|Below is the humorous limerick I wrote in reply to Mad Kane’s prompted to write a limerick which has the phrase “…was trying his hand” in the first line. I posted on her site but am also posting it here, instead of on my Poetry blog, because I wanted to add this poll and the political/religious issue. How do you think I will do in Kane’s limerick contest? Is my limerick too politically incorrect to touch? If you are a blogger please take the poll on the right.My opinion: With this last week of embassy burnings and murders, does such humor give you a chill. If so, then the fundamentalists are winning.|
