Barking Letters (Limerick)

Barking Letters (Limerick)

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Just another silly one.

"



There was once a poet in Shanghai,
who forgot to dot each of his 'i's
and left the 't's unmarked,
so his 'm's and 'w's barked,
making him poke himself in the eye!

Clever enough to have a few meanings. Well done.

On a very slightly unrelated note... never a trust a kid who always opens his reviews refering to themselves. for example... "reminds me of when i rap..."

Those kinds of people aren't really talking to you about your work, they're just waiting for the chance to talk about their's.

Thanks for the smile, Doc. Some people look down their noses at limericks...probably the same ones who don't think of Robert Service as a poet...but they are a fun, clever bit of rhyme that brings a chuckle...at least it did for me.

Glad it made you smile, Ted. Thank you so much for reading and your words here :)
I'm acutally not a huge fan of limericks. However, this piece was witty! This brought a smile to my face. Even now, as I write, I'm grinning and shaking my head. I thoroughly enjoyed. Great read.

I love this! Great imagination & fun tie-in with writers. I read a couple of your limericks lately & that was part of what led to my "Limerick Uptick" . . . I really love the snappy attitude & rhyme/rhythm of limericks (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Reminds me of when I rap...
Cause I always mix-mash 'em
"I forgot to dot my T's and cross my I's"...
Then blah blah blah

Something like that
