Thought for the Day 27 July 2017

Today, I remembered a little used style of poem that used to be popular. They are called Limericks. Here’s an example.

“There was an old lady from Ryde.

Who ate some green apples and died.

The apples fermented inside the lamented.

And made cider inside her inside.”

These types of poems can be used in many places like greetings cards, or posts on social media, or Blogs or, just for fun, in conversations at social events. They can be silly or funny or romantic or downright rude. I know one that is downright rude but I don’t dare to even think of including that one here. Instead, here’s a silly one.

“When shooting hippopotamus,

use bullets made of platinum.

For, if you use the leaden ones,

its hide is sure to flatten ‘em.”

So my thought for today is for those of you guys who are in a relationship or trying to get into one.  

 “When trying to win your lovers heart,

do not forget poetic art.

There’s no better way to charm your chick,

than choicest words in a limerick!”

Nothing ventured, nothing gained, hey?
