Happy Defy Superstition Day – Sept. 13

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

I wrote this limerick in honor of Defy Superstition Day:

On this day, let’s defy superstitions;
We should spurn all those stern admonitions
About opals, black cats,
Mirrors, ladders, and hats.
Play it safe, though: Avoid politicians.

Open Limerick to Super Bowl Fans

If the game goes from boring to worse,
Don’t bother to sob or to curse.
Sublimation works well.
Be creative as hell:
Snap some photos, sketch, paint, or write verse.

This Will Turn Into A Limerick … Knock On Wood

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Poetic Asides prompts us to write a “knock on wood” poem. So I’m tempting fate with this one:

This Will Turn Into A Limerick … Knock On Wood
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I often will say, “knock on wood,”
And I WOULD knock on wood, if I could.
But it’s rarely around,
So instead I stomp ground,
In the hope it will do me some good.

Superstitious Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Superstitions don’t do any good.
Avoid them? I’d say that you should.
They’re irrational fears
And they merit our sneers.
I must go now and knock on some wood.
