Microfiction Monday #29 A morality tale, cheerleading and horse sense



My son let me tell you of Ned
A young buck who would not be led
He wandered away
from his herd one fine day
And ended up losing his head
(140) - by Pat

Lean to the left!
Lean to the right!
Stand up! Sit down!
Fight, fight, fight!!
Why am I the only Mustang with school spirit here?
(139) - by Pat

Well, I was told that if I wore this Mustang T-shirt,
people would think I was a horse
and since people do not shoot horses,
I'd be safe.
(138) - by Jerry

You are both entirely too clever!!! How fun! All three are terrific! Hope you've had a great weekend, it's miserable here, cold, snowy, windy! Yuk!! Ah, well, I love it most of the time! Enjoy your week!

Pat, all three are brilliant! I am in awe of your productivity!

I echo Sylvia: it's foul weather up in the Pacific NW. Hope the sun is shining in Garden Valley and that you and Jerry have a nice Thanksgiving.

All 3 are great again this week!

Good ones, Pat. I love the second one, even though you didn't make up most of it. LOL
Jerry -- there was a movie, but maybe I'm older than you are, called "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" but the they, in that case, wasn't hunters, just the great unidentified "they" we hear about all the time.

Oooo I love all three of those. I don't think I have a favorite with them. Nicely done.

Pat,
I love all three but my fav is the cheer! Lean to the left, lean to the right...LOL!

Pat said...

Daisy: That was a cheer when I was in high school in 1962-66. I doubt that any cheerleaders use it any more!

Susan Fobes said...

Oh I enjoyed your limerick immensely!

I liked the first one best, it's a perfect limerick.

Jim said...

They are good ones, P&J! This is the first time I've seen a writing by Jerry.
My pick is the last two.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, your weather sounds worse than mine by a long shot, Pat!! We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow, but I suspect it will just be more flurries and no accumulation! Take care! Stay warm! Holding good thoughts for you!

All 3 are good, but I favor the last. Well done.

kaykuala said...

Pat, 3 good ones. The second has elements of a challenge and wanting to win. My vote for the 2nd. Great!

anthonynorth said...

Enjoyable takes, all :-)

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

All three are wonderful! Love the first...I'm a sucker for a clever limerick.

izzy said...

Yah, gotta have rhythm!

SouthLakesMom said...

You're #1! You're #1!

Seriously, your #1 is number #1 in my book! Well done!

Although . . . my word verification is cattle - - is blogger trying to tell me something about going along with the herd?

MorningAJ said...

Love the Limerick! In fact they're all pretty good.

Dianne said...

well done!!
each one has a different feel and style :)

Madeleine said...

Excellent Micros. I'm afraid I did not feel at all inspired by the picture this week. :O)

SparkleFarkle said...

What a fun limerick! (Not so fun for poor Neddy, though, eh? Thank God it's not Rudolph! Come Christmas, if it's as foggy as it is here, this morning, Santa's gonna need all of him!

Happy Thanksgiving Pat to you and yours ~ Lib ~ xx

dkzody said...

Yay for cheerleaders...sometimes they need to be put in their place!

Hello Pat,

All three verses were fantastic, but the third one in particular made me chuckle.

sylviamorice said...

Funny ones this week! I like them all, but the first and third are my favs...
Cheers!

Diane said...

All are excellent and I cannot pick a favorite. Great trio! :O)

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

All three were fun Pat, I think the first one was my favorite. Limericks again. You and Jerry outdid yourselves. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving

septembermom said...

They are all great! Love how you did three :) The second one is my favorite. That's a cheerleader deer!

the replicant said...

I love a good limerick. Well done!

jabblog said...

Wonderful, all three of them:-) Each one raised a smile, but I liked the idea of a buck parading as a mustang.
