A new series of (non-acrostic) limericks produced in response to various prompts.
These will appear on Saturday mornings wherever possible.
Let me know what you think.
The rules (per yourdictionary.com):
The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables while rhyming and having the same verbal rhythm. The third and fourth lines should only have five to seven syllables; they too must rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm.
(for Esther – https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/2020/09/07/laughing-along-with-a-limerick-25/ The prompt was LOOK)
It really is not a good look
To be too absorbed in your book
You think you’re so cool
Yet you act like a fool
Beware, no excuses I’ll brook
So, look and enjoy, by all means
Imagine you’re still in your teens
Then book a vacation
To Hong Kong or the Philippines
And while you’re enjoying your break
Don’t forget your best-seller to take
Just don’t look astounded
If you are surrounded
By people who think you’re a fake.
