The Contest

(The Contest)

I once knew a gentle poet boy
Pretending to be the real McCoy
   He lost two in a row
   This is no game show
At the end, I felt used by the playboy


(The cold rain)

I wish I could take back the HM
Don't know why you chose to condemn
   I thought we were friends
   Now I see through crystal lens,
How you think all your poems are a top gem

(Not a reason to hate)

I once knew a girl with heavy makeup
Behind her smile, her face was corrupt 
   She was in it for the race
   Wanting all her poems to place
She did not win, now she's all worked up

Cool triple hitter, Skat. All three are very funny. Enlighten me though: what is HM? I will laugh a lot harder on that once I know. Loved all three limericks. Three cheers w/fruit drinks, not beers. Love and joy to you.

Scanning these again for maybe the third time. They are good ones for how Soupers act around here sometimes. How ARE you these days, Skat? Let me go see if I went to your blog already or not.

Hi Skat, I enjoyed your varied limericks, they show a well developed sense of fun. If truth to tell, when I am in the mood I scribble out some of these short poems for the simple joy of it. Please continue to write.

Very good, Skat. I enjoy writing limericks, but they do tax my mind, so if I can complete one, it makes me happy. Merci for stopping by. Best to you. / M
