A poet who lived in Odell
Wound up trapped in a lyrical hell,
Oh, the rhyme scheme and meter
Are certain to beat her
While attempting her first villanelle.

There was an old man named McDougal
Who spent his time hunting on Google.
His internet history
Would spark quite a mystery,
He’s Googling bugles and kugel.

Our resident demon dog, Cheech

Our hyper young doggie named Cheech
Is proving to be hard to teach.
If his signals we miss,
On most anything he’ll piss,
Good thing I’m well stocked up on bleach!

LOL! Another fun assortment of limericks. Glad to see you wrote some more!

Mary Mansfield said...

Yeah, I think I'm hooked!

Semaphore said...

You just proved that you're much more than equal
To the task of a limerick sequel.
But no politics here,
Only gaiety and cheer:
Laughed at these more than I did the prequel.

Looks like you got the form and rhyming fun. He..he... I am not so good with forms dealing with rhyme scheme and meter ~

(aka Heaven)

My dog though three is worse than Cheech
When she pees on the mat I screech
No matter what I say
She makes me wanna pray
I wish I could leave her on a beach

Brian Miller said...

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...
