Belated Limerick Day

@DeahWA from The Girlfriend mentioned that yesterday was Limerick Day.  Thought it would be fun for the folks at Our Front Porch to post a favorite limerick, or create your own. Here's what I wrote: be kind, I know it's a little dorky, maybe even "cheesy." 

 

Eat pizza for breakfast cold,

crease it for lunch on a fold.

 

For dinner if you desire,

what would be proper attire?

 

Pizza in pajamas, I'm sold.

 

So, you just have to follow and AA   BB   A   rhyming theme.  Would love to see if we have any poets in our midst.    Christine

I am a male who delivered the mail

Always on time without fail

In rain, sleet, or snow,

the mail had to go

or my bosses would get up my tail!

Couldn't resist @postman29 .  This limericking, ( yes, I just make it a verb) is a bit addicting and I've put a few more out on the forums.  Christine

@Rhymesometimes I am not a limerist but I felt I needed to make a contribution to this topic!

Three cheers for good sport DaveMcK,

for sharing your rhyming today.

 

Classic movie reference no less,

if honest, I must confess.

 

Your porch is a fun place to play.

 

@DaveMcK  Thank you for sharing your wordsmithing, very clever. A natural limerist.  Christine
