I Won’t Sit Still For This (Limerick)

On November 7, I read an article about the latest, stupid Internet obsession: the Mannequin Challenge.

Needless to say, I wrote a limerick about it. However, I never posted my verse because … the election. Sigh…

Anyway, when Mark stumbled across this SNL Mannequin Challenge clip, I unearthed my buried-under-a-vale-of-tears limerick:

The #MannequinChallenge is here.
Strike a pose and don’t move. Persevere!
You may look like a fool,
But your pics will be cool,
Causing Instagram props to appear.

    Be Still, My Ass ~
    Frozen in time and in space,
    With a nothingness look on my face,
    Not a mannequin. No –
    Just the cubicle woe
    That I wear day-by-day: My workplace.

    Spanking and Our Gang ~
    Not long ago there was Planking
    But it seem Mannequinning’s ourtranking
    Such ven’rable appeal
    With venereal zeal.
    So I ask, “What come’s next?” Let’s hope Spanking!

    Bide Thy Time ~
    Although standing stock-still ain’t easy,
    And you’ll find some spectators get queasy,
    Do Nothing: Start Now –
    (But you Can’t take a bow).
    You’ll get more Posts and Twits if it’s sleazy.

    Then I pose for that vast Cyberspace.
    As I contemplate skin
    Plus my saggy-bag chin
    There’s no glamour, but more In-Your-Face!
