and received an Honorable Mention!
The RULES: She writes a limerick and you write your own, using the same first line, though the winners seem to change them leaving the last word only: A woman felt terribly bored…* or A gal on a corporate board…* or A fellow who slept on a board….* or A youngster complained he was bored…* or A fellow was cutting a board…* or An animal burrowed and bored…*
Then you post your limerick on her blog or if you’re a Facebook user, on Facebook too.
The best submission gets crowned Limerick Of The Week or an Honorable mention!
Here's my two entries:
A woman felt terribly bored
By each conquest she entered and scored
On a scale one to ten
She would judge all her men
With a zero for any who snored!
A youngster complained he was bored
Though the cost of his living had soared
With his gizmos piled high
His mum prayed to the sky
That her offspring were exiled abroad.
