Why I Write Limericks (Limerick)

Brian over at DVerse Poets asks us why we write:

Why I Write Limericks (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I write cuz I don’t have a choice.
I’m simply compelled to give voice
To distress through my humor:
This angst-ridden boomer
Must in whimsy and lim’ricks rejoice.

Angst-Ridden Limerick (Acrostic Limerick)

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

This month Acrostic Only asks for an acrostic limerick featuring the word ANGST. (An acrostic limerick spells out a word via the first letter of each line.)

So now you know why this limerick is definitely NOT funny:

Angst-Ridden Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Anxiety, fear, apprehension
Neurotically fill me with tension.
Getting out of my chair—
Somehow going somewhere
Tends to help with depression prevention.
