In-Box Overload (Limerick)

In-Box Overload (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

My in-box is filled to the brim.
The sight of it’s making me grim.
And my virtual box
Is likewise a pox.
Mail has stamped out my zip and my vim.

(Prompted By One Single Impression’s “Inbox.”)

    … It’s sent to lessen your plight-
    Madkane-inbox is now full,
    No more space in her spool.
    She’s bothered, let us help
    So that she can never yelp.
    Co-operation is the only rule.

    My inbox is filled to the brim.
    I ignore it and head to the gym.
    But when I come back,
    it remains a sad fact,
    that relief from the sorting is grim.

    (You’ve created a limerick monster! ^_^)

  3. A fellow found his in-box of late
    Held Russians in search of a mate,
    Some penile enhancements,
    Nigerian advancements
    And twelve viruses, lying in wait.

  5. Put Haikus on Mad Kane’s limerick site and praying will not save you.

    My inbox is full to the brim
    There’s one way of making it slim
    Inbox and delete
    Must merger and meet
    My in’s will be out’s at my whim.

    keep the pot a’ boilin’ Maddie.
