Maybe it's a sign that she forgot she had tinkled...

Mary,

it almost hurts to read the lines with incorrect scansion... some of us
put effort into making sure they're funny *and* correct ;)

Or furrowed or folded or crinkled.
Her brain was so smooth,
It's features so soothed,
That the surface of it fairly twinkled!

There was an old man named Pond,
who thought his friend Kim was blonde.
He pointed out error,
Kim shrunk back in terror,
and thought of how best to respond.

Kgroneman,

Shaun has an old friend, name of Kim
whose rhymes are quite often just grim
but Shaun doesn't mind
he's really quite kind
and doesn't make fun of the dim

Simon knows both Kim and Shaun,
their limericks just make him yawn
but Simon's okay
and lets them play.
It's better than them surfing porn!

Simon,

Simon shows a disdain for good grammar
and his metre's poor unless you stammer
still it's not for the fame
does our language he maim
...and it's certainly not for the glamour
