Impossible

I tried out my hand at a Limerick
The words that I chose didn't do the trick
Every phrase that I tried
Left my hand paralyzed 
A tough trick when writing a Limerick





Trying another new style.

    hahaha! Very funny! It's pretty difficult to have good rhymes and THE perfect rhythm with the right number of syllables! Nice try, Rick! I remember one limerick from our English classes: Doctor Foster went to Gloucester/In a shower of rain/ He stepped in a puddle/Right up to his middle/And never went there again! (And there was a nice tune to it...). I like limericks very much but never got to the idea of writing one!

    I like this one..You could try in the last line maybe something like Glad I was not trying a poem epic...Sometimes the words that we choose limit where we can go with a work..Enjoyed reading ..It looks like you have great flow to this one...Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    Richard--goodness you have quite a following. Writing about writing is fun. Very enjoyable. My sources tell me the cliff might just be over-hyped even if we end up on the other side of it for a while. But it makes for great TV news. Debt is ubiquitous.

    I think by delaying the measures the politicians are making the problem far worse. Eventually these idiots will bankrupt your country. Thanks for commenting.

    okies YOU are truly a writer always learning very hard form! the real defining line is line 5..if it isn't funny well..oh well LOL to help until you have it down pat..start [There once was] or [There was] and you will be beginning in the correct meter..incluse a name & a place [this is tradition!]

    Pretty damn good for your first limerick! Good pentameter, proper syllable count, and a punch line! I give you an a+ :)

    Good one my friend... you had me counting the syllables as I read it! Sure enough, it was 10-10-6-6-10! Go to the head of the class! Cheers!

    Thanks Jack. I am trying to do something different each week. My delayed poetic education so to speak.
