Magpie 230



Seeing Susan, Felicity said,
"What on earth have you got on your head?"
"Don't you like it?" said Sue,
"Well, I can't afford new,
So it came from the lamp by my bed."

    1. This doesn't rhyme or scan but I am just ignorant. Brilliant as always. Sure are you that you haven't got a Belloc gene in you.

    3. I know nothing about meter except that limericks are anapaestic and strictly AABBA. It's one of those quirky things I know but as I have absolutely no idea what anapaestic means it's never been any use to me - until now. It seems to me that this is limerick meter and form so I think it's ok.

      Does it matter? Not a jot. It's funny.

  2. Brilliant. It seems to rhyme ( and scan, though not entirely sure what that means!) to me!

    1. I think Adrian's first comment was a poem, and he was referring to that. I think...

  3. I hope she took the little wire doodah out first, or it's going to get jolly uncomfortable.

    1. Of course she did. She's a very bright (cue groan) girl.

    1. Yvonne, I wish I didn't feel compelled to do these, but I find them a weekly challenge that often won't let go...

    2. I know what you mean - but for me, it's the image that makes me want to fiddle with it - probably just as big a challenge...LOL
      I take my hat off to you for pursuing the limerick laugh-a-minute, though.
