Poll is open: Limerick Chick 2012 Round 1

March 4, 2012

in Limerick Chick

Eight poems came in under the wire
Five lines each has to inspire
They mention blog friends
The fun never ends
Of reading them, I do not tire.

Eight entries have been divided into two flights. Below you’ll find four entries for the first set. Vote for your favorite one by Wednesday morning (poll is active for 72 hours from the time of posting).

The top vote-getter will advance to the Final round, which begins Friday, March 11. On St Patrick’s Day, I’ll announce the winning limerick, according to the voters. I am so glad I don’t have to make the decision, because as always, each of the entries is absolutely limericious.

Flight 1 entries

1. Kathy
For years she was known as Calliope,
designing mastheads and caring for Mille.
When W was born,
mothering became her new norm.
Dresden ditched her alias and felt free.

2. Kim Leatherdale

There once was a bantering bird
whose song was like none ever heard.
She met with a guru
who taught her what he knew,
and she flew away singing, “What merde!”

3. Lakewood, CO Macaroni Kid

Being a mom can be hard
It certainly contributed to this extra lard
I was blessed with three boys
They refuse to pick up their toys
But with the help of Macaroni Kid, I have yet to blow my lid!

4. Keiko Zoll

Who’s the gangsta who makes blogging foxy?
This rockstar who knocks off my socks, see -
she’s a Smart One (with sass)
who takes names and kicks ass;
she’s The Smartness: JW Moxie!

Congratulations to Keiko, who advances to the Final Round!

It’s hard to vote in this round, knowing that whoever wins it will be up against me. Luckily, I have Keiko in my limerick, so I know I’ll have her vote next round :-)

Mwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaa

Here I am falling behind in the early running! However, it is just so much fun to be playing with words with those who enjoy the same.
Good luck to all the happy contest writers and to the voters!
