Wednesday #limerick: hinge, lethal, need

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

  Does clean writing hinge on clean living?
Then my mental dinge needs forgiving.
With a mind full of muck,
I'll need a dump truck.
So lethal, wants more than mere sieving.

    ~~~~~ * * * ~~~~~

I think we can all look back on all those times we tortured helpless animals and set innocent people on fire, can't we? Those are the universal experiences of adolescence that we all share, aren't they?

Um... aren't they?

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

"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.

  3. Thanks, everyone! I hope you all downloaded the of limericks - if you liked this, you'll love that.


  4. Nice Limerick, I like humor in the lines. :-)

  5. "Does clean writing hinge on clean living?" I sincerely hope not.

  6. Limericks are often poorly metered or nonsensical. You have a real message here, and it's still funny, in keeping with tradition, and you made me laugh out loud, so thanks. "Sieving," a great word! Peace, Amy
