Details

As many of you may know, Isaac Asimov--the man who knew everything about everything--was an inveterate limerick writer. Many a writer has admitted defeat against him in contest, saying there wasn't a word that could rhyme that he couldn't write a limerick for.

However, Asimov himself had no such illusion. He admitted to three or four words that he'd never found limerick for. So here's your chance. Can you beat the legendary Asimov at his own game?

Fashion a limerick with one of the following words in the rhyming positions:
Silver
Betelgeuse
Month
Purple
Ethiopia
Film
Orange

As many of you are unfamiliar with the construction of limericks I've submitted my own for you to see. These will not be graded in the contest. The title is "Limerick" and a friend has submitted since I'm not allowed to.

Prizes

Warm fuzzies and round tuits
