Jane's felis domesticus has the moniker "Puff."
Puff obtains the spheroid.
View Spot! Witnes Puff! Spot and Puff are engaged in a fracas!
"No, no, Spot," censures Jane.
"Do not wrest the spheroid from Puff.
Be amicable with my felis domesticus."
  

       Oh, observe and perceive!
Spot and Puff have undergone pacification!
Laudable Spot! Praiseworthy Puff!
  

       "Oh, Jane," vociferates Dick,
"Espy our progenitors in the automotive vehicle."
"Mater! Pater!" ejaculates Jane, "What is your anticipated destination?"
"We are proceeding to the emporium with the intent of purchasing comestibles," states Mater.
"Oh Mater and Pater," implore Dick and Jane, "May we be transported to the emporium in the automotive vehicle likewise?" Mater and Pater signify their assent, and yonder they all hie down the thoroughfare.

       Well, excrement.   

       The brilliant [sambiches] beat me to the merry murder of Sir Mix-A-Lot. That's what I get for spotty reading of a 'bakery thread.   

       Unfortunately, since no popular song since has been at once more brilliant and more true than "Baby Got Back", I must reach even further back in the history of singular popular songs:   

       The populace claims we're puerile and ignorant
We will not ascertain prior to our full development
Well I am not certain if the entirety of that is creditable
'Cause you possess me, and baby I have come into the possession of you
Babe
I have come into the possession of you, babe
I have come into the possession of you, babe

The populace claims our affection won't produce the necessary funds to pay the rent
In advance of its acquisition, the currency has all been distributed in expenditure
I suppose that is verifiable, we don't have a receptacle
But at least I am convinced of all of the items we retain
Babe
I have come into possession of you, babe
I have come into possession of you, babe

I can lay claim to the often showy part of a seed plant that bears reproductive organs in the period of time after the vernal equinox and before the summer solstice
I can lay claim to you to habitually carry my ring on your person for adornment

And when I am melancholy, you're a grotesquely dressed comedy performer in a circus
And if I become trepidatious, you're in perpetual proximity to me
...
So let the populace claim that the body of pigmented filaments that form your chatercteristic coat is too long
I take no notice, with you I can't become inadequate
Then place the small terminal part of your vertebrate forelimb in mine, there ain't no bluff or relatively steep and high elevation of land we can't ascend
Babe
I have come into possession of you, babe
I have come into possession of you, babe

I possess you to grasp the terminal part of my vertebrate forelimb
I possess you to comprehend
I possess you to perambulate with me
I possess you to converse with me
I possess you to osculate good night
I possess you to embrace me with affectionate strength
I possess you, I won't release my grasp
I possess you to actively desire me so
...
I have come into possession of ...
Yooooouu, babe

The borogoves weren't too good.

"Look out for the Jabberwock, kid."
"It has sharp bits."
"Also the Jubjub bird; also"
"The goddamned bandersnatch"

He grabbed his knife.
And wandered around quite a while.
Then he sat under a tree.
And took a nap.

While he was napping.
The Jabberwock, with irritated eyes,
Showed up, breathing hard.
And coughed up some stuff.

Hack, Hack
And stab, stab.
His knife made noise.
He killed it.
And took its head home.

"So, you killed the Jabberwock?"
"C'mere, kid. Lemme give you a hug."
"This turned out to be a great day"

No opportunity to evade present actuality.

Elevate your vision to the upper atmosphere and perceive
I’m merely a penurious minor, compassion would be inappropriate
Since I am relaxed about gaining and losing in life,
Sometimes jubilant, otherwhiles disconsolate,
Whatever direction the zephyr bestirs itself,

       From the distant past I am able to reminisce
The way the melodiousness would induce delight.
I, too, was aware if an opportunity presented itself
I would be able to prompt certain individuals to agitation
And perhaps they would enjoy short-term exhilaration.
Alas, in mid-winter I was forced to undulate
Alongside each publication I had transported,
Despondency upon the threshold
Prevented me from continuing my perambulation.
Whether my lamentations made me lachrymose I cannot recollect,
Whereupon I learned news of a surviving spouse
Alas, I was affected acutely
Upon the occasion of the cessation of euphony.
  

       Adieu, adieu, wholesome delicacy,
I have guided my vehicle to the embankment but the embankment was arid.
Numerous fraternal acquaintances were imbibing alcoholic beverages
Whilst vocalizing harmonically, "without procrastination I shall perish this day,
Without procrastination I shall perish this day."

My necessity is, my necessity is, my necessity is, my necessity is, that necessity which is exceedingly craved by me is to partake in ziga zig ha

       hello brothers,   

       it can be amusing to mix languages too. the following looks like french, but try reading it out and you should guess what it came from...

       Early part of day needs repairing,
like the first early part that got broken
A dark coloured feathered animal has said
a word or two on the subject, like the first dark
coloured feathered animal did.
Commend the warbling,
commend having the early part of the day
Commend for the jumping ahead not stale
from the laws.
  

       Sugary is the new precipitation,
brightened from the sky
Like the initial wet deposits on the most
initial long narrow-leaved stuff
Commend the gift of this sugary wet backyard
Grown fully in the way of the Lord.

       His actions merited the incident
His actions merited the incident
He alone was the sole target of any possible accusation!
Had you been present at that moment in space and time,
Had you viewed what occurred there,
I would place a wager that your actions would have been identical to those taken!

       Hey Hey Hey I'm back :D I hope those of you who know who I am have missed me suitable amounts.

I rather like this idea, however am rather poor with normal poetry let alone Theasaurised so I think I'll leave the verse well alone and just give the whole thing a '+'

       Thanx eh. Glad your back.
[Tabbyclaw] you've got me stumped.
  

       "Cellblock Tango." I'd watched "Chicago" right before I dropped by here.

       Ok, keep going with your strange words and I will post my annotations and ideas in spanish from now on so you see what it feels like not to understand a damn thing!   

       ¡Qué poca madre!
Pericles, Oct 27 2003
  

       Ha. Love this still. Just got neelandan's "Hey, fatty bum bum" anno way back there.   

       And [Pericles] What little mother?!? (says the fish)

       I don't know about most of you but usually when I post an idea it has some type of origin or inspiration. A kernel of an idea that grows into something worthy of posting, or a pun that's not too terribly lame, but not so with this idea. The translation of, twinkle twinkle little star, was in my head from some time in my childhood. I didn't look up the words before I typed them; the whole poem was just there in my head, fully formed. I knew that it *wasn't* something I had read or swiped from someone else, but where it came from I couldn't tell you for the life of me. This is no longer true. The credit for the birth of this particular brain child goes to my fifth grade English teacher, Mrs. Paquete and an assignment which I believe she thought up. It has been bugging the crap out of me that I couldn't remember how I got the idea and the other day it finally bubbled to the surface. <br Mrs. Paquete, if through some quirk of fate you have found you're way to the Halfbakery, I will gladly bake you a croissant for every plus vote that your idea has received.   

       Pity, this was my, (I mean your), second best idea to date.   

       Thus, timid little bi-spud, pontificate in multitude de rigueur angelical salutations: "Exalt, mine abecedarian pedagogue. Exalt..."

[Tiger Lily] If you would like this anno gone, say the word. I just didn't want you to have to look it up again.
  

       Rayford, that rendition of "See Spot Run" struck me as rather dirty. Even after I got that the "canis domesticus" was a dog and the "felis domesticus" was a cat, and I know that "ejaculate" can mean "to speak enthusisatically" I just couldn't stop my natural inclination...   

       There was a male of diminutive years who dwelled in Nantucket Whose sexual member was so prodigidous he could suck upon it While salivating his chin, he pronounced with a grin, "If my hearing organ was a female sexual receptacle, I'd fuck it."   

       I know, I know, I lost a lot of oppurtunity by keeping the ryhme...but non-ryhming limericks are sacrilege. One might guess as to why I couldn't think of See Spot Run as anything but dirty...
Eugene, Oct 28 2003
  

       [Eugene] Possibly the opposite? From 'limku' :   

       Man from Nantucket
Was generously endowed.
His ear was not safe.

       //[Tiger Lily] If you would like this anno gone, say the word. I just didn't want you to have to look it up again.//   

       Oh Spudly, twofold, commit no such act. Squelched I was you perceived me not, heretofore, a promenading lexicon. Nonetheless, I am canonized. ;b

       Exculpate mine impudence at disparaging thy grasp of jargon, honorable [Grimalkin Foreboding]. Mine own would be thus, druthers forthcoming. Alas.   

       For [Pericles]: Semilla de una planta gramínea con un líquido mamario, me alegraría si pudiera matrimoniarme con una mujer lusitana que todavía no he visto el vejez.

       about twenty five years ago I was one of a hundred or so members of the college band expounding to the perspicacious practicians on the verdant grid "Repel them, repel them! Force them to relinquish the oblong spheroid!"

       During the time immediately before the present
The one who is speaking
Doth rid of dirt, impurities, extraneous matter
Any of the areas into which a computer display is divided
In order that he may, perchance become
Duly, truly worthy
To acquire, free from fraud and deception
One bright shilling.
neelandan, Dec 27 2003
  

       Applause....

       What's another word for "thesaurus"?
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 30 2007
  

       How about "onomasticon"? Oh wait, that's for proper names.
