Limerick – green for dVerse

Writing something on green to celebrate the upcoming S:t Patrick’s day is what Karin want’s us to do on dVerse. For me it had to be a limerick. Limericks are tricky, but reading it aloud I think I got a decent rythm, and as any good limerick it’s not entireley “clean”.

There once was a man from Kilkenny
One night met a lady named Jenny
He was very keen
and she wasn’t green
With a smile he spent every penny

  1. Love it. Hmmm. that has been said already, but still love it. Hope she was worth it too. I am not much of a limerick creator in verse, bbut i really liked yours.

  2. ..ooh..nice… perhaps, limerick is one form in poetry i cannot write… seriously i made several attempts on it & all went a flop…maybe, humour in poetics is not on my blood… ha..i adore ya’ll who can easily write one… loved it. .. smiles…

  3. This is a little more blue than green 🙂
    You are right, they are hard to do. I think I have only ever managed to write two.

  4. I want to write a limerick too! 🙂

    A LOOK FROM NORWAY

    A mister from Sweden was winning
    whenever his car started spinning.
    He stated, “The end
    will always depend
    on whether it had a beginning!”

    Hihi! 😉

  5. I just met a man from Sweden, who still wrote with a pen,
    he did so not because he was green, he just knew it would never be seen, after the font was well typed again.

  6. I believe I have improved it:

    PRECISELY

    A Swedish professor was winning
    whenever his car started spinning.
    He stated, “The end
    of motion depend
    on whether it had a beginning!”

    Right! 😮

    • Not perfect. It should say “depends”. So I had to change it.

      PRECISELY

      A Swedish professor was winning
      whenever his head started spinning.
      He stated, “The end
      does always depend
      on whether there was a beginning!”

      Writing limericks is in fact quite fun!
