Limerick and Haiku--Dating



This is in response to Mad Kane's Limerick Challenge
The Topic is Dating.

Limerick

He thought her a bit over-rated
She firmly pronounced him out-dated
Yet, odd to discover,
They married each other
And they blissfully live—syncopated

Haiku

Fussing with my hair…
How do I know what he likes?
Fluffy, Styled, Straight? Wild?

Your limerick is perfect, excellent! I enjoyed your haiku too.

They are very clever and the emotions associated are too familiar. It makes me so glad I no longer must worry about dating!

I especially enjoyed the limerick with it's musical staff to set the scene.

I liked the haiku, too, with its too familiar dilemma.

Very very clever. It is true that opposites sometimes attract and make beautiful music but other times it is nothing more than out of tune whistling.
