A creative young woman named Ro…

Creative Verse
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A creative young woman named Ro
Snagged a role in an Off-Broadway show.
She could sing, dance, write verse,
Paint and bake, but her curse
Was she never could raise any dough.

Please feel free to write your own limerick using the same first line and post it in my comments. And if you’re on Facebook, I hope you’ll join my friends in that same activity in my Limerick-Offs.

    A creative young woman named Ro
    Took her easel wherever she’d go;
    In the subway, the mall
    Or the ladies room stall . . .
    Inspiration’s like lightning, you know.

  2. Jesse Levy says:

    A creative young woman named Ro
    Had a hard time making any dough.
    She couldn’t sell her works
    And the critics were jerks
    So she thought she’d give hooking a go.

  3. Dr. Goose says:

    A creative young woman named Ro
    Wondered how would the melody go
    If the orchestra played
    A Baroque serenade
    In the style of Bert Brecht or Milhaud?

    An Ode to Miss Ro from Beaufort

    A creative young woman named Ro
    Slipped into a freighter en route to Oslo
    She hid in the hold
    Faced miseries untold
    The rats, not really, but the sailors in the know!

    When the creative lady reached port
    The sailors hung her up by her coat
    From the hold’s hoist
    And her eyes became moist
    It was not Oslo, she was back in Beaufort

    Creativity, being back in her good old city
    Took a leap, dumped into the Atlantic Sea
    She swam in the nude
    Amid remarks rather lewd
    As she waded in, she knew she was not Pamela Anderson, what a pity!

    So Ro was back, they welcomed her home,
    Her husband, the poor remorseful gnome
    Knew he could chew
    This woman, as men do
    But she hammered his head in time to a metronome!

    Beaufort, you would miss Mrs. Ro
    For she is always on the go
    Sometimes seen
    In Halloween
    And sometimes by her husband’s grave in Buffalo

    None know as Miss Ro will know
    When they sent her to the gallows
    The reason for her trip
    The smile on her lip
    Would stay, and her skirt? Oh! Oh!

    These are certainly fun! Robin, you create quite the image. And Dr. Goose, I love your musical references.

  6. Peter Metrinko says:

    A creative young woman named Rho
    Loved the Greek language, and so
    For dessert she loved pi
    She said with a psi
    “Made with filo and no other dough.”*

    *Last line from David Lefkovitz

  7. A creative young woman name Ro
    was pretty and loaded with dough
    and loved single men,
    but now and again,
    a group of men made her glow.

  8. Mark Kane says:

    A creative young woman named Ro…
    Loved to tantalize Randy, her beau.
    She would dance for his pleasure,
    And tease for good measure,
    Then enjoy the results of her show.

  9. Steve Bumgarner says:

    A creative young woman named Ro
    Who, when told to “Stop it!”, said “NO!!!”.
    She flung paint ‘gainst the wall
    (Really had quite a ball.)
    When Ro hung it, she won “Best of Show”.

  10. debby says:

    A creative young woman named Ro
    Met a sailor on special furlough
    His uniform with kissing
    Led to bed – no resisting
    Where her creative juices did flow…

    (Daisy is SUCH a bawdy dog!)

  11. “Men Don’t Make Passes at Girls Who Wear Glasses?”

    A creative woman named Ro
    Had trouble keeping a beau.
    And though she was pretty
    And her poems quite witty,
    Her boyfriends inevitably would go.

  12. Lurker says:

    A creative woman named Ro…
    With a smile, shake her hips to and fro
    She is fat, thighs would smack
    Backless dress, show her crack
    Kmart Sexy, her real name is Joe

  13. Patrice of the ManyCats says:

    A creative young woman named Ro
    Teased her whole life ’bout boats, don’cha know
    Cried one day, “That’s enough!
    When the Ro-wing gets tough
    Change your name: I’m now Roquefort Snow.”
