Seattle Man Limerick

Updated on June 27, 2012

Battle engaged....

Oh, God, what is man that thou art mindful of him?
Oh, God, what is man that thou art mindful of him? | Source

The contention dimension....


There once was a man from Seattle.

who claimed he'd never lost a battle,

But if the truth be known,

to marriage he had flown,

and his "I do" was his own death rattle.

      kelitad - How far are you and your hubby from Cedar Rapids? I have a family of 8 (son, d-in-law, and six grandchildren) who love it there. I'm glad the two of you enjoyed this limerick. Thanks.

      I think great limericks are brilliant. Bad ones are lame. You created a great one!

      Amy Becherer: Three cheers for St. Louie on a typical summer Sunday!

      I have a suspicion that it would be near impossible for any limerick to be brilliant, so I will settle for the high praise of funny as being more in keeping with the essence of some good limericks. Because you enjoyed it I will attempt another.

      The intrigue of "The Contention Dimension" found in the lost art of the limerick. Brilliant and funny and sad, too. Bravo!

      Limericks are meant to be read out loud and passed along. Thanks for the sharings. It appears this strikes a funny nerve and my funny feedbacks are on the rise again.
