Are you a closet limerick writer? Then the Charlotte Observer has a contest for you. Starting today until March 17, you can send your political or public policy related limerick to either firstname.lastname@example.org or to Mary Newsom, Charlotte Observer, PO Box 30308 Charlotte, NC 28230-0308. Weekly winners are posted online on Friday and a Grand Prize Winner is announced in March. Not leaning towards limerick writing myself, I understand it can be addictive. Here is an entry from last year written by Joel Zauss:
It's limerick time-nothing sweeter.
But at Exon or in Harris Teeter
Or at work or at home
Or wherever I roam
All the thoughts that I think are in meter.
If you win or are chosen as an honorable mention one week, please let me know. I'd love to post some winning limericks on this blog!
