Privacy Fence Blues

On the lawn there sat an old man,
to lounge and work on his tan.
Some found it quite rude,
when he sunned in the nude,
and of my neighbor, I'm not a fan...

    still love this one!! well, caleb, I am on my way out the door of the school. should have left 15 min ago but wanted to catch up on comments. You are my last for the day. hurrah hurrah! My eyes keep closing I feel so sleepy and I am glad this was a short one I came to. haha. by the way, I too have to take a running start to fly in my dreams. I used to LOVE my flying dreams but I have not had once since my youth. I think it means my dreams died. Luv,Andrea

    You are TOO kind to me! [After years of writting verse one WILL just get bored with rhyme ;) has to happen when the number of verses you write crests 1000] You do need some help here on limerick meter..there are only 2 acceptable meters used in a limerick..if you don't use them..it isn't a limerick [it can still be a great poem!!] so lets limerickize what you have..I'll try?

    There was an old man who sat/ on the lawn without a hat/ some found him quite rude/ for he sunned quite nude/ his neighbors thought he was too fat!

    gosh, CAleb. you can write a good limerick. Now that I have seen all the limericks in my contest, I can start looking at people's limericks. None of your titles looked like ones in my contest. I wish you had entered my contest!
