The Old Man from Ethiopia (Limerick)

I
There once was an old man from Ethiopia
Who lived in the heart of Utopia
One day he said: “I need more outside activity
And a great deal of love and certainty”
Just to ward off dementia.

II
Fully armed with boundless energy
And a high dose of creative synergy
He talked, at length, about his amazing transformation;
And how his secret potion provided a new inspiration!
But his real “asset” was an amusing young floozy.
