Now it’s time for our annual chore: I this year a lim’rick implore And so, ‘bout your marriage Write a verse to disparage The sexlessness that you deplore.
The loneliness, pain, and remorse Leads many to seek to outsource. And no marital bliss (I’m afraid to admit) Leads many to plans of divorce.
Write of the pain that your honey Is making you split all your money Just make sure you rhyme In five simple lines Your verse can be sullen or funny.
And to our dear friend surfergirl Though your entry last year was a pearl, That misshapen “haiku” Does not qualify you So again you must give it a whirl!
In what has become a pre-Valentine's day tradition here, you are invited this year to give us a Limerick that captures your mood regarding your sexless marriage.
This is in fact a contest: you enter by posting in this thread; you vote by "likes"; you are allowed as many entries as you'd like; you may vote as many times as you'd like. The winner is the one with the most likes by the closing date: Valentines Day. Once again, Admin will bestow the honorific title of "ILIASM Poet Laureate" to the winner for a year. (This past year's title was held by choosinghappy.)
If you'd like to peruse previous poetry threads, see:
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
