Multitasking Mania (Limerick and Haiku Prompt 2)

Welcome to my 2nd Poetry Prompt. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write a limerick or haiku (or both) on this week’s theme, which is Multitasking. When you’ve posted your poem, please return here and add a direct link to your multitasking-related verse.

Here’s my multitasking limerick, which was inspired by this news story: Runny Pasta Sauce Nabs Hit And Run Driver.

Just Desserts
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It’s risky to drive while you eat,
Most especially pasta with meat:
Slurping red sauce is rash—
You might very well crash
And leave evidence trails head to feet.

And here’s my multitasking themed haiku:

Lectured to not do
Two things at once, he obeyed
And always did three.

(If you need some tips on limerick or haiku writing, I link to some helpful sites here.)

UPDATE: National Pasta Day is October 17 and World Pasta Day is October 25.

  1. Hi Mad,
    Multitasking’s Mad!
    Still haven’t had time to figure out Limericks yet but will get there in the end.

    An attempt on limerick only this time.

  4. patois says:

    Love that limerick. I think I saw you driving past.

  5. patois says:

    No reason for me saying you’d not given up. Just kind of joking — obviously doing a crappy job of it — as you’re only on your second prompt. I’ve known of a few that peter out, but they kinda weren’t good to begin with. I think you’ve got something very good in the making.

  6. Shephard says:

    I’m going to take your word for the first, and consider trying the second. :)
    Enjoyed them both!
