Limericks

November 1, AS XXXIII (1998)

There once was a youth brave and silly
who befriended a Cynaguan Lily
     he came to the Mists
     to fight in the lists
and now says to all "That's Prince Billy!"

The words were lists, prince and youth

I won the second with this rhyme:

One Teufelberg Tournament day
The local knight came out to play
     he said with aploumb
     "I wish Gad would come,
for his daughters just won't stay away!"


Written at the Teufelberg Tournament:

"The only reason I wanted to go to this event, was that it was the first time a friend of mine would fight in a tournament of any size, even though it only had three fighters. Various contests were held including two limerick contests. One had a pot to choose words from, and the other: a line to start from. I didn't win this one, but I still like my "choose words"." -- Margrethe Astrid Ravn
