Limerick Ode To Charles Dickens

Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens! (February 7, 1812 – June 9, 1870) And happy Charles Dickens Day!

Limerick Ode To Charles Dickens
By Madeleine Begun Kane

What day is today? The plot thickens:
It’s the birthday of author Charles Dickens,
Whose serial fiction
(For some an addiction)
Never suffered from slim verbal pickin’s.
