  This is a ryhme/limerick/.....that my sister and I made up using the characters from the film National Treasure.

Ben Gates the wise and knowing
Said to Riley the outgoing:

I seem to be in it up to my ears;
My prison sentence is for years.

Ian Howe has double-crossed me
He did not hear my earnest plea.

I tried to tell Sadusky
The truth about the key.

He would not listen to my voice -
He said he had no choice.

I have two doors to choose from:
I know that I must overcome.

And so I ask you to bring Miss Chase
And set me free from this horrid place.

I will leave you with one last thought:
You must do as you think you ought.
