Well folks, I recently found out that the limerick below, my entry for the November/December 2014 Saturday Evening Post limerick contest, did not even earn an honorable mention. After reading the published entries, my only explanation is that in my rush to enter I thought it was a picture of a girl? 🙂 Nevertheless, I want to thank Esther Newton for posting about the contest and other market ideas for writers.
Any who/what/why/when/where, here is my limerick describing J.C. Leyendecker’s illustration After Turkey Nap.
Thanksgiving dinner was pure bliss
Turkey with gravy can’t miss
However the wish bone was left unbroken
‘Cause the pumpkin pie had spoken
And dreams now her mind do kiss
Limerick by Steven S. Walsky, November 19, 2014.
Why not give it a try and write a limerick for the next contest.
