BREVET - BRIGHT

A mere brevet poet am I,
And though others would pass this thread by,
Iíll do such as I might
To keep the flame bright -
Hereís two words so the thread shall not die

INCULCATE - INDENT

I'm not sure what your problem(s) is/are. A limerick is a structure, not a cultural statement. It requires you to think through the rhymes while, at the same time, trying to make some sense and include the set words (in this case). It is a five-line poem. The content can be subtle and poetic or it can be a linguistic sledgehammer. As in all poetry. Years ago we used to play all kinds of poetry games here. This was one of the really fun ones.

I think I've made a mistake coming back. Easily rectified.

As always, CapK, these plays suit some and not others. Those of us who enjoy get on with it and acknowlege that the others wish to stay away. Avy and Branny have stated their position . That's OK, at least we know why they don't take part, but the rest of us get onwith it and enjoy the contributions of non-participants to this thread in their valuable contributions on other ones.
I can't see that there is any problem, here!

Ye cannot please all the people all of the time,
and some, never.

I try writing the limericks, but am not very good.
But I love reading them.

Donna' let the miserables drive ye away.

I tried to inculcate each day
In my creditors, "Yes, I will pay."
Now my assets are spent
and my purse sides indent.
[Shrug.] My attitude: "Diem? Carpe!"

If I've understood correctly (and I'm not sure I have), we're looking at two different issues here. I think, Avy, that your objection is not to limericks, but to maliciousness, venom, personal attacks, and I have no argument with you there. Bran, I'm not sure if your objection is to having a steady diet of limericks in this particular thread, or having them anywhere in the forum. Several of us, at least, thoroughly enjoy what we perceive as an invigorating challenge, and find the sharing of (perhaps alleged) wit stimulating. We can separate the threads, if you like, but I certainly have no desire to stop sharing limericks, nor do I object to anyone using any other form, whether sentence or sonnet, to keep Sparteye's Game alive and lively. Please set me straight if I'm off course here, PM if you prefer.

From my point of view, Peter, you hit the nail on the head.
