Pictures for Your Ears

I have, in my own experience considered artists as ones who dealt in pictures. In my latter years, I have added words to my repertoire. I still think primarily in terms of images, but words can evoke images quite well.

Recently, my friend, Bill Skubi put out a Limerick Challenge as a means of lightening the load from our Corona Virus isolation. I woke up this morning about 5:00 AM with verses coursing through my head. Here are the results. I hope you have as much fun with them as I did doing them.

There was a young man with the flu
Who didn’t know what to do.
He drank lots of milk,
And likewise the ilk
Until he began to moo.

There was a young man with the flu
Who didn’t know what to do.
He looked at his face
In the most extraordinary place
In the shine on the top of his shoe.

There was a young man with the flu
Who didn’t know what to do.
He added a toodle
To the whole kaboodle
And had a toodle de do.

There was a young man with the flu
Who didn’t know what to do.
He got on a plane
With nothing to gain
And flew away with the flu.

There was a young man with the flu
Who didn’t know what to do.
He sat on the pot
While deep in thought
And created a terrible pew.
