(Limerick below the cartoon.)

The blogger am I, busy blogging,
Most certainly up the net clogging,
Bent over my ‘puter,
This bad web polluter,
The wife says I should be out jogging.

Poor John is a husband so bitter,
He married the best of the litter,
At least, so he thought,
‘Til she nagged him for naught,
So now on the roof he’s a sitter.

Can you find the Bible verse this limerick is based on?

Sometimes, the combination of a serious theme with a frivolous format provides a study in contrast.

It’s late, but bin Laden is dead,
He now faces judgment ahead,
The Christian is torn,
If he ought to mourn,
Or if he should party instead.

A friend, motivated by my poem a day during Poetry Month, decided to do a limerick a day during May. More power to him! He’s sharing them with a few of us, but I don’t think he’s putting this online. If he does, I’ll link to it. But his limericks inspired me to do a few. Here’s one of them.

Young Sam thought it good to be witty,
He wrote with a twist and a ditty,
So bad was his wit,
That his mom bid him quit,
And everyone cried, “He’s a pity!”

My granddaughter’s name is Eden. She went to the zoo on Saturday. So here’s my poem of the day for her. That’s her pic below, taken at the zoo.

Eden at the zoo

EDEN’S ZOO LIMERICK

My granddaughter went to the zoo,
For hippos, giraffe, kangaroo;
She growled at the bears, caught the lion unawares,
But never saw Winnie the Pooh.
