This week I’m composing a brilliant (yes, sarcasm is part of Bad Limerick Wednesday) verse about Jo.
There once was a Milky way
That on Jo Gartner’s shirt went astray
It didn’t stay new
But melted into goo
And she…ate it anyway
If you’ve read the Underdead books, you’ll know that I’ve captured Jo at home in her sweats when no one is around.
Be honest, you’d eat it too. Surely you’ve eaten something off your shirt before?
And yes, I realize I seem to be unclear on the concept of Limerick Wednesday, seeing as it is Tuesday. Not to worry–I feel a few Thursday postings in my future. It will allll average out.
I can see Jo doing this. Or you. Or me!
Shhh! We’re supposed to be perfect in every way! We–hold on. Let me just get this last bit of caramel off my sleeve here….
I can see it. For me, it’d have to be a milky way dark, bite size like you see at Halloween. 😉
Oh dear, the bite-sized ones are particularly dangerous. I’m not sure why that is but I DO like the idea that someone, somewhere has it their job to figure out why. I don’t know why more people don’t want to major in science–I mean how cool is that job?
This limerick had me at “There once was a Milky Way.” I also like how the limerick works regardless of whether the reader is visualizing the candy bar or the galaxy in which we live 🙂
I had to read it again after that. 😉 You are spot on as usual.
