Pills for All Ills

Pills for All Ills

I feel like a walking prescription
Taking drugs of every description.
I take so many tablets I rattle
While fighting a continuous battle
To unsubscribe this prescribed addiction.

Body Surgery

A daft woman ran a campaign
To have her body removed from her brain, 
Her surgeon complied,
She not surprisingly died –
But she’s not in the position t’complain. 

Anna :o]

Madeleine Begun Kane who blogs superbly at Mad Kane's Humor Blog  is todays inspiration at dVerse~Poets Pub  – the form is of course limericks.  My two offerings are not new – but what the heck – I thought I would post them anyway!

Ha! Good ones Anna.

I think that first poem is about Rush Limbaugh, right? There's lots of it going around, I guess. My favorite is the seond though, and I think I saw her running the local Tea Party chapter!

And we enjoyed them, Anna. Thanks so for linking today. Stop back by the pub any time. There's poetry pretty much 24/7 here. You'll meet old friends and make new ones. Limericks, free verse, villanelles all welcome!

These two limericks show so much wit,
I could swear you were more than half Brit;
And a Doc in real life -
For your verses are rife
With such references pharmaceut.

Madeleine Begun Kane said...

Thanks so much for your kind words about my blog and for your fun verse!

Martin said...

Ha--well, I have a penchant for the second. I've somehow managed to keep going after this surgery however.

Modern medicine is such a game
If given pills, who’s to blame?
If someone’s got a flu
The doctor he will sue
But if he OD’s on pills it’s a shame

I love a good limerick. These are great!

PattiKen said...

Clever writing, Anna. You clearly have a talent for this. Limerick as social commentary. That could be a new Op/Ed feature in the newspaper.

Thanks for visiting my limerick offering!

Laurie Kolp said...

Enjoyed them both, Anna!

I don't like pills but the colours are great.

Greetings,
