Car-free American Limericks
Every now and then I will, on the Car-free American Facebook page start a limerick in hopes someone more talented and courageous than I will finish it (or at least create a new line so someone else can finish).
I applaud all who try,
boo to those
who make no effort.
Last week I started one,
"There was once a old rusty bicycle by the sea..."
Paul Lieberman wrote
"There was an old rusty bike by the sea
Which seemed like a big waste to me
If the owner had a brain
He'd put some lube on the chain
"there once was a rusty bicycle by the sea,
that was owned by that careless McGee.
Oil he would not use,
to clean the bike he would refuse.
It was a waste of a good bike if you ask me
Amy Pennington wrote a line: "That was swarmed by a hive of bees"
so I will try to finish...
"There once was a old rusty bicycle by the sea.
That was swarmed by a hive full of bees,
but the bike being old,
and now not so bold,
decided to stay put and not flee!"
And back on September 29th I wrote:
"There was once a bicycle named Sue..."
Shane Harders wrote this:
"There was once a bicycle named Sue,
... she knew just what to do,
she took her rider fro and to,
where others would sit in traffic and stew,
Sue and her rider knew the right thing to do!
Save the planet and money,
...for fitness and fun,
Sue and her rider,
are a smart son-of-a-gun!"
