    I can't actually post a website address here, but if you google "latin phases quotes uk" you should find fairly high on the list a site at the University of Liverpool that has a lot of expressions covering an assortment of subjects. With a little ingenuity, you might be able to weave one or two of these into a short poem. Also, try googling "Latin tongue twisters": again, you might find some inspiration there. There's also a very large number of one-liners at the site you should find if you google "Sit vis vobiscum" ("May the force be with you")

    ...which includes such useful phrases as:

    Radix lecti (Couch potato)
    Fabricati diem (Make my day)
    Lege et lacrima (Read it and weep)
    Ne auderis delere orbem rigidum meum! (Don't you dare erase my hard disk!)
    Res melius evinissent cum coca (Things go better with Coke)
    Purgamentum init, exit purgamentum (Garbage in, garbage out)
    Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari? (How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?)
