Beguiling Verse

This week Writers Island prompts us to use the word beguile in a poem. So here’s my Beguiling Limerick:

Beguiling Verse
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A gal who was very beguiling
Was always so charmingly smiling,
That she duped many men
Yet again and again.
Now they’re lined up in court for a filing.

    A woman who could always beguile
    led me at once down the aisle
    She tricked me you see
    because I thought that she
    would constantly give me that smile

    But now I see I was duped
    And fighting with her has me pooped
    I’d just like to leave
    but she’s holding my sleeve
    Now into this marriage I’m cooped.

    There’s a gal named Mad “Citizen” Kane
    Whose limericks drive us insane.
    We’ve asked her to stop,
    Even gave her a WHOP!
    But nothing will make her abstain.

    All the best

    A wry lady, with limericks beguiling
    Seduced others to try verse-compiling
    A fine way to stay young,
    With rhymes on the tongue
    To keep a community smiling
