Not Quite my Art Form

Today is national limerick day. Both Nathan and Vince have made contributions – neither are entirely safe for work.

After ten minutes of noodling about, I can safely say that this is not my thing. I can approximate the meter but am completely lacking the humor part of the form.

There once was a game geek named Zach
Whose screen turned surprisingly black
But then he restarted
His crash was outsmarted
And now he continues to hack

A singer and actor named Ben
Auditioned for All the Kings’ Men
He dressed to the nines
and remembered his lines
He’s opening Friday at ten

There once were two dogs who stood guard
Both Panda and Murphy barked hard
Then they slept in
Missed all their bacon
And now they dig holes in the yard

    There once was a punster named Jeri
    who waited for the limerick fairy
    the fairy was absent
    or wanted some paid rent
    so Jeri wrote limericks anyway without any help at all from anybody,thank you very much.

    Your limericks are clever and made me laugh. Quite relevant to the named parties.
