The prompt for this week’s Limerick Poetry Challenge at Mind and Life Matters is ‘Immortal’. This word or an appropriate synonym must appear in the poem. That gave me a slight problem in realising the need to completely rework my second line. My use of the prompt word ‘immortal’ might not quite have fit the bill as it was – not that I’m after the grand prize myself 🙂 So, I managed to include a synonym just in case my ‘immortal’ was lacking and I ended up with an improved version compared to my original draft. 🙂 Yay!
I found this fitting image (below) on pixabay.com – my limerick is below the pic 🙂 Enjoy!
There once wished a happy old couple
endless life but that wish burst their bubble –
He forgot his wife’s T,
left with immoral, she
yelled “to hell with ya and on the double!”

Now that I managed to write one for the challenge prompt myself, I can get around having a read of everyone else’s entries so far… and look forward to the next challenge prompt out on 14th (tomorrow!)
