My Royal Court

20 December 2011


The Tuesday Haiku is taking a detour this week to make way for this lovely limerick to adorn the page.  Let me preface this post by saying that it is fictional (hmm...), and the rhyme scheme is indeed correct.  There are two pronunciations for the final word.  In this case, place the stress on the second syllable.  Shame on you for thinking I'd use lexemes incorrectly.

There is a young woman named Lola.
Who often imbibes rum and cola.
She started her blog
After she was deep-sixed by a frog.
Now she writes while traveling by gondola.


  1. Cute, but now I have this stuck in my head:

    Drinkin' rum and Coca-Cola
    Go down Point Koomahnah
    Both mother and daughter
    Workin' for the Yankee dollar!!

  2. I LOVE IT! I feel like a star. I think I am a star. I think I'm a shooting star. Thank you, Your Majesty.

    Your faithful servant,

  3. Hhahah I think I like limericks better than haikus. They're catchier. You can sing them.

  4. LD - haha!

    LOLA - :)

    GIA - I find them that way as well.

  5. Your Majesty,

    I find myself here at least once everyday so I can read the perfect limerick. I can live on this happiness for at least two or three more days.

    Your faithful and loving servant,

  6. I'm just visiting my limerick again. I'll try not to get in the way.

    With gratitude to Your Majesty,
