Slim Jim


I had fun writing my Pleiades poems in November, so I thought I’d try my hand at playing with Limericks. This style of poetry consists of a single stanza of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines are supposed to rhyme. Also, the third and fourth lines should rhyme with each other. These short poems should have an AABBA structure. The limerick is a folk style of poetry. It can be humorous and, at times, bawdy. I’m not certain if I can achieve witty or bawdy, but hopefully, I can stick with the rhyme pattern. Therefore, I decided to write a Limerick dedicated to a skinny guy who found a way to use his thiness to his advantage. I hope you enjoy Slim Jim.

Slim Jim

Once there was a young hoodlum named Jim

Who was quiet astonishingly Slim

If he turned to the side

He found he could always hide

From the cops who were pursuing him

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.
