Limericks, Limericks, and more…Memes?

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?

Absolutely nothing.

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!

    1. Yeah, I got a little carried away with the limericks. 😉
      Are you taking an English class right now or are you a teacher? (Just wondering…being nosey 😀 )


      1. You just made me laugh so hard! That was great! 😀 I’ve always wanted black hair (even when I was little) but considering my fair skin, I better not. I would end up looking like a vampire (which maybe that’s in style now???). *sigh* I guess some things just aren’t meant to be.


  1. I particularly enjoyed the poem about hair. Like the other limericks, it was fun. And maybe I relate from another direction. I have curly hair. It’s kind of wild and will never be tamed. Sometimes I wish it were straight. Though I’d don’t think I’d want to change it and smell like burnt hay. Really–that’s what happens? Thank you!


    1. I’m glad you enjoyed them! My brother has curly hair and I love it. I’m thinking, “Why didn’t I get the curly hair?” 🙂 But I’ve learned to appreciate people’s differences. There isn’t a right or wrong way to look. Both types look good in their own way.
      And yes, the chemical used to perm hair stinks really bad.

      1. Okay, I’ll avoid the chemicals and keep the hair as is. Ironically, my sister has perfectly straight hair. I like hers; it’s thick and manageable. You’re right, though–we are each made a certain way and should delight in that. Thanks!

I love hearing from you!
