Ironic Limerick

There was a young lass who loved words;
And the way they took flight, just like birds.
She read and she read
Til’ a book smacked her dead.
Then the mourners came calling in herds.


  1. Awww, thanks, Carole! I love writing them, especially ones that make me laugh. My secret hope is to make a Shel Silverstein-like poem book one day. I loved reading his poetry when I was a kid.

  2. That is fantastic Jess! I know you would love this book: Big Chickens by Leslie Helakoski, you'll love her style. I could read it all day, along with your poems! Have a great weekend Jess!

  3. Oh, yes, Big Chickens is awesome. There's also Big Chickens Fly the Coop and Big Chickens Go to Town. I could read them over and over and over.
