Here’s to a great new week! Your new limerick challenge is as follows:
Your challenge last week was to write a limerick using the word BLIND in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:
Before this new verselet I write,
Looking fearful that I may take flight.
I must needs go in blind
Never sure that I’ll find
Dame Muse with her sweet guiding light.
There was a man named Matt
Who seemed as blind as a bat
His eyes were good
It was how he wore his hat.
There was a girl named Dee
Who totally blind-sided me
In she flew
Out of the blue
And hit before I could see.
There once was a girl oh so blind
She sought love, yet couldn’t find
In clubs nor in pubs
But she kept concert stubs
The memories at least were so kind.
I’m in a really big bind
I want to search and find
The silver and gold
At rainbows end, told
But I can’t cos I’m blind!
‘Buying fruit,’ young Thomas opined,
‘Is a risky business if you’re partially blind;
The staff all think I’m utterly hopeless
And one old woman told me to grope less,
Cos I can’t tell ripe melons from a pert behind.’
In Hollywood, greed is good, love is blind
On streets of gold, so I’m told, all are kind
As time goes by,
you will see it’s a lie
Or you’ll be fooled… if you’re that way inclined.
