A Lemon Of A Limerick

A Lemon Of A Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“Turn lemons to lemonade?” Ugh!
Such advice sounds to me oh so smug.
No I won’t sugar-coat,
Cuz it sticks in my throat.
But turn lemons to lim’ricks? We’ll hug.

Happy National Lemonade Day! (For some odd reason, it’s celebrated both on August 20th and on the first Sunday of May.)

    Though to some lemonade is sublime
    I much prefer tartness from lime.
    But the tartness is best
    When it comes from Mae West,
    Who says, “Come up and see me sometime!”

  2. JazzBumpa says:

    I pondered this thought for an hour
    With all of my limerick power:
    The great effort that’s made
    To squeeze sweet lemonade;
    But sadly they both came out sour

    There’s a syndrome that’s called “empty nest”.
    You’ve got rid of the kids and can rest.
    But something’s not right,
    Now they’re out of your sight,
    Mother-henning is put to the test.
