Poetry with punch

On Wednesdays, I compose a limerick based on the prompt from Three Word Wednesday. Today's words are: clench, faint, prod  (it's more fun if you read it aloud - try it!):

What, did you think I would faint?
That wasn't a prod, more a feint.
Clench your wee little fist?
Your punch nearly missed!
Now I'll lay you out on the paint.

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!

  1. Poetry about beating up children. Finally verse that resonates with my interests.

    Eerily, that Jeff Posey blurb can be read to the tune of the Facts of Life theme.

  2. I'm guessing the wielder of the clenched fist is not so intimidating. The title is quite fitting.
