Limerick Goals

Three Word Wednesday asks us to write a poem using these three words: Amuse, Excite, Sincere. So I’ve used them in a limerick describing my goal in writing political limericks in my other blog.

Limerick Goals
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’m sincere in expressing my views
And I try to excite and amuse.
I ain’t always polite:
It’s my duty to smite
Evil pols with each lim’rick j’accuse.

    You certainly get your messages over! There must be a lot of grist to your mill in America at the moment!

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments!

    Jj, Hank’s interview, which included shout-outs to some poets (you, me, a few others) is here.

    Gosh, to think it was on for only a day! Just as for your humor blog I would try to respond on JJ’s too, every time. Both are unique in your own particular ways. You with your limericks and JJ with his sincere and open stance.

    I’ve followed your political blog but not every time. It’s heavy and I’m not familiar with the political scene. But with the re-election months away it’s going to be fun. Will put it on my blog list forthwith to make sure. Thanks Ma’am!

  11. Paige says:

  14. You made my rain filled drab day so bright!!


    Meditating for being one with you

  15. Jack says:

    If only I could smite by typing…

  16. viv blake says:

    Brilliant. Evil pols? Is there any other kind? :-)

  17. Love the final French flourish after proclaiming your abhorrence of the evil in politics!

  18. K. McGee says:

    Aren’t they all evil?

    It is my opinion that there is much power in the pen, and you indeed seize that power!

  19. Mary says:

    I think you achieve your goals quite well indeed!

  20. nan says:

    Ha! Any particular ‘rick you are accusing ;-) ?

  21. Gordon G. says:

    Great lighthearted reading!

    Keep on smiting! (And I am political science major, and I share your sentiments)

  22. PhotoDiction says:

    a smile with my morning coffee – how nice of you to entertain us so :)

  23. Serena says:

    I too think polite is over-rated… this made me smile. Thank you.

  24. Politeness is overrated! Love your humor!

  25. Rachel says:

    Love the language switch at the end! :)

    A golfer, a bit of a nut,
    Lived in golf-green, grass hut.
    He could not master the putter
    And was oft heard to mutter,
    “I’m entrenched on the wrong side of the cut!”
