    Violets are blue
    Orchids are black
    My wife slapped me
    And I slapped her right back.

    My grandmother said that she was punished by her mother for reciting the following "naughty" poem (well, it WAS 1909 after all):

    Mary Rose, dressed in black.
    Mary Rose, sat on a tack.
    Mary Rose.

    When I was in 6th grade, my best friend's name was Tammy Martin. We rode the bus together.
    One of the older boys on the bus, who she had a crush on, made up a poem and I still remember it.
    On that particular afternoon, I didn't laugh because she cried, but I have smiled every time thereafter when I thought of it.

    Mr Brown came to town
    Carrying a barrel of hay
    Tammy Martin came a fartin'
    and blew it all away.

    Roman army cadence:

    Est non non uti in respiciens,
    Jodius tuam obtinuit Cadillacum.

    Est non non uti est in domum,
    Jodius surrexitet abiit in cura puella.

    I'm sure you old Army guys can translate.

    I got an appointment to OCS at Fort Ord after returning from Korea. Turned it down as I planned to get out. Would have had to sign up for three or four more years.

    Don't know, @Mary Robi, I gave it a stab:

    It is at once not to use it in the reference to it, Jodie got your Cadillac. It does not use a home Jodie surrexitet went into the care of the girl.

    No, doesn't sound right. You translate, por fa-vor

    Well, I spent my three years in Latin class making a strong effort to learn as little Latin as possible, but I'm sure you know the routine:

    Ain't no use in lookin' back,
    Jody's got your Cadillac.
    Ain't no use in goin' home,
    Jody's got your girl and gone.

    Looks like you are very right Mary. Both Google & I missed it.
    Some of us old dogs don't know beans one could say
    And it appears I posted above on Mary's post when my reply
    was meant for Hal. Thinking mybe one of us old dogs should
    stay home and keep his lips buttoned.
