Way back in 2000, I had a blog through AOL journals. I can’t remember what year it was when AOL shut it down. People were upset because they really worked hard on their journals and made alot of friends. I blogged about the same things I do now and really enjoyed learning about the interesting people I met there. Someone had a blog called “Poetry Dance” and I used to write poems for their weekly challenges. I like to have fun and come up with a nice poem or short story. I have a freelance writing degree and I took the course in case I ever wanted to pursue it further. I’m still in the same place and still just enjoy it. I really love to learn about people so I read and watch a lot of videos about issues and overcoming them. Or just finding ways to live peacefully. Anyway, I decided to look at some things I wrote tonight and I forgot about the Halloween limericks I wrote. I also wrote a children’s Halloween story and I’ll have to read it to see if I’m brave enough to share lol. So here are the limericks I wrote. The last one is my fav. They are from 2006. And in case you’re like, “what in the world is a limerick?” It’s a poem that’s often humorous with five lines. The first, second and fifth line rhyme, and the third and fourth lines are shorter and also rhyme.
Haunted House Limerick
As I entered the eerie looking haunted house
The floor squeaked like a mouse.
The door suddenly slammed behind me
And now I really have to pee.
Where is the bathroom in this house?
There was a spidery spider
Swimming around in my cider.
His future looked grim
As he neared the rim.
Now my lip hurts from that biter!
There was a witch on her broom
Who was flying past the moon.
Then a bat went SPLAT!
Against the witches hat
When there was plenty of room.
