Mischievous Minions--A Limerick Suite



			      

			The series "Despicable Me," 
			we've flocked to theaters to see.
			Wee minions--cute creatures--
			and bad guys each features.
			To all we respond with great glee.

			I never dreamed five years ago
			that I would soon dash to and fro
			in search of these minions--
			in children's opinions,
			all treasures. How well I now know!

			Some kids possess minions galore:
			the one-eyed, the two-eyed, and more.
			They giggle and jabber;
			"BANANA," some blabber.
			Their odd appeal, who could ignore?

			My grandson's like other young boys.
			For Christmas he craved minion toys.
			His loved ones went shopping
			for hours, not stopping
			till we found gifts he now enjoys.
			
			The minion-themed presents I gave
			were puzzles, a cool talking Dave,
			a pillow with three guys
			with one or two huge eyes.
			For these he did hug me and rave.

	`		I'm glad to say just one thing more:
			Fart Blaster, I left at the store!
			The child would have driven 
			me nuts if I'd given
			him that thing; but Dave, I adore.

Congratulations on your win; I took lots of notes on this, Janice, because it is so appealing to my happy musical funny side. It helps that you added a hint at the bottom. I do want to try a limerick now.

What a gem. I find often limericks end up being awkward... yours flows like honey and is just as absolutely delightful. BRAVO!

Such fun and well-written Limericks, Janice! I learned so much about 'minions' since my grandkids were already too grown up when they became popular, so I didn't follow them. Well done, and congrats on your First Place win. 7 Hugs, Sandra
