I read several posts in my feed that today is National Limerick Day, along with some great limericks written by several folks on a variety of topics. I have to be honest: I’ve never written a limerick before; I thought they all were “off-color” before today! But since it’s National Limerick Day I just had to give it a go (really, I couldn’t stop myself!).
I got the first line as a suggestion while looking up how to write one and stuck in my head. So I fooled with it until I ended up with a limerick chain – or something like that.
There once was a very old dog,
who slept his whole life in a log.
One night jarred from his sleep,
by a noise loud and deep-
just a pesky old bullfrog.
The pesky loud, old bullfrog
nearly scared the life outta the dog.
When the dog realized
what just materialized,
he ran the beast back to the bog.
