a thorough search in the Hague
proved the threadfin is rather vague
for all sorts of fishes
turned up at my wishes
so the naming may be a mistague.

MOOSE - MUSTARD

(are you using some kind of book ?)

Loc: this too shall pass
we were hunting the North Woods for moose
when our hound dog (named Rover) got loose
he got into the mustard
and also the custard
but Rover came back smelling of goose

ODZOOKS .. OFF

The apprentice exclaiming "Odzooks!"
Earned the worst of the alchemist's looks;
He explained, with a cough,
"I was just j***ing off,
And you won't find that word in your books."

beck has suggested that we start a new thread: Sparteye's Limerick Game. but we might as well continue to play with the concept here before we splinter off.

where's our new pair, beck?

should we require use of "the target words as the A and B of your rhyme scheme", as in the last couple of entries (perhaps reverse lines 3 and 4 of beck's).

should we follow the typical limerick form; i.e., one slightly risque sentence, as in beck's last?

these 'impositions' prolly makes things that much more difficult, but.

I say we leave it loose on this thread. Maybe others will be inspired - we already have a few good takers. We can set new, obnoxiously difficult rules if we open another thread.

Oops. The new words are...

GRINGO - GRONINGEN

Please do not set rules on scansion. Limericks scan, I think, as lines 1,2,5 in tetrameter and 3,4 in trimeter (iambic). That is way way way too much work. If I put in so much work and I will want to frame the limerick in gold and put it up on my wall.

There once was a poet - a gringo -
Who wrote poems in his own native lingo.
From Dallas to Groningen
He made us all groan again,
And here's his new limerick. Bingo!

DEATHBED - DECADE
