I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.
As every good Anatomist knows
that a collection of tissue shows
how each organ will work.
Being dropped by a stork
affected how our lymph and blood flows.
We have categorized each system
a collection of organs rhythm
a system of support
an epidermis fort
starts middle of chest near the sternum.
We use cellular respiration
along with kidney for excretion,
a name for each bronchi,
our guts and their villi,
our varied bones, quite a collection.
These sympathetic trunks hold our nerves,
our inferior pelvis for curves.
Well within boundaries
smooth muscle arteries,
a quick movement as our hip joint swerves.

Quite an enjoyable limerick on the body. You have a talent writing good humor we can all enjoy.

Another great page Jamie, your illustrations are always good too. This skeleton/anatomy/limerick is so clever. I love poetry month.

Thanks for the biology lesson, Jamie, one of the few classes I didn't excel in. had I had a biology instructor presenting it in rhyme I may would have excelled. A fun reading and again thanks.

Love the limericks, Jamie. Much more fun than my biology lessons were at school!
Keep up the good work!
