Temper, Temper (Limerick & Haiku Prompt)
Today’s limerick and haiku theme is temper. First, my limerick:
Ode to An Ill-Tempered Felon
By Madeleine Begun Kane
A felonious fellow named Mort
Went to jail cuz his temper was short.
He assaulted a mime,
Committing his crime
(And his tort) with a bottle of Port.
And now my temper haiku:
Losing his temper,
He screamed, cursed, and hurled books.
I guess he found it.
Now, of course, it’s your turn. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write a limerick or haiku (or both) about temper. When you’ve posted your verse, please return here and add a direct link to your themed poetry, using Mr. Linky. There’s no rush, by the way, because you have a whole week to post it.
(Note: You may have noticed that my limerick contains some legal jargon. For more on poems containing specialized jargon, check out Read Write Poem.)
