Limerick Thread

This is a little more challenging than Haiku, but give it a shot:


In Las Vegas thank God it's Friday
I say that in sort of a wry way
The Big Race is in town
and tourists abound
Have fun, spend up, and go A-way.


I'm watching the POTUS on CSPAN
I've never been much of a big fan
He butchers his words
Offends 'language nerds'
But he's 'folksy' and makes a good pitch-man.

This might help.

Some people need to try this thread
I know it makes you scratch your head
but give it a try
and try not to cry
when your rhymes the critics may shred.

So far I'm here all alone
But at least the seeds have been sewn
Put your thinking caps on
And sip your Ceylon
Put your words down and cause us to groan.

I put ink in my printer today
Some stuff that I bought on ebay
The red cartridge spilled
Looks like I've been killed
(or maimed on my hand anyway)

Today we're expecting a rain,
"an inch or so" some folks complain.
But I love the weather,
it keeps us together
all bundled up in our domain.

In Pageland it's not so exciting
Today's weather's not very inviting.
But my sister today
Is now on the way,
And in that we are now delighting.

(I haven't seen my sister in a little over 5 years since our mom died, and James has never met her. She and her boyfriend will be staying through tomorrow, then off to his mom's, since his mom is having surgery Monday)

Our chances for rain are not great,
and it is difficult to wait.
We've been oh-so dry,
and sometimes I sigh,
when it comes I must celebrate.

I hear our storm is a-coming
The patter on rooftops is drumming
The winds are whipping,
and water is dripping,
it's that or I must fix the plumbing!
