Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?

So how in the world would I know.'

This is indeed a great tribute to that greater limerick writer- Edward Lear. Having said that, Jim Yerman also deserves a big hand for this greatly amusing string of limericks to mark the occasion. Thanks a lot.
I did not know that May 12 was limerick day! That's my sister's birthday! Maybe I will be able to remember both next year! By the way, the Limerick King on this site is Wes Vogler. If you've never read any of his limericks, you should.
Now I know another birthday to celebrate! Enjoyed it all the way. Thanks for sharing.
now I will religiously observe limerick day thanks for enlightening me
Good poem really funny and you followed the Edward Lear Limerick form all the way through..i'll have to remember that Limerick Day falls on my brother's birthday, too..
