Portrait of Carla

Written by Gail DeBole 

A coupon clipper named Carla
Has a bookshelf of coupons in her parla'.
      She clips more each week,
      Treats each like an antique,
And guards them against any burgla'.

    Love limericks, but I'm no good at it. This one is very clever. I like Mother Goose wrecks, like - There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, had so many children she didn't know what to do...OBVIOUSLY Welcome to the soup. Love, daver

    Lovely poem Gail! I like the image of Carla guarding her precious treasures - it's like guarding memories. Nice!

    There once was a clipper named Carla/ whose coupon bookshelves filled her parlor/ she clips more each week/ some old ones antiques/..yike Gail almost nothing rhymes with either of those end words UT OH!!! Try Old Carla's a coupon clipper...many more things rhyme with clipper [nod] Light & Love

    Hi Debbie - Thank you for your feedback! I always appreciate constructive criticism. I will certainly consider your comments if I decide to rewrite this. One of my writing styles is to force the rhyme by adjusting the end of the word, but maybe that's not the way to go with this poem. You certainly have me thinking about this. - Thanks again! Gail
