Limerick of the Week

Tedkoppellabc1995 Last week's Limerick explored the difficulty of writing a metrical poem that includes the word "consideration."  This week, we begin an investigation into the difficulties of finding a rhyme for "estoppel."

Ted Koppel might do, but how to work him into a poem?  I'm stumped.  Todd van Poppel, perhaps?  Dated, I think.  Well, you can see the bind I'm in.

Ricketts v. Scothorn

Such was the start of estoppel:
Said Grandpa to Katie, "Poppop'll
Set you up nice."
She took his advice,
And quit her old job in the shop-pel.

[Jeremy Telman]
