I often use my Mad Kane limerick on Open Link Monday at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads because I seldom, if ever, write poetry except in response to a prompt these days. Hmm, it's hard to believe I used to write poetry in response to everything and everyone I saw, heard, or imagined, when I was young.
This week's opening line for Mad Kane's Limerick-Off is "a woman would frequently pose" which, of course, led to all kinds of men as well as more than a few women having entirely too much fun.
Madeleine always offers an alternative ("a fellow would frequently pose") but also says everything in the first line can be changed except the last word. Thanks, Madeleine!
