A BARHOP WHO LIVED IN LAGRANGE

G. David Schwartz

A barhop who lived in Lagrange

Decided that his life was quite strange

And sipping a beer

He said “It’s quite clear,

That no one looks forward to change”

I ONCE KNEW A GIRL NAMED MISS GRUNDGE

G. David Schwartz

NOTE: May 12th is Limerick Day.

A limerick is a silly poem with five lines. They are often funny or nonsensical.  Limericks were made famous by Edward Lear, a famous author who wrote the “Book of Nonsense” in the 1800’s. This was an entire book of silly limericks.

How to write a limerick:

The first, second and fifth lines rhyme with each other and have the same number of syllables (typically 8 or 9).
The third and fourth lines rhyme with each other and have the same number of syllables (typically 5 or 6).  
Limericks often start with the line “There once was a…” or “There was a…”

I once knew a girl names Miss Grundge

At liquids she surely would lunge

Her quivering lips

Would reach to her hips

As she soaked up the drinks like a sponge.

LIZZY IN A TIZZY

Fran Welts

The following limerick refers to how my grandmother handled her anger:

There once was a woman named Lizzie,
Who often got worked up in a tizzy,
About things of no matter,
She would beat up the batter,
For so long she would often get dizzy!
