A limerick to creativity

With this app I will play

Make new images every day

Make my whiskers go all spikey

Make your love much more likely

Art is fun, is what I say!

Not sure if I’ve got the limerick right, it rhymes the same for the first two lines and the last line, and the third and fourth rhyme too. But I’m not sure it fits the rhythm of a limerick…

Da da dah da dah da da dadada (lines one, two and five)

and – Da da da dah da (lines three and four).

For instance, this is more recognisably a limerick:

There once was a cat had a fishery

It ate all the perch and the chicory,

It hadn’t a clue

What it needed to do

So it went into debt and to bankruptcy?

Although it doesn’t make much sense! But then again limericks don’t have to, they are often nonsense verse. For instance Lewis Carrol whose real name was Charles Dodson. Anyway strange post I guess…

Many moons ago

In a time when photos

were printed on paper,

and swords

were made of cardboard

and silver foil.

Hooped earrings were in fashion,

And bangles jingled.

I wore an eyepatch on my glasses

and pretended to be

Long John Silver,

or Captain Hook,

Red beard

or some other rapskallion…

Oh what fun!

To be young again,

and silly…

Evidence

Got up this morning and found an empty brie packet on the cupboard. It was like a crime scene with the brie kidnapped from the fridge and taken away. Silly I know! It’s just that I buy food for both of us and it’s annoying when it’s just eaten without leaving a bit for me.

I wanted to find something to write on to say ‘evidence’ to leave next to it. But it was five o’clock in the morning and I didn’t have the energy.

When I got up again it was gone, so the opportunity was lost…
