A lady who came from New York,
Was armed with a pen and a fork.
She got paid to eat,
So it was a feat,
To tighten her belt in New York.

There once was a man from Des Moines
Who spent all his time writing poems.
He scoured the Midwest,
For every contest,
Yet never found fame in Des Moines.

A guy who lived in Topeka,
Was heard exclaiming, “Eureka!”
He discovered his muse,
Got rid of the blues,
And published a book in Topeka

One stay-at-home mom in Santa Fe,
Recorded the details of her day.
She started a blog,
“Two Babies and a Dog”,
And wowed the mothers of Santa Fe.

A girl bought a house in Boise,
Whose neighbors declared her noisy.
She played a piano,
And sang in soprano,
Composing lyrics in Boise.

A man who went to Honolulu,
Got a free trip to write a review.
After several days,
Of luau and lei,
He longed to move to Honolulu.

Entertaining and fun poem. I especially like the variety using six different Writers. Liked how it flowed too!

I thought this was funny. I love making limericks myself.

My only quibble is that Des Moines (pronounced by us Iowans as De Moyn) doesn't really rhyme with "poems".

Great job. :)

Clever, quirky and fun limmerick!
