Itching To Write A Limerick

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

But though I was irritated by its unfamiliarity, I was itching to write a limerick. So here it is:

Itching To Write A Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

But they sometimes can be quite a bitch.

On my brain cells has stomped.
The mere thought of that word makes me twitch.
