Serial Killer A Limerick

There once was a serial killer His life was one sickening thriller From the bodies he’d saves And the ones in the graves His life was one bloody chiller Tho his mental state wasn’t quite normal And his social skills never that formal He loved people to pieces Even after life ceases With dead bodies he does like to dabble Now that sounds rather creepy you say That killing is how one spends his day While it’s not quite a profession More like an obsession In the end they’ll come take him away

    Having watched so many episodes of "Criminal Minds," I see the truth as well as the humor in this limerick. It does seem rather ghastly, but some of the serial killers spend time with their victims after they're dead. Very interesting limerick -- unique and insightful! Love, Carolyn

    I think you did an excellent job here Amanda. You tell quite a story even if it is creepy. Easily read and understood. God rhythm and rhyme. Excellent flow. Should be a winner. God Bless, JB

    Thanks for the comments on the flow, I really try for that even if it means using something originally not intended. I am glad you think it is creep that's what I was aiming for... = )
