I soupmailed the sponsor of this contest for clarification and he said any limerick is ok, so in case you wonder what this has to do with St Patrick's Day, it's IRISH to do a limerick!

When King Lion met Jack Kangaroo, quite a struggle ensued at the zoo. Leo tried to attack, but Jack fired then right back: "Are you crazy, Cat? I know Kung Fu!" Submitted March 1, 2021 for L Milton Hankins' Limericks In Honor Of St. Patrick's Day Poetry Contest

This is so very funny! Love it! You know what's crazy? My teen daughter was just singing Kung Fu Fighting a little while ago, and I just got that song out of my head! Lol, it is back plus a music video per your poem!

Hilarious! Loved it of course as my mother was a McCormick; and I claim a wee bit of Irish.

Well, that had to have been some more fight. Wow~~ Not sure I understand how that relates to St. Patrick's day though. I am a bit confused but it doesn't take much to confuse me. Thanks for your visit. Sara

I soupmailed the contest person and he said his contest is being misinterpreted. Any limerick honors St.Patrick Day because it's an "Irish" thing. He told me any limerick would do and he was surprised everyone is doing it on St. Patrick.
