Limerick Contest

The Richmond Times-Dispatch Newspaper in conjunction with Dominion Virginia Power and Borders is sponsoring a Limerick contest. The contest provides 7 words, from which you must choose 2 of the words to write your limerick. You get bonus points for using more of the words. A limerick is a 5-line humorous poem with an AABBA rhyme scheme. This particular limerick contest has chosen the following words: retinue, agile, brackish, garrulous, idyllic, clamber, and patina. I like participating in things that are really outside my scope of experience. Things that I really have no business touching. But here is my current limerick on paper. Once I was finished, I realized 'gosh Thomas, kinda gloomy.' I figure my subconscious must have been leaning on the side of annoyed with a certain gender.


Idyllic and warm the woman’s womb
Burst patina of the brackish room
Clamber, stand, agile feet
Garrulous girls make you neat
Then drag male retinue to their doom


You'll notice I used all 7 words, so I really must have been focusing on my grind.

What do you think?

By the way, I leaped over Feb. 29th in retaliation.
