Belly on up to the voting booth for the 2010 Limerick Chick Contest.
Poll is on the upper-right sidebar ===>
Thirty 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.
Because of the large number of entries, we’ll have three flights. Below you’ll find the 10 entries for the first set. Vote for your favorite one before Friday morning at 9 am.
The top two vote-getters will advance to the Final round, which begins March 12.
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 each of the 30 entries below is absolutely limericious.
Flight 1 Entries
There once was a superhero named Kym
who partnered with Miss W, her IM
They made me laugh ’til I cried
and my son nearly died*
all from a convo started on a whim
In this world of IF I’ve been dumped,
Despite my husband having humped.
Gals like Mrs. Gamgee pull me through,
We still hope one day it will be true…
That our stomachs will be baby bumped.
3. Miss Tori
My eggs, they were a cookin‘,
But good they were not lookin‘.
And just like JourneyGirl,
Bruce and I took a whirl,
And now the fats a bookin‘!
4. Stirrup Queen
There once was a Dragondreamer
Who was quite the post weaver
She contemplated UFOs
And crocheted hats with bows
And nothing ever seemed to peeve her.
5. Wishing 4 One
I live in the land of pharaohs
where baby makin’s been dry as scarecrows
Been sayin’ is 2010 my year yet?
And saying over and over again Are We There Yet?
Hey I’m Trying not to scream
but damn i’m an Anxious Mummy indeed!
6. Miss La
Twelve pregnant gals at once I know,
And still here am I with no beau,
“All in good time,”
My friends do chime.
If their babes wed ere me- Oh no!!
No I’m not pregnant just fat
Would love to have a child named Matt
I hope stirrup socks
don’t bring her hard knocks
or else she might adopt a childlike cat
8. Kristin 2
Infertility, needles, and loss
are three things we’d want to toss
like garbage in a can
Instead we will band
Into groups ‘cause of Mel whose the boss
9. Tori 2
Too many pounds I’ve got
I need to lose a lot.
I got the band
It gives me a hand
To reach The Sweet Spot.
10. Stirrup Queen 2
Lindsay, obsessed with her Greys
Could sit on the sofa for days
And stare at McDreamy
Without getting screamy
Though Patrick makes it hard to behave
