Magpie Tales #89 or SPLAT!


There once was a writer Olivetti
Who obviously loved his spagetti
He spilled his sauce
Which made him quite cross
And now his prose is confetti

A limerick! I'd give my kingdom for a limerick!

Bravo! I was trying to dredge up a brand-name for the electric typewriter for my piece, and my mind went blank, except for Selectric, which made me think: Is that just one that sounds like a real brand, or did my memory serve me right?

Yours was beyond clever.

One thing I liked about typing on paper, the relief of tearing it up and starting again. Hard to do with the computer.

I just wrote a poem nonsensically titled because I couldn't figure out what to call it. I called that poem "Spaghetti Sauce With Wine". Now your limerick speaks of spaghetti and sauce. Spooky.
