Limerick of the Week

This is a pretty poor Limerick, I admit it.  But let's face it: the facts of Thompson v. Libby are not such as to inspire great art.  In order to have anything to work with here, I had to make up some facts and pretend that the logs at issue in the case were defective because they were intended for the Christmas hearth but were not as fragrant as promised. 

In addition, this is one of several Limericks in which I defy conventional wisdom and employ the poetic device of enjambment in a Limerick.  Consider this an example of why conventional wisdom prevails.  But you see, that's what makes this Limerick so gosh darn funny!!

Thompson v. Libby

A plan to buy logs fit for Yule
Met up with the "four-corners" rule.
The parties, they feuded,
But the court, it excluded
Parol.  How Grinchy!  How cruel!
