Hi, all! Thanks for dropping by! Folks have left me some limerick prompts. It’s official, my brain is broken. Mackerel and thyme just weren’t happening, but everything else did. If the story is a little tortured, blame those who giggled and left “vinyl” and “chocolate-shaped rabbit.” I did my best for you. (Crawls off mumbling, “What else rhymes with rabbit?” As a poet, I make a really good pharmacist. :S ) Find the first two installments of this story here and here.
All who comment get entered into the drawing for your choice of my upcoming novel, The Rare Event, due March 30th, or anything from my backlist, and a PD Singer keychain flashlight. Feel free to look around.
Prompts used: Chocolate, music, parish, vinyl, Jenga, game, blindfold, feathers, Easter Rising, well, Rising didn’t happen, sorry, chocolate-shaped rabbit, tattoo,
Ned’s gift was a big box of chocolate,
Sized perfect to lie on, thought Rabbit.
When they’re warm they get squooshy,
And all comfy and cushy!
It smells good on my fur when I sit!
Noting that Bun was astir,
Ned checked where the candies were.
He did not see the merit
Of a chocolate-shaped rabbit.
“Wrong day! We need you at Easter!”
Why did Bun’s game have to be “Squish?”
Not Jenga or chess or Go Fish?
The wreck of each gift
Could well cause a rift!
He’s the naughtiest bun in the parish.
“V-day makes a big ballyhoo,
but you know my love’s lasting and true.”
Eric blindfolded Ned,
And returned him to bed,
To reveal a new heart-shaped tattoo.
They finished activities coital,
Wanted dinner and music on vinyl.
Ned put on feathers
And Eric wore leathers
They left Bunny home, and that’s final!
