Hard Candy: Limericks


      “How Has Florida Affected Your Writing?”

      They congratulate marvelous Mona
      For becoming tonight’s Miss Daytona,
           But in such a cheap town
           Instead of a crown
      They award her one lukewarm Corona.


      Stool Pidgin

      A fellow with multiple theses
      Detailing the ordures of species
           Would quip, to acquit
           His lifetime of shit,
      “It’s nice to put names with their feces!”

      Young ladies parading in slips sees
           In the freckles they show
           And the kisses they blow
      A tableau of suggestive ellipses . . .
