Acrostic Limerick: Hot, Cross Lovers

Last month I had such a good time writing these two acrostic limericks, that I had to try another in response to a new prompt from Acrostics Only.

Acrostic Limerick: Hot, Cross Lovers
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A flexible gal who is spry,
Gymnastically gifted, and sly
Initiates sex,
Leaves her lovers as wrecks —
Enticing, entrapping — oh my!

UPDATE: April 23 is Lover’s Day

    Nicely Mad, the acrostic works so well with the Limerick form, I bet you’ll be on the lookout for cool five letter words now…

    Is it me or did it just get a little warmer in here?

    A flexible gal who is spry,
    got her big toe stuck in her eye

    after pulling it out
    she started to pout

    yoga does now make her cry

    This is so funny! Don’t know if I’ll get a chance to write this week. I’m brain-frazzled after a two-day drive and facing 4 months worth of unpaking! Arrgh.

  13. In the mental agility stakes, you are the front runner.

  14. Excellently done.

    My heart goes out to Mad Kane
    Kindly humorous laureate, keeps you sane
    After all that she’s said
    Never early to bed
    Ever searching for the world’s best refrain.

  16. Dick says:

    Mastery of the medium and funny too!

  19. Tumblewords says:

    HA! Acrostic limericks are very like patting one’s head while rubbing the tummy. You’re talented and brave.

  20. Hot is right. Nice work.

  21. Cathy says:

    Great job! and funny too.
