Perfectly bad limericks

In which an old blogger called Geek…

Vintage style typewriter for writing

One of my largest challenges with writing poetry is trying to make them sound good. My natural style is to just write and not review or edit. This means that normally my prose is not perfect and contravenes grammatical norms.

However this is because I live in a world where I beleive it better to have something rather than nothing. Nobody published the greatest novel by not writing a word, if you keep editing  away at something until it is perfect but never release it to the wild it is no better than any random piece of nonsense.

Nature is not perfect, so neither should anything creative be. Some of the most valuable stamps in the world are those that have errors on, so a piece of work that is flawed also has value.


They say writing poems is art,

But when I try to I fall apart,

The problem is when

I start to type and then

I have no idea where to start.


We are all looking for perfect prose,

Yet what it looks like nobody knows

Is it an error

When the couplets don’t pairer

Or a limerick has too many rows,

Who knows?

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.
