"The reason for your unreasonable treatment of my reason so enfeebles my reason that I have reason to complain of your reason" ~ Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra


There once was a man from the east coast,

Who had made quite a terrible host,

They said he was mean,

And awfully unclean,

And for that he will certainly roast

This was my first limerick. It struck me as I was looking at a disagreeable writing prompt at school

Courage isn't the absense of fear, it's the ability to do what you have to do in spite of it

It bothers me that there isn't a period on the end, after "roast". Please put one for those of us who are grammar ocd, haha. I would be curious to see this man in another setting---like a short or long story. You could even make a series of poems about his humorous and horrible hosting habits. ;)

Limericks are irresistible in their catchiness, and this was no exception. I applaud you for writing it.

However, I'm disappointed that you didn't work 'toast' into it.
