To paint the church's door,
He thinned the paint, a chore,
And when it bled,
A deep voice said,
"Repaint and thin no more."

The baker was quite a believer
That he could become an achiever.
He atarted to putter
And made a new cutter.
He called it a four-loaf-cleaver.

At a flea circus once long age
The crowds were beginning to grow.
The excitement was high
Till a dog wandered by.
It's been said that the dog stole the show.

A cat by the name of Macbeth
Captured rodents and put them to death.
His trick for the seizure?
He ate cheese at leisure
And waited with baited breath.

You know I think that Penelope may be on to something about you start a themed limerick thread ? That would be fun. The Lit.Org hasn't had a running thread in quite a while and it would be quite a fun writing exercise. You start it..sense you are the reigning queen of limericks!

Thanks for posting again...I like the last one the best! Heehee!

Hey, Lena,
I like the sound of a themed limerick thread, but since I am new to Lit.Org, please tell me how it works and how to get it started.

SallyY How To Start A Thread Question:
Well, I've never started one, but I have participated in quite a few. First you come up with a theme, and then you create the first poem/limerick/whatever, give the thread a title, making sure you make it clear that it is an ongoing thread in the title, and then you submit it under the category of "The Thread". I think that's how it goes.

Would all of you who have commented on my limericks please tell me - if I should happen to get them published in a book, would you buy it? Do you think anyone would be interested in buying it?
