Dear Newbie (Limerick & Haiku Prompt)

Today’s limerick, haiku, and senryu theme is blogging. First, my limerick, which was inspired by The Ominous Comma’s request for humorous advice for new bloggers:

Dear Newbie
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Newbie, I feel for your plight —
You are anxious for links to your site.
But please do not send
Link requests, when you’ve penned
A mere pittance of blog posts, all right?

And now my haiku (senryu):

My blog bullies me,
Demanding ideas, words, wit.
This will have to do.

Now, of course, it’s your turn. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write some verse about blogging. When you’ve posted your poem(s), 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 until July 18th to post it.

  1. Hey Mad;
    Happenned on your blog through technorati while looking for inspiration for getting my writing juices flowing on corporate/office humor.
    Didnt really get corporate humor from your last couple of posts, but couldn’t resist leaving a limerick on (although it’s not really my thing)

    Nice joint you have here. And in the immortal words of Guv. Arnold, “Aaaiii can’t dance. Aaaiiii can’t walk. OH-nly thing about me is the way that I walk.”
    No sorry it was “I’ll be Beethoven”
    No wait. It was Bach. Yup. “I’ll be Bach.”

  2. Oops.
    I left a link to my blog, but it wasnt the permalink.
    What can I say – I’m an idiot.
    Heres the link to the post with the limerick.

    My apologies
