My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Leaping Limericks

Ms. Kane sets the first line and the rest is up to you...
Here's mine:

As the new year approaches, gals swear
When they face the New Year with a dare
That although they may fail
They’ll propose to their male
Cos it’s leap year, when such things are fair.

As the new year approaches, men swear
To dispose of their old underwear
As their grubby old briefs
Rouse disparaging shrieks
From the gals they invite to their lair.

This one has received the honourable mention accolade
As the new year approaches, men swear
With words that hang blue in the air
That they’ll never admit
That they’ve been quite a sh*!
To their gals through the previous year.
As the new year approaches, gals swear
That their hubby’s old socks they’ll repair
With some make do and mend
They’ll increase their stipend
So they’ve more they can spend on their hair.

We've had torrential rain and gales enough to wake the dead these past days and nights or make the awoken, like me, feel like death ! LOL!
I hope this year to ignore my inner demons, good and bad and submit more writing for publication.

How will you leap into the New Year with your writing?

Oh BTW It appears we have a tie for the Cool as a Cucumber Blogfest entries:

So congrats and thanks to everyone.
