lecram's I am not certain I could have resisted)
When I was in third grade in id winter, I was being punished for some classroom infraction by having to sit in the front row. I recall standing up and turning to the class, I proclaimed, "Ladies and gentlemen, take my advise, take off your pants and slide on the ice." Have no clue where that came from, but it did land me in the principal's office for ten lashes of a cut off barber strap by the holy nun. And my disciplinary career took a slide. Marcel

There was a young man called Pawel
who loved a old woman called Belle,
on their first night of lust
he examined her rust
and thought no thanks, it needs too much gel.

There once was a fellow who flubbed
every time he scored at the club
the ladies all giggled 
when they saw what he wiggled
he said they weren't what he "loved".

There once was a man from Nantuck
with a face like a hockey puck
not built like a hero
personality zero
but boy could he blow a trump(et)

I know exactly where you thought this was going haha

[a favorite, but not my creation:]

There once was a man from Long Green
who invented a coitus machine
concave or convex
to fit either sex
with attachments for those in between
