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.
