sharing a poetic LIFELINE with the world

I wrote these today.  I’m not one to write limericks.  I’m not real comfortable with the form.  The last one is for a special friend of mine.

Here goes nothing!

Presenting Really Bad Limericks:



There was a girl from Savannah
Who had the most terrible manners
She never said please
And often would tease
Even those who tripped on peeled bananas.


There was a man from Seattle
Who got in the rottenest battles
If he sat next to you at a bar
Best to take yourself very far
From his brass knuckles, used often on cattle.


Ocean Shores

There was a woman from Ocean Shores
Who only saw open doors
She was so positive
That God was the causative
With only good things in store.



There was a lady from Orlando
Who was all about the Can-Do
Collages, poems and short stories
Productive, even with her health worries
Wish I had her ducks in a row.

  1. I don’t think your poems were bad, quite the difference. Love how you worked in our cities.

  2. There was a young lass from Manhattan
    who tried very hard not to fatten
    It was thus quite a treat
    to have something to eat
    so she ate it in silence, not chattin’.


  3. i’m just a kid from South Africa, my name is Jamie. i really enjoy your poems, i think you guys have a great potential, one day i’m gonna be a writer, and you guys inspire me more than EVER!!!!
