A Tribute To Limerick Writers (limerick)

Updated on May 10, 2013

This limerick’s written for you

You limerick writers so few

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! :-)
