And the shamrock goes to…

by Lori Lavender Luz on March 17, 2010

in Limerick Chick

(drumroll………………………………)

Erica (Parenthood for Me) extends her winning streak to two with this limerick, which garnered 40% of the nearly 200 votes cast:

I’m an Irish gal who drinks whisky
Sometimes I go home and get frisky.
When the good deed is done.
I’m Wishing 4 One.
Or at least eat some spam and some latke.

Alana‘s poem had lots of fans, too — a valiant contest all the way around. I declare all 8 of the finalists Limeristas Extraordinaire.

Erica is donating her prize money to Share Southern Vermont, which serves families grieving the loss of a child through pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or infant death. And check out how Erica’s own organization helps others to build their families.

Thanks to each of the entrants and finalists — we’ll do it all again next year!

Happy St Patrick’s Day, peoples.
