A Limerick A Day – Day 16 & 17 – For Better or Verse



Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The midway mark of my foolhardy ambitious Limerick-A-Day challenge has passed – and the rhymes keep coming, albeit sometimes a bit belatedly.

Because my kids and I just got back last night from our Spring Break road trip after driving most of the day, yesterday’s and today’s posts have been combined into one post with two limericks. The second one was inspired by being in Colorado, where the legalization of marijuana is still making headlines in the Mile-High City, appropriately enough.


For Better or Verse

Half a month gone, for better or worse,
And I’ve written some limericks diverse –
Now it’s St. Patty’s Day
And though rhyme doesn’t pay,
I just figured that I’d risk a verse.


Pot of Gold

A leprechaun, wizened and old,
Had retirement plans rather bold:
Spend what money he’d got
All just to grow pot –
Now he’s turned all that green into gold.
