This week at MadKane's weekly Limerick-Off, there are two different themes to play with.
Her normal first line challenge is to use one of the following lines as the starting point for the limerick:
"A fellow was making a list"
"A woman was making a list"
Her second option this week is to create any limerick relating to New Year's resolutions.
This week, I am entering one of each. First, my resolutions related limerick:
Every year a man made it his goal
To see his team win the big Bowl,
He'd be ever so cross
when they suffered a loss
And would take weeks just to console.
And my list making limerick:
A woman was making a list
of reasons to avoid slitting a wrist,
or sitting on the edge
of a high window ledge,
and realized her point might be missed.
If I was in the resolution making mood, I'd resolve to enter the Limerick-Off sooner than two hours before the deadline, but I'm likely to break it. :)
