Ducking Controversy

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

“Sex with a duck” is bound to come up when the Limerick-Off rhyme word is “duck.” But I certainly didn’t expect a Facebook limerick argument over duck sex and animal rights.

Here was my light-hearted response to the dueling limerick writers:

I think sex with a duck would be foolish,
While sex with foie gras would be ghoulish.
With your species, please stick.
All else would be sick.
I’m strict about that, even mulish.

Silliest Haiku Ever?

Friday, March 28th, 2008

This may well be the silliest haiku I’ve ever written.  But I was determined to use all five words of Poefusion’s latest prompt in a haiku:

Not so winsome gal
Flings cranberries at her prey.
Can’t lose quacky ducks.

And speaking about poetry prompts, I’ve just posted a new one: Taxing Verse Limerick & Haiku Prompt.
