|come on, play along, whydoncha?|
Sticking with simple poetic forms, let's wreak some limerick havoc. The Irish version of playing the "Dirty Dozens", in a past poetic life we'd have wonderful limerick wars on my online poet game group.
good morning my comrades in meter
this poeting couldn't be sweeter
i've loaded my pen
don't like 'em? use your deleter--
myself, i'm not so inspired.
my rhymer a little bit tired
but i have a prize
for a verse that draws flies--
back later to see what has transpired
so get going, and with grace and luck
your form here won't completely suck
if i like yours most
be watching the post
for goodies from the usp truck
(i hope this doesn't seem pressure.
do it for fun, for pure pleasure.
five lines, two rhymes
it's limerick time--
all to good end in good measure).
