The ‘Word of the Day’ it is… ‘Fidictious
A word I made up just like ‘Prediciamous’
It’s top of my list
Though it does not exist
As a present that I would like for Chrisiamious!
Limerick Inspired by So’ton (Southampton) Wrimos
There once were some writers from So’ton
Who were writing of lands long forgotten
Space ships in flight
Murder with spite
Or the best way to hurry the plot on.
A Limerick was once dedicated
To a man who limericks hated
But, even he had to laugh
About the telescopic giraffe
Who says that poetry is over-rated?
And now, I suppose, I will have to create a Limerick about a telescopic giraffe! Wish me luck as you wave me… etc.
There once was a lonely giraffe
Who was sad, just refusing to laugh
But, his sight once myopic
And he could see for a mile and a half.
Maybe… could be better.
There was a giraffe who was lonely
He looked for his one true and only
But, a keeper, Philanthropic,
Made ‘her’ neck telescopic;
And they lived together, quite homely.
Not the best end rhyme for line 5…
A giraffe with a telescopic neck
Said “The ups and downs make me a wreck!”
The keepers deducted
A neck-brace, which they constructed,
Would keep all that bobbing in check.
Not 100% happy yet, sorry!
A giraffe at the zoo had a plight
Something in his neck wasn’t right
It was the main topic-
A neck, telescopic!
It certainly gave the small children a fright!
A Limerick walked into a Septembar!
Graeme’s Ukulele song No.1 Limerick
Over the hills and far away
My busking love and I did play
We strummed from Spring until the end of Fall
Still came away with… bugger all!
(Oh, my gosh, the language, I hear you say!!)
A Gentleman who hailed from Prestatyn
Caught a taxi – to put his new hat in
He followed behind
(He only had half a mind)
With a pet-carrier that he had his cat in!
One day, on the banks of the Seine
A French man become quite insane
He balanced some frogs
Upon two passing dogs
Then fell into the river – quite mad!
