50 Shades of Grey: the limerick edition

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

Please be SURE that it's really just play
(not abuse) and you both feel OK;
Set a safeword and wrangle
the rules for your tangle.
Is one spank just one shade of grey?

OW, that hurt! But it felt good! And my inner goddess is singing!

Oh, wait... while the "BDSM with bad writing" thing is EXCELLENT book promotion for "50 Shades of Grey", it's not going to do much for a slim volume of my limericks, 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!

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. Love your limerick of that book. I tried to read it to see what all the hype was, but it was just so poorly written, that I couldn't waste my time. I read enough, though, to make me chuckle at your poem.

    Heading to Amazon right now for your book! Thanks!

  2. Just one spank might put me in a black mood rather than grey. However your limericks do have an appeal (no, not weal!)

  3. ...and my inner goddess is laughing!

  4. Oh so risque! I did read it aloud, and I smiled wide....fun, playful rhyme!

  5. LOL...I love it!

  6. Thank you! I no longer need to buy the book now, of course.
