Science Fiction Limericks

A friend challenged me to come up with science fiction themed clean limericks. The first is self-contained. The second is a two parter in limerick form. Enjoy.

Harry Android dreamt Of Electric Sheep

After counting them while trying to sleep

Inspiring his mate to write a book

Then Great Scott, some film maker took

Up the name Bladerunner – Do androids weep?

And

Pistachio Peeler X V 4

Started questioning what they did it for

The droids went on strike

Bosses asked what they would like

The robots didn’t know for sure

Pistachio Peeler Pete X V 4 struts

Up and down the union meeting huts

Until they throw him in the pistachio machine

Which they say is all safe and clean

But your pistachios may contain nuts.

I think I actually prefer science fiction in poetic form than as prose!

Those were very good. I've tried writing limericks before, but I think all I managed was the first line.
