Angrycat's Limerick Lamenting Fentanyl/Heroin mix

Fentanyl, which is 100X more powerful than morphine, has turned up in Western PA and other places in the Mid-Atlantic, resulting in many overdoses and several deaths. It goes under the names of Theraflu and Bud Ice. Don't do it.  Phillip S. Hoffman died of the regular kind of heroin, apparently, but don't do that either, obvs:

There's a new brand of smack: Theraflu
But you should find another drug to do
Because it's mixed with stuff
That makes survival tough
Avoid friends finding you dead and blue.

Angrycat's limerick lamenting SEPTA's trials in the bitter cold

SEPTA has a hard time in the cold
One might think it's 'cause El is so old
No, the new trains are failures
All those Regional Rail-ers
The cold makes it so the doors can't unfold.

Angrycat's limerick celebrating kayak rescue of dog trapped on icy Delaware

There was a pit bull, name of Duke
Duke was far too easy to spook
Ran onto frozen river
The poor dog could but shiver
But a kayak saved Duke; wint'ry fluke.

Angrycat's limerick commemorating baby born on sled

A Pennsylvania baby was born on a sled during our most recent snowstorm:

Foot of snow, felt like minus fifteen
And the dad bought a sled that was lime-green
For the baby was due
In the sled the mom flew
Not long after came newborn babe's first screams

Angrycat's limerick lamenting life in the Polar Vortex

All aboard on the clipper snow train
It's a weather trend that brings much pain
Endless Arctic snow storms
Old Man Winter's hell forms
As we huddle and pray for mere rain.

Angrycat's limerick commemorating the train derailment last week over the Schuylkill River

The derailment included six cars full of crude oil, which thankfully did not leak:

A freight train on a bridge on the Schuylkill
Almost tipped over; fears of a big oil spill
Oil's explosive; oh no!
Seems train driving is a valu'ble skill.

Angrycat's limerick celebrating Guv Corbett's fleeing from Central High school students and demonstrators

Our Guv Corbett would speak at a high school
But he canceled, said, 'must not lose my cool'
'They will drown out my message,
How I've led with such courage'
And the Keystone State cries out, 'don't lie, fool.'
