The Perils Of Thinking (Limerick)

Friday, March 19th, 2021

While thinking’s a fine thing to do,
Lately thoughts have been turning me blue.
They kick up a stink,
So I can’t sleep a wink.
(What a shame that there’s no one to sue.)

Happy “World Sleep Day!” (3rd Friday of March)

Limerick Ode To Chia

Saturday, March 23rd, 2019

Happy Chia Day! (March 23)

Gastric issues? Some recommend chia.
It might help; at least that’s the idea
To avoid constipation.
But measure your ration
Cuz ALSO not fun: DIARRHEA!

Happy Dentist’s Day (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

The dentist belonged to a faction
That would mouth off in ev’ry transaction.
One could never extract
Any manners or tact
From the man, which is why he’s in traction.

National Dentist’s Day is celebrated annually on March 6.

Is Age Just A Number? (Limerick)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Is age just a number? Who knows?
Some say “yes.” Others suff’ring the woes
Of senescence will wage
A war against age,
To disguise the “gifts” aging bestows.

Happy Age Is Just A Number Day! (March 22)

Happy French Language Day!

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Since it’s “French Language Day…” (March 20)

I once could speak French, but no more.
All its words fled my brain, though j’adore
Their pure tone — très charmant,
Which is just what I want
In la langue. Quel dommage mine’s so poor!

MY Kind Of St. Patrick’s Day Celebration (Limerick)

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

We’re off to a nice Bayside pub,
Where Mark will eat Irish-type grub.
I’ll eschew all the food,
But will alter my mood
Through libations — a spiritous sub.

Genius (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

A genius who’s famed for his brain,
Won’t deign to do chores. They’re his bane.
So he’ll handily coax
Help from generous folks;
His true gift’s palming off the mundane.

Happy Genius Day! (March 14)

Skirting Skirt-Racks (Limerick)

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

Though it’s “Skirt Day,” I’d rather wear pants,
Whether walking or trying to dance.
I’ll ponder and pause,
Lest I feature my flaws —
Flaws that skirts simply love to enhance.

Happy Dress Day (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

“You’re moving too much. Please hold still,”
Said a seamstress while sewing a frill
On a dress that was drab
And would never be fab,
Though it WOULD yield a fabulous bill.

Happy Dress Day! (March 6)

Name-Blame (Limerick)

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

It’s risky when parents show flair
In naming their child, so beware!
If you pick a bad name,
You may shoulder the blame
And the cost of a therapist’s stare.

Happy Celebrate Your Name Week (1st full week of March.)

Vet Your Doctors (Limerick)

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

A doctor would frequently treat
His patients as if they were meat.
“My patients are pigs,”
He’d proclaim from his digs
Near a farm, which was piglet replete.

Happy National Pig Day!

Happy Brothers Day! (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Oh brother! It’s Brothers Day. Wow!
I’ve got me a good one. And how!
With a heart off the chart
Arthur (now known as Art)
Is unrivaled. Please Art, take a bow.

Brothers Day (May 24) is actually meant to celebrate the bond between brothers. But since I missed Brother And Sister Day on March 26, and Siblings Day on April 10, this will have to do.

Is This Holiday An Achievement? (Limerick)

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

March 24 is International Day For Achievers.

To the “Day for Achievers,” say “Nay!”
It’s superfluous! Nix the hurray!
Why let praise-swelled heads spread?
My proposal, instead:
Let’s give UNDERachievers their day.

An Essential Holiday (Limerick)

Monday, March 21st, 2016

It’s essential to celebrate smells–
Just the good ones, of course; Nothing quells
A good mood like a stink,
Which might possibly shrink
The terrain where your fella’s brain dwells.

Happy National Fragrance Day! (March 21)

Remembering Memory Day

Monday, March 21st, 2016

While in law school I’d frequently curse
My poor mem’ry, which now’s become worse.
And this ain’t just a riff;
I’ll be jubilant if
I remember to finish this verse.

Happy Memory Day! (March 21)

Yet Another St. Patrick’s Day Limerick

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

On St. Patrick’s Day food I’m not keen.
Its corned beef and cabbage cuisine
Makes my stomach feel queer,
And the same goes for beer.
Partake… and I’ll surely turn green.

Get Over It? No Way! (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

Sorry, but I refuse to celebrate “Get Over It” Day. (March 9)

Dear pest, if you’re looking to irk,
Unsolicited counsel will work;
The “get over it” phrase
Is likely to raise
My hackles and drive me berserk.

Limerick Ode To National Proofreading Day (March 8)

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Today we should celebrate proofreading.
While not fool-proof, it helps avert goof reading.
And, like many, I’m vexed
By typo-strewn text
Found in poetry, fiction, and spoof reading.

Happy National Proofreading Day!

“Be Heard Day” (Limerick)

Monday, March 7th, 2016

Please don’t be deterred: It’s “Be Heard Day.”
(Some call it a “dumb and absurd day.”)
Being heard’s a great goal.
Staying mum takes its toll.
Don’t convert it to “message deferred” day.

Mark, To The Rescue (Limerick)

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

While many admire the spider,
To be candid, I can not abide ’er.
When I spied ’er last night,
I eyed ’er with fright
And begged hubby to please outside guide ’er.

(March 14th is National Save A Spider Day.)
