You and You Alone

by Morgan

You and You Alone

It is a Space of Time which Holds no Fainting,
That Lives and Breathes in Me, Just Waiting,
Yearning that Delves into the Heart of me,
Like a Blade, Debating Indecisively,

The punter–a limerick in response

by sustainabilitea

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

Here’s my limerick response to my husband’s limerick

The punter’s a man of great skill
Who wishes other players no ill
But if into him
Those players run in
The penalty’s a quite bitter pill

(And he can walk once he’s done playing!!)

by billgncs

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

the man who is chosen to punt
is usually the size of a runt
he’s small and he’s shifty
with a foot that’s quite nifty
until the big guys succeed in their hunt

Football Is Back On TV: Limerick.

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

Posted for jgkravitz

For TV, life without football sucks.
It sells lots of food, beer and trucks.
With lots of competition
And ad repetition…
The networks rake in the big bucks!

Nonplus

by fivemsteps

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

This is a word I think needs be discussed.
Latin times, but no more, it wasn’t fussed.
But our parents got confused, perplexingly.
Now kids misuse it, unimpressively.
Do you know what it means? I’m quite nonplussed.

Wedding dress: Limerick.

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

Posted for Debb.

There was a man named Darrow
He had totally forgot about tomorrow
So he packed up his things
and even remembered the rings
to match the wedding dress his fiancée would sew

Limerick: Judgment

by Venkat

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

Reflect before you jump to judge

It could be your eye’s smudge

Impossible to destroy my reality

Even when I disagree in totality

Step back, lest it becomes a grudge

Limerick: Homework

by Venkat

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

There once was a cunning school boy

For his homework, he had a nice ploy

He teased his classmate much, do the work

But the dull teacher seemed a better shirk

He let her check the work, to his silly joy

Limerick: Choice

by Venkat

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

The root of freedom is choice

As I see my son, play with toys

The question is about being free

Not to scream or to let it be

But to speak in one’s own voice

Happy slappy fakey tan
Makes a difference to your nan
She sits there all brown
With nary a frown
And wafts her tanned face with a fan.

Limerick: If I Were Tall

by Venkat

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

If I were tall and measured a ‘furlong’

My eyes may seem short of ‘strong’

To mistake Jupiter for earth

Melons as lemons from birth

See why height could become ‘wrong’
