Limerick Lament

Limerick Lament
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There are times that I feel like a tool,
Complying with each lim’rick rule.
So starting today
I refuse to obey.
Don’t believe me? You’re right. April Fool!

(My 2nd National Poetry Month poem, and it’s still April 1st. Yippee!)

    The tone of your limerick made me drool
    What with breaking all the rules
    With great dismay
    I found it a special day
    Sure pulled one over on this old fool.

    Thanks so much to all of you for your kind words. And thanks Hansi for your limerick. Oh and Victoria, in answer to your question, sometimes it does feel like I think in limericks. Scary, huh? :)

    yep… we are all tools once in a while
    some more often than others
    some more useful than others, too!
