I like limericks, and I like challenges, so what could be better than Madeleine Kane’s weekly limerick-off challenges. She gives us the first line, and off we go. Here are the last three limericks I wrote (I forgot to post the first one; the second one received an honorable mention!)
A woman was trying to show
How well she could make her plants grow
So she planted some seeds
But only grew weeds
Now she weeps far more than she sows
A gal had a notable knack
For putting her back out of whack.
So she took up Tai Chi
And now she’s pain-free
And hears nary a crack from her back.
A gal with a very deep tan
Developed an ingenious plan
To get rid of tan lines
So now she declines
To wear aught but a pair of Ray-Bans.
