#84: The End

The End

This blog pushes me to the end.

And I will not pretend to contend

with all of the work

that makes me berserk.

Do you hear me? Do you comprehend?

#83: It Ain't Over Yet

It Ain’t Over Yet

Well the boy had a trick up his sleeve.

His old man he would trick and deceive.

I’m afraid you’ll forget,

If I tell you just yet

the boy’s plan. So, I hope you don’t grieve.

Not A Limerick: Acknowledgements and Clarification

Sorry its so long...I have alot to say tonight

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 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!] Her blog is:

-Lauren S. (for linking to me, continued comments/ suggestions) Check out her blog as well.

-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!

-Margaret- Owner of 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.

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!

Now...finally....THE CLARIFICATION!!!
-It's come to my attention via a post on an online forum on 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. of today, all comments, I'll try to respond to with a legitimate comment on the commenters blog. :)
Limerick coming soon!!!

#82: The End (For Now)

The End (For Now)

“Well, I think that’s enough for tonight,

This sad tale makes me writhe with contrite.”

So the man told his son

That the story was done,

He will never reveal the queen’s plight.

#81: Portents Arise

Over 700 visitors is a pretty good thing! Thanks so far for all the comments, suggestions. Keep em' coming! Thanks

Portents Arise

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.

#80: Nervous Breakdown

Nervous Breakdown

When news of the plague got to Kate,

Her mood went from glad to irate.

She got so upset,

She started to sweat.

But her maid helped and made her sedate.

#79: Another Black Plague?

Another Black Plague?

Well the stench made the townspeople die,

And their sickness was spreading with spry!

If this infamous plague,

Hits the people in Prague

Then the end of all Europe is nigh!

#78: The Result of Poor Embalming Techniques

The Result of Poor Embalming Techniques

His body fell out in the street,

And he smelled bad because of the heat.

All the pallbearers died,

And the menservants cried

As they fell down upon the concrete.

#77: Thrones and Groans

Thrones and Groans

On the next day his niece took the throne.

Her anointing was met with a groan.

And to make matters worse,

The king’s funeral hearse

Crashed and broke on a very large stone.

Tuesday, February 20, 2007

#76: The Luxuriant Funeral

The Luxuriant Funeral

Well, his mourners weren’t mourning at all.

They were too busy wrapping his pall.

In death he had planned,

For a funeral grand

That would make other deaths look quite small.

#75: Assasination


His highness awoke with a start,

And he placed his hand over his heart.

A successful attempt,

To kill him with contempt

Was done only with wine and a dart!

#74: The Plan Won't Work

The Plan Won’t Work

Well Kate disagreed with the scheme

That would make the King held in esteem.

Her rebuttal was this:

“The police don’t exist,

This whole problem is just a bad dream.”

Saturday, February 17, 2007

#73: The Plan

The Plan

The king had a job for his niece.

She would rally the English police.

If she did her job right,

By the end of the night

His torn status would climb and increase.

#72: Exams

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!

#71: Family Reunion

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.

Family Reunion

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!

#70: Valentines Day

Sorry, a temporary break from the story, to commemorate Valentines Day. Its kind of cheesy, I'm not sure I like it.

Valentines Day

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.

#69: Depression


He instantly went back inside,

To the palace where he will reside.

For the rest of his days,

He will sit there and gaze,

His embarrassment will not subside.

#68: That's Disgusting

That’s Disgusting

Joanne took one look at his gut,

And his toenails his thighs and his butt.

She let out with a cry,

“You’re an old ugly guy!”

And she ran till she got to her hut.

Sunday, February 11, 2007

#67: Awkward


When they saw him the citizens ran,

For the king had an all over tan.

The king glanced at the ground,

And he looked all around,

There was one woman left named Joanne.

#66: So, It didn't Really Happen?

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!

#65: Day 4: Death

Day 4: Death

By the fourth day the battle was done.

Jacob’s army has finally won!

But their win brought on strife

All the men lost their life,

After all, they used nukes not a gun.

Thursday, February 08, 2007

#64: Day 3: Victory...almost

Day 3: Victory…almost

Jacob knew what he needed to do,

They would fight off the army anew.

So they fired a nuke

That they bought from the Duke

And Fred’s hue turned to purple then blue.

#63: Truth and Reconciliation...or not

Day 3: Truth and Reconciliation…or not

As Fred’s army lined up on the street,

In the bay sailed his grand royal fleet.

Jacob started to cry,

For he knew they would die

If they fought him and suffered defeat.

Tuesday, February 06, 2007

#62: Trouble


Then the army of Fred made them pay.

For the loss they had suffered that day.

Once the weapons were gone,

They all hid like a fawn

Now the hunters have turned into prey.

#61: Later that Day

Later that Day…

Young Jacob’s next move was unwise.

He’s in for a fatal surprise.

On the very same night,

Of the step father’s blight

He forgot to lock up their supplies.

#60: Day 2: Temporary Surrender

Day 2: Temporary Surrender

In seconds the battle was done.

The army of Jacob has won.

For the step dad named Fred,

Took his army and fled,

Jacob laughed as he watched them all run.

Saturday, February 03, 2007

#59: Day 1: The Encounter

Day 1: The Encounter

The step dad was raising up hell.

But his methods were done in pell-mell.

Jacob saw the platoon,

Around twenty past noon

And his army charged like a gazelle.

#58: Apocalypse Approaching

Apocalypse Approaching

He finally saw what he’d done,

He killed the queen’s feminine son.

His death would bring wrath,

From his step dad in Bath

O’ the battle has only begun!

#57: Revenge Once More

I know, the queens already been killled, but there's more to this limerick than you think...just wait untill tommorow

Revenge Once More

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.
