My Reluctant Limerick Ode To Spring

Spring’s here. The weather’s great! I have nothing to bitch about. What’s a poor limerick writer to do?

My Reluctant Limerick Ode To Spring
By Madeleine Begun Kane

In previous years, I would blast:
“Spring’s arrived. Please tell winter it’s passed.
“Cuz it seems not to know —
“We are still getting snow!”
I’m aghast — can’t lambaste — spring came fast.

    When spring arrives, I hear the ding!
    Of grim truths as the mosquito sings
    The frogs arrive and the snake
    Looks for a feast, for God’s sake
    Flied lice, flog legs, do you hear the Chinese cook sing?
