Demas finds limericks a challenge and has crafted a few that even have chuckles. Of the bunch you can choose from he offers these:

I'm still waiting in the wings.

For all their hoot and holler,

for all their rant and rave,

when it comes to my own dollar

politicians always crave,

I'm a thumbs down, happy staller.


Like Simple Simon at the Fair,

with "pie in the sky" everywhere,

their promised "Change"

of the widest range,

they simply have not any.


Today's Tax Code,

with its heavy load,

Immigration Reform

not even lukewarm,

offer warts from a different toad.



For a candidate happy,

who does things snappy.

no matter their sex or style,

I'll give my saved dollar,

And then I will holler,

"Good government sure took awhile!"

      One good thing about writing a "Limerick of the Day" is that you, the writer, can give yourself a little fun too!

      I love this new idea. The limerick of the day is definitely well worthwhile.
