POETRY FROM THE MOTHERLAND

POETRY FROM THE MOTHERLAND
Limericks with Terry Harrigan – for Art & Movement Symposium, Tacoma, WA
There once was a group from Tacoma (9)
That dreamed of a poetry diploma    (10)
Their efforts were heroic   (7)
You could see they were stoic (7)
Who knew? They all were from Roma! (8)
