Tale of the Troglodyte

Posted on

There was once was a long-bearded troglodyte

hidden deep in the caves of Brumbalyte

the story they say…he made salamander souffles

and served them up fancy for socialites

But the ogres were all in a quibble

for they wished they could savor a nibble

the troglodyte paused, and rose to the cause

feeding trolls and foresty fibbles

Now he sings to the beat of his whisk

as the ogres throw him a kiss

and sometimes, they say he jiggles and sways

dancing wildly into the mist

Bjorn has us writing Nonsense Poetry over at dVerse Poets Pub.

  1. I love the fairytale lyricism of this, Mish: I think nonsense poetry lends itself well to metre and rhyme!

  2. There is nothing better than being able to serve up a Salamander souffle…

  3. But this is lovely<¨! Fun, definitely, and clever too, but I REALLY like it on its own merits, great rhythm, wonderful rhyme—

  4. A limerickial trifecta!

  5. As the other comments have already applauded, wonderfully lyrically.

    Tis a wicked gob of limericks, too much fun. It puts me in mind of Trump and his cabinet of asslickers.

  7. Love the whimsical limerick nature of this tale Mish. Made me smile. Excellent work!

  8. Love the ‘souffles’ and “quibbles.” Lovely imaginary tale.
