A drink to the cold

The Winter weather is here and it's cold
Colds not much fun if you are homeless or old
But some like cold cheer
And drink ice cold beer
But when you're cold whiskeys' best so I'm told.


Written on 6th January 2019

For same word winter limerick poetry contest.

( chosen word is cold )

Not the easiest one to do having to squeeze the same word into each line and make it sound okay.

Nice Limerick, Tom. I am so glad that our weather is a rarity In WA. Good excuse for swigging that Whiskey. We are living in a heatwave here. I enjoyed your words, my friend....peter

Well written Tom! FYI, I keep my Jameson in my freezer. It will not freeze and there is no better way to take a shot once in a while.

Thanks Timothy, I never knew that one, I'm not keen on ice in whiskey so that's a great way around it. Tom.

Thanks Nette, nothing a small drop of gold won't put right lol. Tom.

And the whiskey doesn't even have to be cold to give you that warm rush before heading outdoors. I should think it would be hard to repeat the same word in each line, but you did it very well, Tom! Best wishes in the contest, Carolyn

Thank you Carolyn, on a cold day a tot of amber gold helps to combat the the chill. Did find it harder than usual using the same word in each line. Tom.

Thanks Peter, kids got me some for Christmas so I should be okay, strictly medicinal of course. Enjoy your summer, if you have any spare sunshine send some our way. Happy new year. Tom.

Tom, it is a conspiracy. This is the third time this week I have heard whiskey when thinking about the perpetual two week cold I have had. Hmmmmm Your limerick may have been written to give me a push in a certain direction. Good luck in the contest my friend.

Thanks Caren, a quarter of whiskey, three quarters boiling water and two spoons of sugar, stir well let it cool and drink it as hot as you can, next day you should feel better. Works for me. Tom.

Bottoms up, my friend. Well-done! G.L. in the contest (And I agree: Whiskey certainly has a warming effect). Best wishes, Gershon
