Well, we can’t celebrate National Poetry Month without at least one good limerick. (And while this one might not actually qualify as good, it is at least in correct limerick form.)

I like to eat chocolate ice cream.
With caramel, it tastes like a dream.
With marshmallows, it’s topped,
And pecans that are chopped,
I get so excited, I scream!
(As as aside, this post’s odd title comes from a rhyme my grandma used to say: “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.” When I was a kid, other kids my age hadn’t heard that before, so I always guessed it was something from the “way-back.”)
UPDATE: Since I scheduled this post, I got curious about the title, so I Googled it. No wonder other kids my age didn’t know what it was… It was apparently a popular novelty song… in 1927!
