Limerick Challenge – Friendship

August 2, 2016 36 comments

Here is my limerick for Mind And Life Matters’ limerick challenge. This week the topic is “friendship”, and we can write a limerick about a friendship with any person, animal or thing!

When I read that I knew what to write about and had it written within a couple of minutes :-).

My bestie, I have to admit
(‘Cos for me it’s a marvellous fit)
Is my PlayStation 4!
You must think me a bore
Do I care? No I don’t, not a bit.

Limerick Challenge – Antonyms

July 28, 2016 35 comments

Here is my limerick for Mind And Life Matters’ limerick challenge. This week it’s all about antonyms, so at least one of our lines must contain antonyms. To read all the other entries, click on the blue froggy!

I don’t know my ups from my downs
Nor even my smiles from my frowns
But there’s one thing I know
(It’s a bit silly, though)
I’m horribly frightened of clowns.

Limerick Challenge – Time Travel

July 21, 2016 39 comments

Here is a limerick I’ve written for Mind and Life Matters’ limerick challenge. This week’s prompt is “Time Travel“. To read this week’s other limericks, click on the blue froggy.

I had to cheat a bit by removing a couple of letters to make it scan properly 🙂

Trav’lling in time can be great
Though dangerous, ‘specially of late
If you travel too long
It can all go quite wrong
Then much worse than death is your fate!

 

Limerick Challenge Week 22

June 14, 2016 34 comments

Here is my limerick for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Poetry Challenge. This week, we have to start our limerick with the words “Once upon a time”.

This posed a challenge for two reasons – firstly, “upon” has too many syllables to make it read correctly, and secondly, I had no ideas! You have no idea how long I spent trying to rhyme “zombie”, “Abercrombie” and… something else. But I was determined to get a zombie in there somehow :-). Feel free to read “upon” as ‘pon if you’d like it to read better.

For this week’s other limericks, click on the blue froggy.

Once upon a time, I’ll explain
Lived a scientist, Igor by name
Sought his life to prolong
It went horribly wrong
Now he spends all his time eating BRAINS!

Mmm, yummy brains 🙂

Limerick Challenge – Wedding

June 6, 2016 40 comments

Here is my entry for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Poetry Challenge. This week the prompt word is “wedding”.

Here was my chance to try my hand at some romance, but sadly it wasn’t to be. After a couple of early extremely off-colour attempts, I ended up with this one. It all went a bit creepy, to be honest :-).

Click on the blue froggy for more entries!

Poor Freddy was jilted at church
Abandoned and left in the lurch
He tracked down his “bride”
With binoculars spied
And plotted revenge from his perch.

 

Limerick Challenge – Poor Dwight

June 2, 2016 49 comments

Here is a limerick I wrote for Mind and Life Matters’ limerick challenge! The prompt word for this week is “colour” (well, “color” actually).

I’ve pushed it a bit this time. I had to use “coder” because “programmer” has too many syllables (still a valid word but less frequently used perhaps) and I’ve assumed that a self-aware robot might reasonably regard said coder to be their mother. Ahem :-).

Click on the blue froggy to see this week’s other limericks!

There once was a robot called Dwight
Who saw life in stark black and white
When a coder, his “mother”
Switched his firmware to colour
His diodes blew up from the fright!

Limerick Challenge – Friday 13th

May 17, 2016 36 comments

Here is a little Limerick I wrote for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick challenge. This week the prompt is “Friday 13th”. In her own words:

“…your limerick must be based on Superstition or a Superstitious belief or something Supernatural. It can be scary, spooky, funny, sarcastic, satire anything you like so long as it follows the theme.”

To read the other fun Limericks, click on the blue froggy!

If a mirror broke Max made no fuss
“Superstition is nothing to us!”
A black cat crossed his path
He just stood there and laughed
Seconds later was hit by a bus.
