HE NEEDS SUPPORT - LIMERICK COLLABORATION - JAN ALLISON's Blog

Thought I better get round to writing a bit about myself. 

I'm married and live on the Isle of Man 

My poetry journey began in November 2013 after my husband was diagnosed with cancer. The first poem I wrote was called was Splendid Isolation. This was written after we returned to the Isle of Man after his surgery in England. I felt so alone and vulnerable in the accommodation  - all I really needed was someone to talk to face to face and maybe have a hug! I posted a few poems on a friends facebook page - mainly humerous poems . An on-line friend Jenny Brewer saw my poems and kept telling me to join here. It took about 3 weeks of her asking me if i had joined to pluck up the courage to finally post and 'Just Desserts'  was the first poem I posted here - it is based on a true experience! Since then my life has been a whirl.  In Jared Pickett's collaboration I teamed up with Darren Watson and we wrote together collaboratively as JaDazzle United.


I adore penguins - the animals not the biscuits!
Loveeeee tall men with greying hair
I love baking/cooking
I like to potter in the garden - need more time to commit to it but have an aged mother who needs me more than my garden does
Adore most types of music - will give anything a listen
Best ever gig - Knebworth 1986 when 'Queen' headlined


HE NEEDS SUPPORT - LIMERICK COLLABORATION

Blog Posted:7/17/2021 2:35:00 AM

 

 

 

 

I wrote a limerick called 'He needs support'  which I have now reposted as a collaboration. Thanks to everyone who has joined in so far

Please feel free to soup mail me and I will add new poems to the collaboration. 

https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/he_needs_support_-_reposted_as_collaboration_-_bawdy_warning_1373625

We need more humour in our lives and on soup.

Incidentally I have recently been told by a souper that Issac Asimov wrote bawdy limericks and I have since discovered he had several books published, so if its good enough for Issac it's good enough for me!

Happy writing soupers 

 

Jan xx

I enjoy limericks too Jan, the collaboration is hilarious. Keep them coming. Didn’t know about Issac Asimov’s bawdy books either… Belle :-) x

Thanks for dropping by Belle, I was so thrilled to learn about Asimov writing bawdy limericks lol:-) hugs Jan xx

Jan, I love limericks, but I must tell you they don't come very natural to me. When I write one it takes some time for it to "jell" in my mind. I heartily endorse your collaboration, and I will try to come up with a contribution.

Thanks Milton, I often wake up with a complete limerick in my head and have to rush to write it down, nine times out of ten the syllable count is perfect, I just love the humour in 5 lines:-) hugs Jan xx

Never knew about Isaac, think there's a dark horse in us all lol. You're right though Jan, we can't have enough humour, there's too much covid gloom at the moment. Tom

I had a comment from Delice about Issac Asimov writing bawdy limericks, I think he published 2 or 3 books of them. I know how much you have embraced the form since you joined soup. I was a total novice to writing as it was and it was only through contests on soup that I started to write the form which quickly became my favourite!:-) hugs Jan xx
