Death to a Silly Limerick


A yada da dada da bada
A bada da cada da cada
B well be swell
B closer to hell
A dada da fada da mada

I shall need a doctor’s excuse
This limerick has become a noose
Surely I have become sick
I want to throw up in a tip
That’s it I’m calling a truce.

Someone please make it stop
This gibberish is really a flop
I can’t stop giggling
My minds just a wriggling
Without end my brain will pop.

This poetic device should be fun
Honestly, I’m dying to run
I question my existence
I’ve lost my resistance
I’d rather admit I’m outdone.

Writing has made me belligerent
I put myself in this predicament
I’ll shift the blame to a stink bug
That’s drowned itself in my water mug
Fate tells me that was no accident.

A dada da dada da dada
A bada ba bada ba bada
B still be well
B the limerick’s farewell
A cada ca cada ca cada

This blogger can write a limerick:

      1. “down on the banks of the hankey pank
        where the bullfrog jumps from bank to bank
        with a splish a splash and a belly flop
        little missed and went kerplop”
        I bounce child and “drop” them part way with the kerplop…. once they get the idea they love it.

      2. you are west coast too. I’m in Washington, Olympic Peninsula. My sleep has been weird since I got sick in May last year — I sleep normal length of time but if stressed I want to go to sleep at 8 pm. I did family practice obstetrics for 18 years, so I don’t worry if I get up at some weird hour…..

      3. My unnamed hero is young boy turned young adult. Human, flawed, haunted, redeemed so far I have encountered redundancy, like in a bad eighties’ song. I have three versions. Each worse, than the last. I had an idea for an epic type of hero, but without deities it kinda falls flat.

      4. ….so you need a deity? What’s wrong with that? I’m thinking of “Good Omens” where pollution had replaced plague in the four horseman….

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
