Trifextra: a 33 word laugh


There once was a gardener from Kent
who never could take a quick hint
he pulled out some wild flowers
then he used magical powers
to induce a sweet damsel to get hitched.


This week’s Trifextra prompt. Charles Dickens, in A Christmas Carol, wrote “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” We are giving you exactly 33 words to make us laugh out loud and spread some festive cheer.

(Oh well, gave it the old college try.)

The man from Cush

There once was a man from near Cush
who fell lightly upon his great tush
he’d been out a drinkin
so no surprise he kept sinkin
then he hid out behind a great bush.


Free Verse


A man with a great meaty tush
is not what one would call a great catch
unless of course it implies
he has a large bank account hidden by.

A woman with a great meaty tush
was a beauty of another age
when florid forms were all the rage
as we’ve seen in paintings of yore.

Tushes are an interesting gauge
of how people spend all their days
if they sit and work without walking
then maybe they tend to be flat.

Ok…I’ve done some sillyness for this prompt!  Have a great week.

And he’d take children riding to an fro.

persimmons and frost

Limerick 3

While walking to the sea near Dundee
I came upon a beautiful tree
it was full of yellow fruit
but of leaves not a moot
It was a persimmon you see!


Paint the World With Words each Mondy comes up with a Poetic Form of the Week to Challenge her readers.  This week she chose the Limerick!  I reblogged the post, because it is really very interesting and I think you might like to have a look at it, then she asked me if I’d like to try to write a Limerick…so I wrote three.  Amreen has made her weekly Be Inspired Challenge #6…so go have a peek and maybe try your hand at limerick writing!

Limerick: The Nerd

Nerd stuff

There was an old nerd from Lagos

who  played d&d and with legos ™!

He met an old drow

Who threw six 5s in a row

And zapped him right out of his alter-ego!

From Charles! at Legends of Windemere

Limerick: A lady from Kerry

Yesterday at We Drink Because We are Poets, we had an interesting limerick session…I had to go to work, so I thought I’d post this today.

A Lady from Kerry

There once was a lady from Kerry

Who loved going to Cash & Carry

She’d fill up her trolly,

Feeling oh so jolly,

Then abandon it feeling quite merry!
