I’ve never written a limerick before
Trying to think of one makes my head quite sore
I’m not cut out to write a limerick
I’m not any good—such a maverick
Now that I’m done, I think I’ll write more
Well I’ll have to write at least one more because that one wasn’t on the topic we were given for Writing 101. So, here’s one that’s on topic: imperfections.
My hair is too straight they say
But I can make it look another way
The salon gives me a perm
A strand of hair, like a curly worm
Now my hair is frizzy and smells like burnt hay
And here are some more just because I don’t feel like stopping, and because I miss my memes (I haven’t used a single one in the last four posts…Don’t suck up all the oxygen with all that gasping 🙂 ).
What does a limerick have to do with my sorrow from meme absence?
Until I had this brilliant idea! I can use memes as inspiration for limericks! (You just thought this poetry course would give me some sophistication and give you a break from all those memes. Sorry, there’s no escaping the memes…or my unsophisticatedness)
Think you’re an awesome hotshot
Cooler than Tony Stark’s robot
But expensive clothing
Brings nothing but loathing
Doesn’t bring the acceptance you sought
All twelve pins down in one shot
So far away—each a small dot
This skill is legit
Sharper than a drill bit
Stand next to the defeated foes and look hot
I’m having way too much fun with this! 🙂
But I have to stop now and work on my top-secret-choose-your-own-adventure-story thingy (Yeah, maybe I need to work on that name).
If you don’t know what I’m talking about…. Quick rehash: I took a poll a few weeks ago and there was a lot of interest in the choose your own adventure idea, so I’m going to take a deep breath, plunge into these unknown waters, and to do it. I’m busy coming up with the story right now. I know it’s going to be a fantasy story with a bit of a mystery going on, but I haven’t finished the plot.
Thank you all for voting this idea in. I’m having so much fun with this and I can’t wait to share it with you!
