Complete the Limerick II

Question

Without further ado:

Pushing to the limit you'll cry foul,

Receiving either nothing or -holy cow!

But if up and down jive,

With joy you'll derive,

It's time to use ______.

Sliding smoothly down a dragon's spine,

Straddling equally both sides of the line,

Branches without a tree,

To live in harmony,

One must follow the path of the ______.

The suspect's complex of soul,

Even if his story has a hole,

Look for a clue,

Follow the residue,

And you'll come upon his ______.

If you delight in the writing of Zola,

Or are mesmerized by the curves of Lola,

Throw a ball,

Let it fall,

And appreciate the resulting ______.

Life's wheels on wheels turn upon,

Like a French roulette to gamble on,

When you're a part,

Stay true to your heart,

Remember the shape of a ______.


Enjoy ;).

When you're a part,
Stay true to your heart,
Remember the shape of a limacon. -DD
