A Tuesday meme
Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
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.
