Limerick of the Day

Hey, why was there no Pulitzer Prize?
My books were out there for all the judges’ eyes.
So now Hemingway up in heaven drinks for me,
Steinbeck says, “Well, that sure stinks” for me,
And Faulkner just stands in the corner and cries.

In honor of President Obama roasting Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, here’s a limerick from a while back:
Obama’s plane had just been boarded
For his African visit, it was reported,
But according to Trump,
This foreigner’s rump
Was actually being deported.

His arms were sinewy and long,
With the tattoo “MOTHER” across biceps so strong.
As his parent and teacher,
She’d been a mean, petty creature,
Always scrawling her name where it didn’t belong.

Costco keeps improving its bins,
As one product ends another begins.
Its wine department is new,
Its adoption agency is too,
But the catch is you have to take twins.

For his Veep Romney must choose a gal or guy
Whose intellectual standards are reasonably high.
When rolling the dice
Don’t make the same mistake twice,
Remember: Once Palin, twice shy.

Starting on Monday, I’ll be posting the limericks only on my own Facebook Wall. I hope you’ll drop by and visit, if you don’t already.
Readers from Miami to St. Paul,
Are reading TUF and having a ball.
They’re yelling all over town,
“I can’t put this book down!”
(That flypaper cover was the right call.)

Here’s the weekend edition of “You Finish the Limerick”:


I’d like to travel afar
By plane or by boat or by car
And it’s not too strange, is it?
That the place I’d most like to visit…
(Add last line here.)
