Wednesday limerick: flesh, novice, sear

Each Wednesday, I compose a limerick based on the prompt from Three Word Wednesday. Today's words are: flesh, novice, sear

  I'm a novice at this, yes it's true,
So "I'm sorry", though tepid, must do
For the horrible sear
To this salmon flesh dear,
But wait 'til my NEXT barbecue! 
~~~~~ * * * ~~~~~

I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!

Oh, wait... the "angry salesman" thing isn't very good book promotion, is it? How about this:

My book of limericks inspired by Three Word Wednesday is FREE to borrow from Amazon:

Poetry on the Fly: Limericks Inspired by Three Word Wednesday

"They made me laugh, they made me sad, they made me think and squirm and reflect. ... Tony Noland has a way with words that is nothing short of astonishing" - Jeff Posey, Amazon review

That's right, FREE. Of course, if you're not in Amazon Prime, it still only costs $0.99. That's less than a coffee. And I'm not talking Starbuck's, I'm talking about the burnt mud they sell at the convenience store. It's worth the buck - you'll love it!

Don't have a Kindle? NO PROBLEM! Get one of the free Kindle apps for PC, Mac, iPhone, Android and a host of other devices. You can read "Poetry on the Fly" (or any of my other great writing) anywhere you like!

  1. You are certainly not a novice at the limerick!

  2. Great lines. You nearly always make me smile and that is a nice way to start the day.

  3. first thing that came to my mind with these words was steaks on the grill. Well done.
