Valsa George


Limericks.4 and 5


ON NOT EATING


In Wales, lived a crazy man called Watts
One night, a cat ate his porridge oats
Slamming the door with a thud,
He lay down on his creaky bed.
Unable to sleep, he stormed round, kicking his boots!


ON EATING


A plump woman lived in New York.
She gulped down much beef and pork.
Adding calories to her fat.
Once, on a chair as she sat
It broke down with a sudden creak

    To eat or not to eat that is the question. I really enjoyed this one.
    A tasty treat and a good laugh before the day begins. Very lovable
    and funny. Thank you Valsa. (Report) Reply

    valsa, i am confused. i copied the following and have pasted it below for you and other readers of these poems to comment on. [the poems 4 and 5 did not sound like limericks to me, though i found them quite interesting. i had a little trouble reading the first one as it seems to be missing some punctuation.]


    A limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. 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 only have to have five to seven syllables, and have to rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm.

    I smiled quite a bit when I read this, I love the depth of imagination in this, great story and wonderful imagery, perhaps Mr. Watts should trade places? (Report) Reply

    Beautiful Limericks kept me laughing. Eat and break the chair or not eat and kick the chair - up to the eater to decide! Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Excellent limericks and your willingness to amuse us deserves to be applauded. A poet with virtual hold over the conservative devices of poetic justice ought to forget the past of his/her usual works and now and then go for such light submissions.
    A clear 10 for you Madam Valsa (Report) Reply

    Light-heartedness gives us a break from the burden of worries and philosophies and it carries a message too. (Report) Reply

    Ha! Ha! Ha! , I like this one Valsa. To eat or not to eat that is the question.
    Thin and fat in front of the cat. Underfed as he lied on his bed. Fat as she sat
    and sat. I loved it! (Report) Reply
