   There once was a boy named Pete

Who went on a diet of meat.

He missed his Life-Savers

And all their good flavors.

If only the meat had been sweet!

I Love it, to me, Limericks should be all fun and bouncy, you know? So I like it a lot, congrats on making it into the mag! I am a new member, so when some of my work is done pending, will you take a look?

Thank you so everly much for being among the few people on this entire site that realize that poetry can be a fun, enjoyable, entertaining affair rather than a drawn-out, depressing, too-deep-mean-anything teenage pity party. Bless you.

Lol, your welcome.  I think Limerick's are the perfect outing for that, though most of my poetry is what you described, when I write (or fail at writing) a limerick or haiku, it has to be fun and bouncy, it's the style!
