Wednesday poetry: fog, lenient, struggle

Each Wednesday, I compose a limerick based on the prompt from Three Word Wednesday. Today's words are: fog, lenient, struggle  (it's more fun if you read it aloud - try it!):

'mid the fog of my overbooked life
 this struggle for Art brings me strife;
t'would be more convenient
if my muse were lenient,
I march to my taskmaster's fife.
    ~~~~~ * * * ~~~~~

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Oh, wait... the "romantic scoundrel" 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. Aw, no beat of your own drum? I mean, I guess the taskmaster could always be...

    your wife.

  2. Our muses can certainly be hard task-masters!

  3. I love limericks and wish I could write them. I just don't have the knack, but you clearly do *smile* As to my muse, I'd rather have him hanging over my shoulder than going on one of his periodic benders in the bottom of a whisky jar when he is incapable of aiding me!
