A Tribute To Limerick Writers (limerick)

Who take pen in hand

And with jest make stand

In ponderous land of Cuckoo

      It takes talent to write limericks

      That end with a few unforeseen tricks.

      But writers are few,

      Not talented like you,.

      Just common hacks and no-talent pricks.

      Mhatter99, thanks for keeping limericks alive...

      Limerick writers undoubtedly few

      Oh, so scarce until I met you

      That doesn't matter

      There's you Mhatter

      And this is a tribute to you

      I second Wayne's notion! Whether I can write a limerick or not is questionable, but I'm surely Cuckoo for cocoa puffs! :-)

      Awesome!
