    I wrote some X-Files Limericks! They vary in their abstraction and canonical accuracy, but I thought they were kinda funny. I couldn't figure out anywhere else to put them, so here we go:



    Mulder


    Let me tell of an agent named Fox,
    And his friends, who like deadbolts and locks.
    They chased alien life,
    Caused the government strife,
    Sleuthing chemtrails and digital clocks.



    Scully


    Now I'll tell of an agent named Scully
    Whose Explorer was left in a gully.
    From a creepy-eyed man
    With an awl in his hand
    She was saved by good Mulder's gun-volley.



    Skinner


    Agent Skinner, whose first name was Walt
    Was a boxer with plenty of salt.
    His triceps and pecs
    Were too strong for old X.
    He saved Fox from the Syndicate next.


    ...and saving the best for last...


    Flukeman


    There once was a vicious Flukeman
    Who disgusted some X-Files fans.
    Mulder made an arrest
    At old Skinner's behest,
    And they foiled the smoking man's plans.

    A couple of them don't scan well, and your skinner one has the rhyming structure wrong.

    It's a 300-year-old form that hasn't changed at all. That strikes me as being off. I'm going to play with it a little bit.


    Regarding the rhyme scheme, if line 5 doesn't refer back to line 1 in any way, I'm not going to rhyme it with line 1.


    They all scan fine. I'm positive of that. You can't add syllables that normal people wouldn't add if speaking aloud. "Every" might have been a three-syllable word in the powdered wig days, but I treat it like a two-syllable word.

    If that's the case, don't call it a limerick.

    The show changed for me after the moved it back to LA at the start of the season 6. I prefered the early seasons for the reason.

    I must say this is all pretty on topic for an off topic thread.

    Does anyone I know still come on here? Or am I destined to be forever alone in regards to this forum?
