Write Me a Limerick, Get 10K

Postby laurel1542 » August 23rd, 2017, 8:45:00 am

You heard that right - all you have to do to get 10,000g is write me a limerick. (one gold transaction per person, but feel free to keep posting poems!)

What's a limerick?

"A humorous, frequently bawdy, verse of three long and two short lines rhyming aabba, popularized by Edward Lear."

Here's an example:

The was a spider on the floor,
It saw me and ran for the door,
I got a cup,
And picked it up,
And its reign of terror was no more.
-Peter Logan (from a Facebook thread about spider poems)

You get 500 extra gold if you make the poem Magistream-related. :woo:

I saw a Crystalwing,
It was at the spring fling,
I asked it for a dance,
It said I had no chance,
It was sort of mean,
But I am still the queen :cool:

I hope this qualifies, as it took me awhile as I had to look up some words and I don't know about you, but people tend to assume teens will do dirty at dances and stuff (like prom) >.<

One line too many, but I'll give you that one ha ha :lol: (Mostly because I would never think to add an emoji to a poem. This is the future.

I once had a Kit,
The problem was that it was worth quite a bit,
I got a trade,
And I accepted it I'm afraid,
And now I have a Kit no more.

I was thinking about my Ice Kitsunes the other day, and how I had sold mine so this was the first thing I thought of :lol: I hope this qualifies?

By the way, this is an AMAZING idea! This was really fun to write, through I'm not very good at it. I'm going to look forward to reading all the others :wee:

It's all about exercising your creativity, regardless of skill level or experience! I also love how the poem had a story behind it. ^_^

Sometimes it all seems like one big scheme,
Its main goal to make me want to scream,
I need an egg
Why do I have to beg?!
I hope you can guess where I am.


Sorry, I had to write this just for the hell of it (I know I don't get any gold for this one, I just had lots of fun the first time so I wanted to write this. I hope you don't mind). The stream was being its usual unhelpful self, being sneaky hiding everything I need XD

This is such a creative idea! I absolutely love it! (and I had just spent all my gold XD so this is perfect timing!)

Every once in awhile I go down to the stream,
Hoping to find a creature to fullfill my dream,
Once I found a Hydra of Wind,
I picked it up, thought that'd be the end,
Now I need them all, it seems.

I hope you enjoyed! I definitely enjoyed writing it!
(Yes, this is the story of how my obsession with Wind Hydras began, haha.)

Thank you very much for this opportunity! :)

Cobras slither through the grass,
They're never where you saw them last,
In the stream, in the Keep, they're everywhere,
You might even find them hiding in someone's hair,
These creatures are quite sneaky and fast.

(Basically, Cobras are cool. This is a neat contest idea :D)
I appreciate any help growing these creatures!

I really don't like cheese
So get me out of here please
I ran out so fast
Whilst passing gas
God how I hate that cheese

Hope this counts
