Don't you have like 30 Villanelles to finish before morning, or something?

oh wait, you're judging this thing.

Have I told you how becoming your eyeball avatar is? Its not at all creepy.

You've been taking 'sounding sincere' lessons from Tom, haven't you?

I'd ask for a refund, mate. ;D

I'll need to go and look at his comments on the last thing I posted to decide wether to defend him or not. Till then I'll continue my thoughtful posing. It's amazing how enamored one came become with their own image. Someone should really consider writing about it.

Defend Tom? Man, he has an armaments factory in his basement -- he doesn't need any extra defending! :o

^^^That was all a lie made up by Siobhan. There is no truth in the above statement. The words are complete and total fabrication.

This is a great results announcement, nicely done Ian.

Ok. Time's up and it's also up to me to figure out who won.


Dancing Bears by Mark,
    sincerely made me smile
And Nellie touched my heart
    with her un-lullaby,

I hope CP will get his gifts
    next time St. Nick comes into town
Although I wonder how he could miss
    With tracking numbers written down

All in all I had a ball
   you played along with me
To fourteen liners, one and all
   Maintained their poems to be

But now I must decide and damn!
The winner's Lady 510bhan!
    


Congrats!

Alternating start and end rhymes. Plus internal rhymes. No edit. :p


No way I can try to compete!
sweet Siobhan and Nelly and Poe
Though Mark's stuff is right down my street
T's feats simply beat me so low.

So this time round know
No fine sounds will flow
Neat rhymes make. Then free 'em
Compete not with Ian.

Today's challenge is simple. I want limericks, but I want them sad, somber, and heavy. Irony is likely the shortest route and cheapest, so it'll count against you. ;)

A funeral director from Bath
chastised his best friend when he laughed
at the corpse in the morgue
when it slipped to the floor.
Some respect, would ya, Geoff, donít be daft.


Depressionís gripped Jim now for years,
wide spaces his greatest of fears
and trapped in his room
in the deepening gloom
he spends all his time blotting tears.

She woke every morning in pain
Painkillers she tried all in vain
One day she gave up
And ran under a truck
Her son joined her using a train.

there once was a madman who married
a woman he constantly harried
he would hit her and swear
knocked her down, pulled her hair
and laughed at her when she miscarried
