...a simple history of limericks...in a limerick. I'll be republishing as verses appear.

Tuesday, May 22, 2007
As time went on, I realized that the limericks had lost the brilliance and originality that they contained when I first started writing. It saddens me to say that my quest to write one limerick everyday is over; however, thank you everyone who helped me to get to 155 limericks. That should be an accomplishment within itself. Limericks arn't the easiest poems to write correctly, and those who read the blog can say without a shadow of a doubt that, I always tried to make my meter and ryhming as perfect as possible. I've decided to end the daily limerick quest officially, and start a new one. One that should have been the main focus from the beginning: Writing daily about anything related to limericks. That's my resolve from now on.
I hope this isn't a turn off to the many readers I've gained over time and I apologize for making you wait over twenty days without any explanation at all! Finals and many projects took up most of my time; the blog wasn't the main thing on my mind. So, it's safe to come back to reading daily, and, don't worry; the overall quest of becoming a blog of note is still active. It'll take some work though, so, please don't stop the encouraging comments

When staying out long in the sun,
Its better to tan with your son.
‘cause the tanning booths try
to heat you till you fry;
by the way, try to pardon my pun.

A True Renaissance Man
A renaissance fair man named Mike,
took his anger out using a pike.
In blood they were doused,
in the streets, at the joust,
Michael proved himself to be a tyke.

Six in a Row
The Yankees are down in a slump.
And their rivals are playing the trump.
Like a bee to a midge,
I turned baseball to bridge.
At this rate, the Yanks might as well crump!
The Problem with Kids
The light bulb went off in a flash.
The plates hit the floor with a crash.
The noise will abound,
when the kids are around.
And you’re bound to have piles of trash.

A boy that was taking a stroll,
walked too slow and bumped into a pole.
The pole was so mad,
that he picked up the lad
with his hands that were made out of cole.

For all you spanish scholars, forgive me. I know that the meter doesnt quite fit in line three with "clase"
Español es un clase fácil.
And in no way is it an ordeal.
Cuando voy al clase,
I am met with a fray,
Pero los alumnos son gentil.

A store that sells many devices,
Must sell them at discounted prices.
With treacherous guile,
They put on a smile.
And sprinkle the shoppers with spices.

As the plane hurtled out of the sky,
their destruction was ever so nigh.
The suggestion was moot,
Here it is: parachute;
It would help them, the stars to defy.

A random limerick so i can get away from the story. My internet was down, sorry for the delay!
Why I’ll Never Go to Shop Rite Again
A man in a grocery store,
He threw all his bags on the floor.
He huffed and he puffed,
His demeanor was gruff.
And the cashier just walked out the door.

Mary thanks for the honor and glory.
But I’m taking a break from the story.
It is not a mistake,
It’s the first day of break,
So, tomorrow I’ll finish the story.

So, I'd like to point out that I've been tracking my blogs progress with google analytics. The results are somewhat suprising! In LESS than three days, my blog went from 700 to over 800 unique visitors. Thanks to all that have ever read, commented or VISITED my blog.
Special Acknowledgements go to a select few bloggers that I feel have gone out of their way to, not only read the blog often, but become frequent commenters.
-Mary (of http://mary-marysmusings.blogspot.com/) For frequent comments and suggestions, and from what I read on the OEDILF forums, she has been reading ever since January! Thanks! By far, she is THE most frequent commentor and even gave me the main suggestion for my idea of posting limericks in the form of a story!
-Courtney (for sending the excellent site to me[gotta check em' out!] www.oedilf.com) Her blog is: http://fifer-traeger.blogspot.com/
-Lauren S. (for linking to me, continued comments/ suggestions) Check out her blog as well. http://bamagirlinthecity.blogspot.com
-Editor of OEDILF- Not only a fellow Norwalkian (I think thats correct), but has expressed intrest in the blog and encouraged me to join the team. (I have....btw)
-Robin: In my early stages of stunted limerickal development, this blogger came by with repeated encouraging comments. Thanks! http://creativewritintravel.blogspot.com/
-Margaret- Owner of http://thehatchlingpress.blogspot.com. The poems featured there are good and she has offered comments often. Thanks to you too!
-Prof. R.K Singh- THis man not only provided great comments but, suggested that I try to publish my works elsewhere. I haven't looked for a publisher yet (frankly, I don't know where to start) however, I have entered my writing into several contests. http://rksinghpoet.blogspot.com
Many thanks to the other readers of mine. These readers did something that made them stick out in my mind, wheter its a comment on most limericks or directing me to a place where a larger audience of people can view my poems. Thanks to All!
-It's come to my attention via a post on an online forum on www.oedilf.com that my readers think I am older than I actually am. I didn't mean to set off this kind of confusion. :\
-In my profile I said I was a freshman, and that IS true. But not in college. Im still a ninth grader and the fact that my readers think that I was a freshman in college bewilders me and in a weird way, gives me a warm fuzzy feeling all over. Thanks for the fuzzy feeling just wanted to clear it up.
p.s- Mary, although I don't respond to comments on my own blog, the post on the forum has made me think that it's only a common courtesy to respond to my comments. So.....as of today, all comments, I'll try to respond to with a legitimate comment on the commenters blog. :)
Limerick coming soon!!!

Over 700 visitors is a pretty good thing! Thanks so far for all the comments, suggestions. Keep em' coming! Thanks
But as soon as her maid left the room,
Her insane palpitations resumed.
Kate fell on the floor
And crawled towards the door.
A thick gloom in her room signaled doom.

Another detour, my apologies. It's just, I have exams coming up soon, I'm trying to get "in the zone."
My exams are just four days away.
When they’re over, my thoughts will allay.
But that doesn’t bring hope,
I have reason to mope
Because then I have more tests in May!

Ok, the story resumes. it may seem random, but like fine wine, this story takes years to age! Maybe not years, but wait until tommorow.
As the King’s niece drove to his estate,
Her sedan broke the wall and his gate.
But the King did not care,
Other girls don’t compare
To his niece and sole heir
Within days all will bow down to Kate!

Like the sun rises up in the sky,
Lovers laugh and they fight and they cry.
But on Valentine’s Day,
All harsh words drift away
Because Cupid is ever so nigh.

I hope you like the twist I've put on the story! For a second, I thought it was over...
So, It Didn’t Really Happen?
Well the king thought that this was enough.
This new story was violent and rough.
So he put the book down,
And went out into town
He forgot he was still in the buff!

I know, the queens already been killled, but there's more to this limerick than you think...just wait untill tommorow
When the man was all ready and clean,
He passed by the blood guilty queen.
The man spit in her face,
And put her in her place,
After throwing her in a ravine.

Sorry, its not good, but there is no way I'm killing off both main characters!
When Brownie began to walk back
The queen’s guard started giving him flak.
Brownie took out his gun,
And the battle was won,
Because guards don’t know how to attack.

Sorry, you have to wait till tommorow to see what the "secret plan" is.
Then Brownie came up with a plan.
As they drove along in their sedan.
When he told it to Kit,
His old cat had a fit,
And he stopped him before it began!
Tuesday, January 23, 2007
I'm liking the idea of the man and his cat, but I need a couple of good names that will fit in meter. Got suggestions?
When the man and his cat drove away,
the sky turned from sunny to gray.
But what they didn’t know,
Was that ten years ago,
Queen Elizabeth wore a toupee!

The Real 16th President
Abraham Lincoln was yelling
On this fact his wife was still dwelling.
She said, “Abe never shouts,
He just sits and he pouts.
I wish he was not so compelling!”

This is dedicated to Homer and his epic poem, "The Odyssey" and the essay I had to write about it. NOTE: I did not abide by the rules stated, nor did I receive the punishment!
When writing an essay for school.
Abide by the number one rule.
That almighty law,
States, “you must wear a bra,
Or else you’ll be forced to eat stool.”

Vandalism (The Comeback)
A homeowner looked at his yard.
And found out that it had been marred.
As he thought about why
He exclaimed with a sigh,
“Now my beautiful yard has been scarred!”

The Eskimos’ igloo was icky.
His carpet was covered in whiskey.
On the previous night,
There had been a large fight,
He also was robbed by Ms. Vicky.

If you haven't noticed, I'm taking the suggestion of a reader and going down the alphabet with my limerick titles. Thanks for the suggestion. (I can't wait for "X" and "Q"). i was thinking of adding small pictures to poems also. what do you think? Please comment.
Boris the Blacksmith
Boris the blacksmith was flying.
And gravity he was defying.
But then out of the blue,
Something shaped like a shoe
Bopped old’ Boris and he started crying.

The Annoying Child
A child was feeling distraught.
He felt all his deeds were for naught.
When his father asked why
He exclaimed with a sigh,
“All the kids at school think I am snot!”

I hope you like it. Its not my greatest limerick, but, you know what they say: "Every poet has their day." or something along those lines!
The Elderly Man
The elderly man was a grump.
His belly was also quite plump.
But when John came to town
The hunkered down frown
Became something that looked like a hump.

My passion for limericks accrues.
But I still need to look for my muse.
If you know where to go
To find ideas that grow,
Let me know because I won’t refuse.
