The sublime(y) talk with Limerick King

The sublime(y) talk with Limerick King

The Limerick king Edward Lear
Wrote nonsensical poems without any fear 
He chose characters so weird
And made them look so revered

He proposed a damsel twice
Who thought to marry him won’t be so wise
The heartbreak made him befriend a cat
The spherical short-tailed creature wore a hat

He called on to me to sketch The Pobble With No Toes
I suggested let’s give him some fancy clothes
Baffled he left leaving his unfinished draft
Now I am working to finalize his craft

  1. I love Edward Lear’s simplistic, non-sensical limericks and your Clerihew on him was full of humor, vivid imagery and perfect rhymes.
