Acrostic Limericks In Vogue?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Very stylish young gals were out walking
On the streets of Manhattan, while talking.
Guys were tempted to cheer:
Undergarments were clear.
Even women who saw them were gawking.

UPDATE: I just realized I’ve written seven acrostic limericks in the last couple of months. Perhaps I can postpone senility, after all.

Decomposed Limerick

This isn’t a formal Limerick-Off. But feel free to “borrow” my first line, if you’re so inclined.

Decomposed Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A gal who was putting on airs
Kept attracting a great many stares.
It seems that her dress
Under strain and duress
Had split on her way down the stairs.

While her garb suffered decomposition,
She appeared not to know her condition.
She assumed that those glances
Were ill-bred advances —
Not gapes at her clothing’s attrition.

Not-So-Stylish Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’ll admit that I’m not into clothes.
And I don’t follow style, heaven knows.
My apparel’s so old
It’s back “in”— so I’m told.
I’m half-tempted to strike up a pose.
