Tom’s Mistake (limerick/Terrible Poetry)



Tom's Mistake


Tom thought the best way to have a great brain
was to consume a great deal of grain
so he drank a large amount of scotch
till walking along some tracks he did botch
managing to get run over by a train

This was written for Chel Owen’s Terrible Poetry Contest #5. This weeks theme was to write a limerick about grain. I’m not actually officially entering this in the contest, mainly because if I manage to win, I then have to pick next weeks theme, which I’m far too lazy to do. Besides, I had a nightmare that I entered the contest and won it and couldn’t come up with a theme (okay as nightmares go this was a rather tame one, but still…).
