A Poet Called Paul

Obviously not me...or is it?

There once was a poet called Paul

He was greying, fat and kinda tall

People would point and stare

Call him names without a care

Until one day he killed them all


Thank you for reading! Another limerick. Yes, it's becoming a thing. It's taking over haiku for me. Anyway, I really hope you've enjoyed the ride so far. This post marks number 99. That means something's coming. It may take a little while longer for me to publish anything new because I have something I am working on that has been put off for too long.

So, keep your eyes peeled. While I'm working on piece 100, I'll be able to read up on stuff I've not been able to in recent weeks.

If you enjoyed my third take on a limerick, please let me know. Click the heart, drop a comment, and you know all the usual stuff.

Here are some other pieces you could enjoy:

    Have me Lol 😂 here! Nice one, Paul 💕🙂

  • I appreciate the creativity and humor in Paul's poem! The rhyming scheme and rhythm flow nicely and make the poem enjoyable to read. I also appreciate how the poem takes a lighthearted approach to addressing the hurtful actions of others. Overall, Paul has done a great job in expressing his thoughts and feelings through poetry.
