My “Limerick Ode to a Kilt-Wearing Man” Won A Prize

Here’s some cool news! I entered the 2012 Saline (MI) Celtic Festival Limerick Contest with my “Limerick Ode to a Kilt-Wearing Man.” Well it turns out that I won first prize in the Master Class (over 25) category.

I couldn’t attend the festival, but it sure sounds like a fun yearly event.

Here’s my winning limerick:

Limerick Ode to a Kilt-Wearing Man
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A man who was very well built,
Was naked except for his kilt.
He was flouting the regs,
As he flaunted his legs,
And willed certain parts not to wilt.

    Lol this reminded me of the Naked Cowboy of Times Square who has now turned into the Naked Indian and beats a drum…. I see him almost every day on my way to and from work.
