The Queen's Meme #11 ~ Not Loud. Not Raucous. Not Poetry.

Welcome to
The Queen's Meme #11.
A Tuesday meme
Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.

Always fun!

Step out of the box. Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours.

And please, stay out of the dungeon.
You don't want to go there.

The directions: This week the questions are sheer poetry. Nonsensical. Cerebral. Challenging. The answers should be too. You can use more than one word to fill the blank but the end words must rhyme appropriately. Now fill in the blanks with the limericks I've given you. Don't think about them too much. Usually the first word that pops in your head can be used to make a very funny poem. Try it! (Hat tip: Edward Lear)

The Poetry Meme: Not Loud. Not Raucous. Not Poetry

1.There was an Old Man of Lune,
Who lived upon the crescent moon;
When that did not shine,
He took lots of red wine,
That nasty Old Man of The Lune.

2. There was a Young Lady whose dishes,
Were unique as to color and fishes;
When she opened them steaming,
People all turned away screaming,
And started away in rude wishes.

3. There was a Young Lady of Bloomers

Who casually sat on a rumor;
When the door squeezed her tail,She exclaimed, 'Where's my mail?'
This courageous Young Lady of Bloomers.

4.There was an Old Man with a pipe,
Who bumped at it day and night;
But they called out, 'Stop now!
You're a horrid old Sow!'
So they smashed that Old Man with a pipe.

5. There was a Young Lady whose sleep,
Came untied when the birds sate on creeps;
But she said: 'I don't care!
All the birds in the lairAre welcome to sit on my sleep!'

6. There was an Old Man of The Tango,
Who never knew what he should mango;
So he tore off his wig,
And behaved like a pig,
That intrinsic Old Man of The Tango.

7. There was an Old Man of the East,
Who had the most curious Beast;
For while he was happy,
He slept on a pappy.
That funny Old Man of The East.

He sat on a pappy??!

Mimi seriously needs sleep.


My Queen. Please excuse my forwardness, but I dost believe thou mind is on peace globes and blue kingdoms...Get thou to a nunnery...or send this MEME to the dungeon!

Mimi Lenox said...

LadyHighTower - Do speak your mind. Don't like the meme? Is that what you said? You DON'T like my meme?? I'm shocked that you would speak to me in this fashion.

Are you trying to get incarcerated again?

P.S. My mind is on something else for sure. But that's no reason to scold me. I might be a Queen but I have feelings ya know.

I'll just be going now. I need to find Homer and scream at him. He won't mind. He's used to it.

Fine rhymes, Mimi. I'm really flattered you like mine so much. It made the effort very worthwhile.

Finding Pam said...

Nice rhyming must need more sleep because you seem a little bit grumpy.

I thought my limerick would amuse you not send me to the dungeon. Did you forget how scared of mice I am?

Will there be anymore visitors to the dungeon? What is the atire and do I have to do the dishes?

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Grinning. You sure do! I'll be right over to see them soon!

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - Your answers were really creative and wonderful. Everyone thought so!

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - I thought you looked lovely (as usual) upon your arrival. We're ordering in pizza tonight. You don't have to do the dishes. And I'll send Homer down to sleep with you tonight if you're scared of the mice. Okay?

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

I like #6 :D
Why is Pam in the dungeon?

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - Well, not Shakespeare, but fun!

Pam is in the dungeon because I wanted some nice company down there. Travis and Julie are too. And besides she wrote "Off to the dungeon she cajoled" in her meme.
I granted her wish!

But she looks lovely just the same.
She's skeered of mice though...I may have to have pity on her. Poor thing.

Anonymous said...

Well I enjoyed your poetry! Well done!

Finding Pam said...

You know that is not even funny! You're making fun out of my mouse episode. Since then, I have had another encounter with a mouse. Can you hear me crying cause I'm scared of mice? Really scared...

I am glad that you will be there with us and that I do not have to do the dishes. I hope that you have some sort of entertainment for me because I get bored easily.

I hope we can get a pedicure while I am in the dungeon? I'll have my people call your people about my other needs.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mejis - Thank you, Mejis!

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - Seriously though...the mouse thing is not funny. I mean NOT funny. I feel your pain.

On the other are cracking me up.
