Limerick Ode To Greed

As I’ve mentioned previously, my pal Patrick McGuire runs a weekly Unfinished Limerick Contest. The latest finished oddly, as explained in this … uh … press release. And I’m proud to say I garnered an Honorable Mention, despite having broken just about all of the contest’s rules. How did I pull off this feat? You’ll just have to read Patrick’s blog.

Here’s my entry:

Limerick Ode To Greed
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Tis the season to make lots of cash
For business, for God. Got a stash?
Yes, ain’t it ironic
That greed is so chronic?
We worship the gods of mall trash.

    Nice one! They seem to have validated your poetic license.

    ‘Tis the season to pump up the stock
    Of Business! I mean God! What a crock.
    With no jobs to support us
    Corps and gov still exhort us
    Go and spend! Our we’ll all be in hock!
