Crush on Teacher
Schooled on Limericks! writing prompt entry
It's that time of year... back to school! So, to help cheer up those of us who might need that extra smile to happily get back into the routine, your challenge is to write a limerick poem [it can be up to THREE stanzas = three limericks] about school. It can be about a personal experience, it can be about a favorite (or feared!) teacher, it can be about the school cafeteria (or the food therein!), it can be generalized, it can be very, very specific - ideas are as limitless as your imagination.... but your goal is to make us laugh! Only one stipulation: keep it clean, people!! :-)
Remember a limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables while rhyming and having the same verbal rhythm. The third and fourth lines only have to have five to seven syllables, and have to rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm. An example is given below (from the famous Edward Lear!)
There was an Old Man with a beard
Who said, 'It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!'
"ubermensch" (often translated as "Superman") is Nietsche's concept of the ideal man who fills the nihilistic void by generating his own moral code (or maybe not, like I said, I flunked that class)Pays one point and 2 member cents.
