The Dare (Limerick)

Updated on July 27, 2012

Why is no one sitting in that there chair

We don't know my friends replied, take this dare

Just go and give it a try

Did not think did not ask why

I sat, chair broke, they all laughed and did stare

      ha ha! Some of the more daring boys in Catholic school would but thumb tacks in the nun's chair - upside down! Funny at the time, but really mean, now that I think about it......

      However, it's also a well written descriptive limerick, capturing the nature of a prank in its limited phrasing framework.

      I'm giggling J34-18 or really 16=7 and that is one step above perfect in numerology. And that is the score I give this limerick. A fan of Abbaa for many, many years that rock-n-roll song, let me share some limericks for you http://youtu.be/WCkOmcIl79s something your limericks do conjure with a dash of spontaneity and a tad of word association.

      I've just awaken from delta, now in theta, that is where my mind wanders reading your fun filled limerick. I'm remembering a chair like you described, yet a chair for a witness, posted by Mr. Mark Knowles, on facebook, just after publishing a confession.

      Now, it's just a bit passed 3am, and I'm paying the devil its due - an bit of an old wives tale about time. Read, read, read I seem to remember saying once and that is what I now do.

      thanks

      tim
