Many examples of acrostic poems can be found scattered around the web (where the first letter of each line spells out a word when read from top to bottom), but I have found very few examples of acrostic Limericks.
I now look out for prompts that contain five letters (or ten, fifteen or… let’s not get ahead of ourselves, eh?). I may add the odd one of my own, too.
Let me know what you think.
Resolutions we make on Jan one
End often before they’ve begun;
So once on the table,
Only the well-able
Let anyone know what they’ve done.
Until the first two months do end,
The pledge must go as you intend.
If, once it is spoken,
One part of it’s broken,
No good will come – you can depend.
Anyone care to join in?
