Ditty Limer-ICK

There once was a poet from Kalamazoo
Whose poetry reading got a mixed review
While performing a ditty
This lyricist got spitty
And the front row was wishing for tissue


Try your hand at a DITTY poem at the lovely Michelle Heidenrich Barnes's blog Today's Little Ditty. 

And for all kinds of poetry on this Friday visit Written Reflections.

Ha! You see so much that I would miss, Bridget, like Limer-ICK. Very fun, love all this about ditties.

Michelle Heidenrich Barnes said...

And this is why I NEVER sit in the front row... you never know what might end up in your face (or your lap). Thanks for this fun addition to the ditty-fest, Bridget!

Tabatha said...

Hats off to you for rhyming "ditty" with "spitty"! Like Linda, I missed the "ick" in "limerick" :-)

Mary Lee said...

HA! This reminds me of my American History teacher in HS. Front row sitters learned to watch that white blob forming on his bottom lip and to get ready to duck when it flew!

Too funny! I'm going to share it with our middle schoolers!

Thanks for creating and sharing your Limer-ICK. I responded to Michelle's challenge with some silliness (not sophisticated, expert humor like yours): a tongue twister and knock-knock joke; wanted to do a Limerick to round out the silly trilogy, but had reached my silliness limit for one night & decided to hold off for Mar. 17th. Reading your Limer-ICK tells me, silly or not, I better up my game. What a great response to Michelle's challenge you have created. Thank you! Happy Valentine's Day!

Laughing here (in Kalamazoo! Well, out in the sticks, but Kalamazoo is our city.)

Thanks, Jama! Spitty ditties are ewww indeed! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Linda! Spit is ICK, luckily it fit with my limerick. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank YOU, Michelle for your fun ditty challenge. Front row seats are a mixed blessing in most situations, saliva aside. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Tabatha! My sense of humor takes me in some strange directions. =)

Bridget Magee said...

I had a teacher like that, too! My 7th grade teacher, Sister Mary! Amazing the things we remember about our teachers - the reach of their saliva. hee-hee =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Carol! I hope your students like it - spit jokes are popular with the middle school set. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, CB! I'm looking forward to reading your ditty silliness. Your poetry game is always on track. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Penny! This was a fun ditty to attempt. =)

Bridget Magee said...

You are NOT the Kalamazoo poet I was thinking of, Buffy, because all your reviews are always stellar (and you keep your saliva to yourself.) =)
