Long time, no see, dear readers. I hope spring (or autumn, if you’re in the Southern hemisphere) is treating you well.
I’ve just come out of editing land for a brief fly-over of this blog, and a limerick has settled in my mind. So that’s what you get for this posting. You have the Doc to thank (or not!) for inspiring this limerick. It’s part of the Limerick Challenge, week 12, orchestrated by the wonderful Rashmi at Mind & Life Matters. Do follow her for limericks, novel updates, and much more, and be sure to read the limericks she has on offer.
I don’t deviate too far from the ‘original’ limerick idea—insulting, bawdy, etc. But that’s my impression. What do you think?
Limerick for the Loveless
I once met the man of my dreams
But what he was, was not what he seems
Said he’d grant wishes
(Including doing the dishes)
In retrospect, I shoulda reached for Jim Beam.
