Limerick Contest

May 6th is the running of the Limerick Marathon. It may be too far to travel, so instead, this month we're asking for your best marathon limerick

  1. All entries must make at least one marathon related reference. 
  2. All entries must adhere to the traditional limerick format.  A-A-B-B-A rhyme scheme, lines 1,2 and 5 should be seven to ten syllables, while lines 3 and 4 should be five to seven syllables.
  3. Profanity is allowed (but certainly not required), though please keep in mind that the winning entry will be published here, and your mother will see it.

Leave your poem as a comment below. You may enter as often as you like.
