Blog Hop Limericks; the story continues

PD Singer blog hop Valentines Day

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!

The winner will be announced tomorrow, so leave a comment, and follow the blog here to get an extra entry into the drawing. Our blog hop ends at midnight, but if there’s a comment when I get up in the morning to announce a winner, I’m not checking time stamps.

Lots of authors are participating; find them here. Thanks for coming by, and welcome back any time!

Blog Hop Limericks, first set

PD Singer blog hop Valentines Day

Hi, all! Thanks for dropping by! Folks have left me some limerick prompts in passing, and I’ve succeeded in using most of them in this little sequence. If you don’t see yours, fear not, the second set will be along shortly.

All who comment (including leaving me a prompt) 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.

Heh, Eric and Ned from yesterday’s limerick (featuring the word orange) are back for more. Prompt words used: Wine, Rose, Candy, Scarlet, charming, wrought, radish, duvet, candle light, cat, roses, rabbit, bunny, back

Eric gave his beloved a rose.
Staple, as a Valentine goes.
But Ned’s rotten pet rabbit
Has indulged his bad habit
And nibbled the flower where it shows!

Ned scolded the lupine varlet
Who’d eaten the petals so scarlet.
Turned the munch to the back
Hid the bunny attack —
“The damage won’t show if it’s starlit!”

To distract from the naughty lupine
Ned poured Eric a big glass of wine
And plied him with candy
(And then got all randy)
Of Bun’s thieving he gave not a sign.

Eric said, “Let’s have candle light!”
Revealing the terrible sight.
A well behaved cat
Would not have done that.
Eric saw where Bun had a bite!

A boyfriend will find it alarming
If his gift is allowed to take harming.
Needs apology wrought
Most sincerely, Ned thought,
And delivered in a manner most charming.

“I’m so sorry that Bun ate your posy,
Instead of his radish so rosy.”
“Think nothing of it,
And come under the duvet.”
(They proceeded to get very cozy!)

Blog Hop prompt words needed

Revving up for the big Valentine’s Day Blog Hop, I’m thinking a few fresh-for-the-occasion limericks will be a nice present for those who stop by. So if you like your doggerel shaggy, or just like to play “stump the author,” leave me a prompt word or two in the comments here, and I shall whip them into five-line goodness. Or badness.  Or smutness. I have last year’s limericks lying around here somewhere.

Just a little added incentive to swing past any time from February 11th through the 14th, and be entered for in the drawing for a copy of my new novel, The Rare Event (if you’re good with delayed gratification, it’s due March 30th), something from my backlist if you want it now, and a PD Singer key chain flashlight (for reading under the bedclothes.)

And for an extra entry into the drawing, follow the blog for news and opinions. All followers, new and existing, get that second entry.
