Gamey Limerick

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

This week’s challenge over at Poetry Jaam is to write something related to games. I hasten to add that the person described in my limerick is fictitious … at least I hope he’s fictitious.

Gamey Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A fellow who often played darts
Hated card games, especially hearts.
He threw like a pro,
Beating most every foe,
And distracted opponents with farts.

Once again, it’s Limerick-Off time. I hope you’ll join me in writing a limerick with this first line:

A guy who was drunk and lacked smarts…

Here’s mine:

Drunken Limerick (Drunken Limerick Audio)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A man who was drunk and lacked smarts
Was playing a bar game of darts.
His dart throw went wild
And he injured a child.
He should stick to a card game like hearts.

Please feel free to write your own limerick using the same first line and post it in my comments. And if you’re on Facebook, I hope you’ll join my friends in that same activity in my Facebook Limerick-Off post.
