Limericks 1

Lacking in Wit
Submitted to Mad Kane's Humor blog with prompts:

A man who was lacking in wit and
A gal who was lacking in wit


A man who was lacking in wit
Kept sending lots of tweets
But his messages rang of balmy
Were not even half as funny
And he grinned when called a half-wit

A gal who was lacking in wit
Decided to fashion some knits
Wasn’t a smart decision
There were lots of derision
But was happy to be dubbed a (k)nit-wit

Submitted to deVerse Open Link Night #4 and to Poetry Pantry #61

Inspired by Madeleine Kane's Limerick Humor Blog with prompts provided

  3. Yes those awful tweets
    Really can't hit the right beats
    So I hit block
    Not wanting to gock
    And empty some follower seats

    haha nicely done!
