When Words Go Missing

A Limerick

There once was a writer who wrote
On topics that floated her boat
Spied her empty draft folder
And knew it was over
The words finally caught in her throat.

Author’s note:-
There are some very fine limericks on this platform; take a read and try one of your own.

My gurl, TC Hails gave you more than just one.

And from one of my favourite poets on Medium, Thief

It appears that Michael Burg, MD (AKA Medium Michael Burg) started a limerick war in 2021; not sure if there were winners.




We curate and disseminate outstanding articles from diverse domains and disciplines to create fusion and synergy.
