Limerick Poseur
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A guy who was quite over-sexed
Stood posing, his muscles all flexed.
With eyes that undressed him
She stared, then assessed him:
“You’ve got to be kidding! Who’s next?”

Decomposed Limerick

This isn’t a formal Limerick-Off. But feel free to “borrow” my first line, if you’re so inclined.

Decomposed Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A gal who was putting on airs
Kept attracting a great many stares.
It seems that her dress
Under strain and duress
Had split on her way down the stairs.

While her garb suffered decomposition,
She appeared not to know her condition.
She assumed that those glances
Were ill-bred advances —
Not gapes at her clothing’s attrition.

Feeling Silly … And Sore

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

My lifelong klutziness is starting to get on my nerves. Okay, I don’t complain when I fall while trying to swing dance. Not too much, anyway. After all, there’s assumption of risk involved. But just the other day I managed to fall off a folding chair. And that’s plain stupid … not to mention, embarrassing:

Feeling Silly … And Sore (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

If I fall while I dance, I don’t care:
It’s a case of swing dancer, beware.
But my clumsiness irks
When I’m one of those jerks
Who foolishly falls off a chair.
