Limericks of Love

The Day the War Ended and the World Healed

To everyone who has ever loved anyone. To anyone who has ever loved everyone. To lovers, to haters, to procrastinators. To moms, to dads, to everyone, everywhere, this is for you.

I’d like to thank each of the people below who have made this journey of words an incredibly special series of moments for me. I have deep respect and admiration for each of you in how I have come to know your unique personas.

And without further ado, please allow me to rhyme with you…

Jennifer McDougall

Let my words be heard, Lady McDougall,
With love to spread, I shall not be frugal,
I laugh, then pee
When reading thee
And love the sounds of your bawdy bugle.

Michael Burg, MD (AKA Medium Michael Burg)

What’s up Doc? It’s about time that we talked
Unsure where you were when the world got rocked
But here you are now
You are the how
Earth’s vibration just went up a whole notch!

Terry Trueman

True Man the Terry was quite contrary
When a Bard barged in mindlessly merry,
My rhymes are tricky!
Well, I’ve got a Wiki!
Now let us ask, who’s the dingleberry?

Will Hull

From first ink your pen did mighty words flow,
Dashing and darting from hither to fro.
My crown is right spacious;
My mood is quite gracious;
Thy truce accepted, your equal unknown.

Jupiter Grant

Lavishly lost in your sweet gravity
You are the one I was coming to see
Tagged all around
Lost and then found
A moment again, forever we meet.

Skye Mo'ipulelehua Kahoali'i

If I wrote a song, I’d let you sing it
I feel the love and know you would bring it
The Light inside me
Sets us both free
Your Light is Fire, let’s keep that flame lit.

Dave Logan

Entirely bonkers, like all the best
“Standing on the Moon” to at first impress
One at a time
Will do just fine
I dig what you lay down, I must confess.

Ann Marie Steele

A lonely sadness ate at my gladness
I failed you twice to call from my madness
Write me now
Solemn my vow
Will you be the light to bright this darkness?

To the World:

A Limerick We All Can Relate To

When given a choice between war and love;
When words become weapons of push and shove,
Remember this:
There’s also a kiss
Because everyone is someone’s true love.

This is ALL possible because of the Good Doctor’s prompt:

“An invitation to limerick about love.”

I love to rhyme, often sensually. I have to write, otherwise insanity. I leave my heart on paper. Feel free to feel my feels. I comment lovingly and completely.
