A Limerick About Nothing

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

I just found out that this week (May 1 through May 7) is National Pet Week. So I thought I’d celebrate with a canine limerick:

A Limerick About Nothing
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A fellow who owned a pet dog
Took him out for a walk in the fog.
Soon the man and his hound
Were back home safe and sound,
Where he wrote up their walk on his blog.

UPDATE: Happy “Walking The Dog Day.” (February 22)

Haunted By Haiku

Warning to those here for their daily dose of “funny.” Most of these aren’t. Sorry!

My passionate hunt
for humor in the mundane—
a chastening quest.

*****

Vulgar temptation
haunts, tantalizes, prevails—
beats dainty retreat.

*****

Passionate and raw
feelings too painful to root
escape on breached wings.

*****

Integrity fights
a war against temptation—
battles to a draw.

*****

A thought tempts, glimmers,
says “explore me,” then wings off—
never to return.

*****

Marching to the beat
of your own drum may work best
in solo parades.

*****

To those who ask me
how I remember my verse—
that’s what blogs are for.

Thanks to these prompts for their inspiration: Carry On Tuesday, Haiku Heights, Haiku Wednesday, LoL Prompts, One Single Impression, Poetic Asides, Sunday Scribblings, and Three Word Wednesday.

Bloggers’ Rhapsody (Can Be Sung To Gershwin’s “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off”)

Tuesday, August 8th, 2006

You praise my weblog
And I’ll mention your blog.
You link my weblog
And I’ll link to your blog
Weblog,
Your blog,
Weblog,
Your blog,
Let’s call the whole thing off.

You laud my rampage
On Bush’s last outrage.
You say I’m so sage,
Go check out my web page. …
