Today's words are breeze, mellow, tickle.
Earthquake, tsunami and meltdown,
Poison breeze, feel the cesium pelt down,
Has death's burning sickle
Stilled mellow laugh's tickle,
Fukushima forever a felled town?
This week's limerick isn't at all humorous. I've often wondered if the limerick form, which is traditionally associated with snappy one-liners - funny, ribald or both - can be put to a more serious use. Can the limerick express serious emotion, or is the reader so conditioned to expect something funny that they can't help but wait for the punchline?
