TRY WRITING A LIMERICK
How are you dealing with all of the stuff going on in your world right now?
Have you tried writing a limerick?
Here are some samples to get you going.
A painter who came from Great Britain
Hailed a lady who sat with her knittin’.
He remarked with a sigh,
“that park bench—well, I
Just painted it, right where you’re sittin.”
There was an old monk from Siberia
Whose existence grew drearier and drearier.
Till he broke from his cell
And with a super-loud yell
Eloped with the Mother Superior.
A goddess capricious is Fame.
You may strive to make noted your name.
But she either neglects you
Or coolly selects you
For laurels distinct from your aim!
No matter how grouchy you’re feeling,
You’ll find that a limerick is healing.
It grows in a wreath
All around the front teeth
Thus preserving the face from congealing.
