One happy-go-lucky senryu
Was caught impersonating a haiku
They levied no fines
But deleted two lines
Now she's a stick-in-the-mud monoku

Enjoyed very much Mark - to add an unapproved line - so clever and painful and true. You know how to have fun with it all.

Ha! Love it - love the merging of forms and the wit invested ... not a huge Limerick guy, but I love them when some thought has been put into it - excellent, my friend! :-D

Lol... It was just one small indiscretion! Couldn’t they give her a break? Thanks for stopping by, Nina :) ~Mark

my brain feels twisted. a senryu, impersonating a haiku, reduced to a monoku--all wrapped up neatly in a limerick. Clever :)
