Creative Keys (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

When you’re whipping your verse into shape
And are caught in a verse-challenged scrape,
The delete key is handy.
Assisted by brandy,
And last, but not least, try escape.

(Prompted to escape)

    Ah yes, been there, done that.

    In addition to escape and delete
    never give into defeat
    your efforts will not go to waste
    if you try out the ole cut and paste

    And if all else fails, get hold of the computer
    Sweet-talk it, bring sense to it that your life depends on it.

    Wonderful! Love the advice….I’ll use my Moskato in lieu of brandy, but delete and escape…yes!!!!

    I’d put that one to song. But with my voice, it would probably be sung…off key :(

    Sometimes, it’s just not working – and you need to walk away. Nice take on escape.

    I never know
