National Limerick Day!

May 12 is the birthday of limerick originator Edward Lear and has become known and celebrated as National Limerick Day in his honor. To celebrate properly, you should come up with your own witty limerick.

I make no claims that the limerick I submit is witty… there are far better out there.  I did however want to at least TRY to come up with something original.  Also?  I need more coffee.


A sweet southern belle with great charm

Is a treasure to have on your arm

But cross her just once

And you’ll feel like a dunce

Cause she’s good with a firearm
