In Which I Write Some Clever Poetry
This morning, the Utilikilts fan page on Facebook started a limerick thread, with only one rule: no mention of blue ribbons. When I started reading what other people had submitted, I was amused by the rather loose interpretation of the limerick form many were using. Though usually close, many were straying from the strict A/A/B/B/A 8/8/5/5/8 meter, and one person even used a haiku form instead.
So, I decided to have a little fun with my submission….
Utilikits started a thread
of clever limericks to be read.
The meter’s confusing
so many were using
a hodgepodge of styles instead!
I’m rather proud of that, and so far, I’ve received nine ‘likes’ and one limerick(-ish) response praising my snark. Not bad!
