I sat on a volkswagon.today,
it didn't do much.
I sat on a beetle....it squished.

Today I learned a valuable lessson.
When sitting on a volkswagon,
use an elephant.

I love the projected humour, there I saw a wild man from Australia sitting atop an elephant squishing beetles,
There hiding in the folds of his coat a Kookaburra shouting encouragement.
You be careful, use an Indian Elephant they is much quieter..
Lol, Yours, Ian.

Poetry can be anything from limerick to epic as long as it it provokes.

Did you know Barack Obama wrote poetry in college? It's not very good, but it was a good effort and most definitely poetry... so to speak.
We need a workshop on The Limerick.
I won't run it, but I'll join it. I have a book of limericks and they are all disgusting. All of them. Each and every one is baudy and rude.
Maybe you should run it.

I have offered the challenge before, to write a limerick without comic intent. No-one has succeeded yet. It is a very interesting challenge about form versus content.

A poet called Wesley decreed
that limericks were all a misdeed
He failed to mention
that strict attention
to form were part of the deed
