Cinema-bound: Artemeis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

If you know an Irish pre-teen
Any colour, once his passport’s green
He could have a howl
Playing Artemis Fowl
And become a star of the big screen

    …there was an old poet called Seamus
    like Moynes but even more famous
    discovered passports aren’t green
    so he toasted the queen
    in a gesture that would no longer shame us

    There once was a lad named Bisted
    Who, hard on his laurels, he rested
    ‘Til one fine May day
    As he shhhlurped down his tae
    He let slip that he’d enlisted

      …ah Zena you’re being a bit mean
      my shirt has always been green
      I’ve never been willing
      to take the queen’s shilling
      I was just waving my inner jackeen

        Ah now Bisted, don’t be backtracking
        I now see, in what, you are lacking
        I’ll forgive you this time
        As you’re rather sublime
        No need to give your pantaloons a good cacking

    There once was a poster named Zena
    Who always wanted to be a ballerina
    That lovely white dress
    Is now quite a mess
    From a bad dose of diarrhea

      Who loved playing tunes on his Banjo
      By Banjo I mean *ock
      He’d give it a thwock
      Did that fiddling boy name of Jonjo.*

      *in original limericks, the first and last lines matched. Which made it a lot easier.

        has no reason to behave so crassly
        if a lad wants a go
        on his hairy banjo
        then leave him alone in the jaxy

    There once was a troll called Jonjo
    Who flounced about in a poncho
    He took a wee fall
    Off of his platforms so tall
    He’s no longer BS’s head honcho
