Limerick. A humorous, frequently bawdy, verse of three long and two short lines rhyming aabba, popularized by Edward Lear.
Source: Wikipedia

Entry 1:

There was an old Scot named McNish
Whose anger the Boss did unleash
For he shot his dear cat
He would not forgive that
'Twas a grudge that never found peace.

Entry 2:

There was an explorer called Scott
Who found England incredibly hot
So he hurried down south
With his pipe in his mouth
To cool off in an ice ridden spot

Entry 3:

When Wilson was signed on by Scott,
Far more than a doctor was got:
Bill sledged with the crew,
And painted and drew
The beauty of that frozen spot.

Entry 4:

Explorers are what we've become
But mostly from armchairs, though some
Have donned snow sunglasses
And frozen their asses,
As told at the South Pole-sium.
