Anatomy Limerick

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.

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!
