I couldn't help but notice that this forum is a little slow of late.

In the interests of getting some creative juices flowing here is a challenge.

Write a limerick!

You know, one of those funny little rhymes...

The only complication is you have to write a square limerick. What on earth ia a square limerick you ask? Well, it's quite simple. It's a limerick where the first line reads across and also down through the first words. The same with the last line.

I'll show you (it really isn't as easy as it sounds...)

limerick games we shall play
games writing at home and away
we finished he shouts
Shall we go out?
Play away shouts out betray

Ok, anyone else think they can do it?

For the ones who don't know how to write a limerick, here's a guide by Pagewise (http://vtvt.essortment.com/limerickpoetry_nug.htm).

This eHow (http://www.ehow.com/eHow/eHow/0%2C1053%2C3332%2C00.html) writer does the stressing of the beat that Sammie said.

Ok, my mistake - the point here is to try the 'square' approach instead of the rigid beating. (I admit 'as well' would be pretty damn difficult!). 'Pologies for confusing the issue!!!

Ok you big bunch of meanies.

You're obviously not going to join in until I show you I know what a limerick actually is.

This is indeed a limerick and it is indeed square. It doesn't make much sense but you can't have it all...

A girl from southwest Timbuktoo
girl, man, boy and a blue kangaroo
from southeast, northwest and
southwest formed up a band
Timbuktoo, Kangaroo and band blue

Ok?

Now am I the only person who wants to write in this writing forum? :p

Yeah yeah, I know you. You're sat there in that great big leather chair in front of the fire, a cordless keyboard on your lap with the oak panelling open to reveal a giant plasma-screen monitor. I can just see the butler standing at the ready in the shadows with a bottle of that lovely vintage ruby from your cellar on a silver tray, the servants polishing the armour and oiling the swords.

No time my foot!

P.S. :p:p:p

Little fly upon the wall,
Have you got no sense at all?
Can't you see that wall is plastered?
Now you're stuck you stupid...er...fly :)

Addressing the same Fly,Watson. :)

Fly ,fly! and the cholera-fly flew,
restoring her fluids,with mountain dew,
her Camp toxins, she calls ' a bliss'!
folding her lips, bent down to kiss
a nextdoor spider, she knew. :eek:

Suitably irreverant, I feel...

I stupidly possibly thought that,
Stupidly having dropped my hat,
Possibly then I
Thought that I could fly.
That, landing, I wouldn’t just go ‘splat’


Only one dropped beat that I could see..... *tears out hair in fury at mean, nasty second line*
