Fun Friday With A Twist

This Fun Friday, I thought we’d add to the fun with a limerick.  As you know, limericks are silly, nonsense poems with five lines and an A-A-B-B-A rhyming pattern.  They can actually be traced as far back as the early eighteenth century in England.  (As a matter of fact, if you have a few extra minutes, go look up “limerick” in Wikipedia, where they have some really funny examples.)

And now, for our Fun Friday…

There was an old hermit named Dave…  No, wait, that’s not a nice one at all!  And it’s not even mine.  Let me try again.  This one really is mine…

Last night I pulled an all-nighter
My future has never looked brighter
I worked on my book
With the plot and the hook
I’m so glad that I am a writer

Have a great weekend!

  1. LOL! BTDT!

    I don’t write much poetry, and when I do, it’s…strange. Two of the poems I’ve blogged were written about writing, too: The Ornament (Jan. 4, 2013), and A Poem of the Parallel Universe (Feb. 12, 2014).

    You also might enjoy Behold the Power of Limericks! (Oct. 4, 2013).
