Drimericks – Angels

Welcome to my new series – Drali Limericks, orΒ Drimericks! I know it will be a series because I’ve written more than one so far. I’ve rather optimistically categorised this as “Poems” πŸ™‚ . Each one will be accompanied by a beautifully crafted and professionally drawn DraliDoodleTM.

There once was a fellow named Derby
Who went on the rob on his Harley
But he never envisioned
He’d be caught and imprisoned
By Angels and some dude named Charlie.

    The world needs more limericks. And illustrated, too. It doesn’t get better than this!

      One day illustrated limericks will be classic literature.

    I thought limericks mentioned Nantucket
    And also something with a bucket
    But yours was a delight
    While my attempt is a fright
    So I’m just going to say…never mind!

    Seriously, good job and I am looking forward to this series πŸ™‚

      Are we having a “limerick-off” (like a dance-off but with limericks)? Cool! Your limerick is fun πŸ™‚
      I’m glad you liked it, I have another ready to go.

        I’ll go ahead and admit defeat in this contest. Rock on!

          Yay, thanks! I shall indeed rock on πŸ™‚

    πŸ™‚ I’m smiling over this. It’s good and reminds me of when I was younger…sitting round the supper table circling around making up limericks.
    You doodle quite well for a grown-up πŸ˜›

      That sounds like a fun supper table game!
      I’m a master doodler πŸ™‚

    LOL. Very clever. Am looking forward to more of these!

      Hopefully it will be a weekly thing πŸ™‚

    I like Limericks check out my friend who doesn’t call his writing limericks but they come close. http://wp.me/p28tjX-FO

      I’ve just read the interview you did with him, I’ll check out some of his work later, thanks!

    LOL I watched Charlie’s Angels just the other day on a flight from one side of Oz to the other. Love the illustration too πŸ™‚

    Ali, Looks like this series will be another winner. Supper doesn’t rhyme so I’ll write that I foresee it’ll be better than the limericks at dinner. I liked the Draili Doodles. Pieces are always classier when illustrated. Well done. πŸ™‚ —Susan

      Thanks! I think DraliDoodles have a certain charm all their own πŸ™‚

    Love the art work. ;0)

    and how schooled in the nuances of Brit pronunciation am i?! I knew the word was pronounced DAHRBY and not DERRBY.
    I am SO ready for my English Vacation, my bruvvah!

      Yay you!
      I’d actually forgotten that in the US words like “Derby” and “clerk” are pronounced with an “er” rather than “ahr” sound. I guess that means some of my US audience thought I’d mucked up the rhyme 😦
