Tasty Books (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Please don’t tell me you’re “moved” by a book,
Cuz I surely won’t give it a look.
I love thrillers and wit,
But abstain from chick lit
And spurn texts that explain how to cook.

    Don’t tell me you’re “moved” by a book,
    That is filled with such gobbledygook.
    With each page detailin’,
    The deep thoughts of Miss Palin
    The dim-witted, tea-baggin’ schnook.

    Don’t tell me you’re “moved” by a book,
    It’d not be the one that I took
    Of reading, I’m tired
    By pictures, inspired
    All the rest can stay right in the nook

    The collectibles are my pleasure
    The photojournalist’s treasure
    They cover my coffee table
    I peruse them when I’m able
    They bring a joy I can hardly measure

    In the past my preferences varied
    But then, my life was less harried
    A good novel or story
    Could keep me in glory
    But my life changed when I got married

    Now it seems life is filled with drama
    Working, being a wife and a mama
    When a little time I have
    Those pictures are like a salve
    To my soul. OH! The panorama!
