Twabbles take up so little space and so very little time.
The least we can do, for the Doctor's grace, is to make 'em rhyme.

Thank you Varda.
Here's one I prepared earlier.

Invaders from a red planet sent the Eiffel Tower running. The tripods vowed to destroy all quadrapods. "NO PRISONERS".

I was called a prodigy, the best the school had seen.
So, I graduated and cursed it. I was very mean.
But, my record stands.

I pictured that all kinds of wrong: The Eiffel Tower lifts her iron skirt to run faster!

Thanks, y'all! It was originally a drabble and went all the way back to D'oh... but it was way, way too short, and there's really no way to pad something like this out and keep the meter.

Not bad but Grammar Nazi is enraged! :roll: There is a missing comma (or period) and quotation mark.

Also, might be more fun if it was something like: "Short-sighted, MoFo".

If instead of periods, women had apostrophes...
Then, they'd be more possessive and have more frequent contractions.

The doc said to eat 5 karats a day, for my eyesight. I'm broke now. Diamonds are an expensive habit.

As it is, they're more like Obama. If you like your opinion, you can keep your opinion. Period.

Cute.
Alas, perhaps the eyesight is bad. That is far short of twabble length.

You forgot to include the "to yourself".
