and she's running another limerick contest, this time for mother's day!so here’s my challenge: write a limerick related to the subject of mothers and post it here in a comment to this post no later than saturday, may 12, 2007. i’ll announce the winners on mother’s day, may 13, 2007.
the first prize will be $25. the second prize will be $10. both prizes will be paid via paypal.
so, what exactly is a limerick? it’s a five line poem with an aabba rhyme scheme and a very specific meter exemplified by these winning entries. (for more information about limericks check out these fine sites: encyclospeedia oedilfica and oedilf.)
HMMM? My entry:
Ode to Martha
There was a blue Mom in Connecticut
Who preached about homemaking etiquette
She spent time in jail
For a fraudulent sale
Or was it her “liberal” epithet?
I think that what Martha Stewart did was wrong BUT, given the fact that many Republic party scoundrels have received a much different treatment by the Republic controlled DoJ, this may have been as much a political witch hunt as it was justice served.
The message was touted as "Don't do insider trading"... But there was a secondary message of "ESPECIALLY if you are a liberal!"
Given what we know about the politicization of the DoJ under Alberto "GONEzo" Gozales, and previously under Ashcroft as well, this may be more apparent now.
