A Limerick Affair

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Once again, it’s Limerick-Off time. And that means I write a limerick, and you write your own, using the same first line. Then you post your limerick here and, if you’re a Facebook user, on Facebook too.

So I hope you’ll join me in writing a limerick with this first line:

“I’m sorry I had an affair” …

Here’s mine:

A Limerick Affair
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“I’m sorry I had an affair,”
Said a man to his wife in despair.
“Please forgive me — I’m bad.”
She said, “Never, you cad.”
“I warned you before — I don’t share.”

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.

To receive an email alert whenever I post a new Limerick-Off, please send me an email requesting the alerts. You’ll find my email address on the upper right sidebar, in the “Author” section just below my Limerick-Offs button. Thanks!

The Couple That Reads Together…

Mac|Life Magazine is running a limerick-writing contest with a cool prize — a Wacom Intuos3 6×8 tablet.  The contest rules, which you can find here, include using the name Mac|Life within your limerick.

Here’s my submission:

A tech-savvy husband and wife
Once suffered occasional  strife:
When their fav’rite mag came
First dibs was their aim.
Their solution? Two subs to Mac|Life.
