A few for the Critics

As the suitability of limericks as a vehicle for serious topics continues to be debated by the Spokesman Review, here, here, and here, vs. being solely conscripted by bawdy humor or raw wit, it only seems fair to add a few more thoughts - for fun.

Now some will call limericks a waste,
And others find them lacking in taste,
But 'til this sort of rhyme,
Is a capital crime,
I am happy to write lower caste!

It seems Puns are a challenging lot,
As all of them require some thought,
But the key to a pun,
And to keeping it fun,
Is to strike while the irony's hot!
