    It's International Limerick Day (so it is)...

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by SethLoki, May 12, 2016.

    It’s Limerick Day today
    So shall we all here have a play?
    Yes—let we at the forum
    Unplug thumbs from own bums
    And post on this thread whatever we may

    :)

    International Limerick Day:
    Ask for cash when you visit to say
    That you're not gonna rhyme
    'Cause you don't have the time
    But you're so good, you do anyway

    ... I'll leave the bill here ;)

    Man Seth was a right little blighter
    Who had thoughts of being a fighter
    He played on a forum
    Worked hard not to bore ‘em​
    And everyone said what a writer!

    I got that on the third read
    But pay to play are words I won’t heed
    So my two cents
    No cash for rhyming by chance
    But thanks for doing the deed

    :)

    Why cheers @Wayjor I am quite flattered
    Words thought through rather than smattered
    Alas sometimes I can’t pick em
    So into touch I do kick em
    Where they rest all tangled and battered

    There once was a writer named Polly
    Whose potboilers made her quite jolly.
    "My stuff isn't lit;
    I don't care a bit:
    I'm just in the biz for the lolly!"

    A day for writing poems
    he suffered from the block
    his angel hanged
    a spider,
    his crystal tuned as fog.
    He could not ride the donkey
    or mount a parker pen
    on thread - a cruel conspiracy
    not website of brethren.
    Tears are now a soaking
    Revenge he shall deliver
    Call(s) upon said residents
    @123456789, @Wayjor Frippery @SethLoki
    will feast(s) among their livers.

    @matwoolf, well oiled and slippery,
    Got bent over in front of ol' Frippery,
    But in barged his wife,
    With the flick of her knife,
    She forever ended Mat's trickery

    Please don't do this to me
    I have no selfrestraint you see
    I'll be here all day
    Unable to stray
    Have a heart; let my Saturday free.

    The limrick’s a low form of poetry
    not something you'd write to get notery
    but today is the day
    when we all get our say
    so I'll force you to read what I wrotery

    You write like I think
    (what i'm saying is you stink)
    That the best word play you had?
    Well i think its... uh... bad!
    Time for a game; every rhyme take a drink!

    @matwoolf's talent was starting to peter,
    Poor rhyming, no structure, and not even meter,
    For a limerick-off,
    His poem felt quite wrong,
    Or maybe @matwoolf was simply a cheater

    Quick someone call the police!
    Or notify a priest at least
    the only worse victim of a burn
    remains contained in an urn
    turns out 123456789 added up is a beast!
