Some Sample Limericks
I couldn't resist -- I didn't really try -- and I am quite unapologetic.
Here are some limericks to inspire you to enter the Groundhog Day Limerick Contest. All but one are on the American Fork theme; the last is simply out of bounds. For reasons of my own, I offer no Groundhog Day examples at this time.
Brother Adams his wagon did park,
Then, surveying the land, did say, "Hark!
This resembles a river!
I think I could live here!"
It's called now American Fark.
Watching UDOT bisect our downtown,
Will we do something? Will we just frown?
Seven lanes? What a fright!
Frankly, five don't delight.
Who thought this up? Some big-city clown?
Did you know Mayor Thompson's a poet?
His translations from French plainly show it.
It may seem rather strange,
Such a cultural range
In a man we've elected, I know it.
Off the topic:
Mayor Rocky's campaign to go national
Is succeeding, if not fully rational.
Anti-war folks get swoonish.
I find him cartoonish --
As, in time, the political fashion'll.
