My Holidays Limerick

My Holidays Limerick

A cold has me stuffed in the sack
How I sniffle, I sneeze and I hack
The laptop is dusty
Inspiration is fusty
Yet, it feels mighty grand to be back

Oh, the holiday season was fun
Though I’m gleeful the chaos is done
Bye family and friends
Eating fudge had to end
Or we’d all end up weighing a ton

Saint Nick wanted cookies this year
And carrots to feed his reindeer
But Grampy was fast
The treats didn’t last
No cookies for Santa, I fear

You might get a laugh or a shock
To hear we got mittens and socks
A boy named Tornado
Got Legos and Play-Dough
All wrapped in a colorful box

New Years was dreadfully lame
No fireworks bursting in flame
No bubbly or wine
I was snoring by nine
All sickly and achy and tame

The blog suffered scarcely a peek
Between games of hide-and-go-seek
I was tempted to read
But the days passed with speed
And they rapidly turned to weeks!

No, I didn’t prep one single post
of which I can merrily boast
I finished draft two
A feat that will do
Now to blogging or my butt is toast

To my pals in the wide blogosphere
I wish you world peace and good cheer
The blessings of health
In friendship great wealth
And a bountiful, happy new year

This poem was inspired by cough medicine that made me a little loopy. I pre-scheduled it for JUNE and wondered why it didn’t post this morning.

I have a ton of catching up to do! It’s going to take me a bit, but I’ll be over to say “hi” soon. 🙂

    A limerick! Imagine my thrill!
    (Though I’m sorry to learn you were ill.)
    How delightfully grand—
    Even codeine in hand—
    To have managed such skillfulness still!

    (And to all who might claim that a buzz
    Can’t make art become more than it was,
    You’ll be forced to concede—
    (What more proof do you need?)—
    Because D. Wallace Peach says it does.)

    So sorry you got sick 😦 I hope all the viruses stay in 2016 and you have a healthy and happy New Year. Love the picture with your Tornado Boy. It looks like he calms down when sitting in your lap, but a closer look reveals that he is up to something 🙂
