Limericks,7,8 (Dog's Bark/ Cat's Mew) - Poem by Valsa George


In Greece, lived a young lad called Mark
All he craved was to sing like a lark
After intense training for long
With expert help all along
As he sang, it sounded like a dog's bark


A pussy cat seeing some milk inside a pot,
Ignorant, it would become a Gordian knot,
Put her head inwards.
Alas, the pot turned upwards
With head jammed inside, she mewed distraught!

    NO lark for Mark and no milk for the cat. Both have been
    short changed and that is that! Had a good laugh.
    Nice. (Report) Reply

    It seems that the challenge has ended
    the cat and dog both surrendered
    alas no art was offended in high hand'
    and a town sleeps safe in Ireland. (Report) Reply

    A valiant effort you've made indeed,
    but NOT all poems are for me to read.
    Because you're my friend
    i read both to the end,
    but don't write more of THEM, i plead!

    but SERIOUSLY, i give you a quite good score. thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply
