I always hear snippets of "The Waste Land" in my head. ("Sweet Thames, run softly till I end my song, / Sweet Thames, run softly though I speak not loud or long.") So I had to laugh out loud when I discovered "Waste Land Limericks" by Wendy Cope. Scroll down the page and read all five (which correspond to the five sections of "The Waste Land"). I especially like Section 3. Also, if you want to brush up on the original, I found it here, with hypertext links for the notes, which is pretty cool.
