Poetry--Limerick--Anti Twilight (the series)

Updated on August 12, 2012

Intro

Poetry challenge for me today was to do a Limerick. I have never done a limerick before so it is a good thing that of some my HubPages friends do such as Josh and Martin, because I had to take a crash course. I only had 15 mins to do this...it took me 5 mins just to figure the rules.

The Limerick had to be Anti-Twilight. I have never read the Twilight books and only watched part of the first movie. Good thing, my daughters were experts and I got the gist. Unlike other challenges I was not allowed a revision, so this is both a draft and final copy.

Anti Twilight (the series)

Source

A werewolf and a vampire who are so lame

Yet each day they manage to rise in fame

When asked about the book

Shrugged, "Is that the new Nook?"

Hmmm, I wonder if Bella is the one to blame!

      Patty,you did well. Those movies are so bad and watered-down. They certainly do not deserve their fame and fortune. We will keep appreciating the classic vampire and werewolf movies. We will always have many to choose from. I voted up for sure. COO!

      Josh, Just like you are the master of Limericks and Michelle is at Haiku's, I am will aware of my place!!! :D However, I was rushed when doing the intro...refresh and it will reflect you...lol...Limericks are truly challenging and with so many rules...I will be doomed if ever I were challenged to do a Haiku!!! As always though, I truly do appreciate the support!!! Thank-you soooo very much!!!

      Always think of this as a teens thing, Patty!! I guess it must be Bella and her looks. Oh well! That's TV for you. I once had to confiscate a bunch of twilight books from under a student's table. That sure caused an altercation!! This is funny and shared, Patty!
