It’s the Diapers and Divinity Spring Poetry Contest. (Roaring applause heard from all six readers even though they’re really jealous because they wish this crown could be theirs.)
I loved all your poems. Thanks to everyone who was adventurous enough to participate. 🙂
Vote for your favorite limerick about laundry. Here are the finalists:
There once was a girl in a quandary,
For she had at least ten loads of laundry
To do in a day
But there just was no way
To finish without magic wand-ery
The piles are climbing the walls
The shirts, the pants and the overalls.
Oh, when will it end?
I think I need a friend-
Oh, help me it’s spilled to the halls.
It’s a blessing to do everyday,
To serve my family this way.
I have to repeat it
Until I believe it,
For laundry will not go away.
I’m the luckiest girl in creation,
there are no bounds to my giddy elation!
My husband once volunteered,
now it’s been seven years:
I’m on permanent laundry vacation!

The official ballot:
I’ll announce the winner next Wednesday. (I know, it kind of puts the Oscars and Emmys and stuff to shame, but we’ll try not to rub it in.)

Sigh. I totally meant to write a limmerick for this. It was going to be just naughty enough to be a good limmerick, and funny enough so that I could have a chance at the big jeweled crown.
Alas, not only am I nine weeks pregnant and having my brain sucked out daily by a baby the size of a raspberry, but I’m buried in a mess of laundry. How very fitting.
I’m so seriously impressed with the cleverness. And totally jealous of the wife who’s husband does the laundry. Sounds great to me!
However, your links aren’t working for the two with blogs…. 😦
I think it’s fixed now Amanda!
Do you think MaryAnne would mind if I put this limerick up in my laundry room? I would give her credit! 🙂
Blog hiatus has not been a bliss
Your blog I have very much missed
I won’t pop your bubble
Laundry’s nothing but trouble
Like a slap when you wanted a kiss!
(Hershey’s, that is — check out my blog and see what I found! It’s heaven!)
I totally want to put MaryAnn’s limerick up in my laundry room too.
You can definitely put it up in your laundry room, but I think the credit has to go to my 2 year old, who insisted on listening to “Follow the Prophet” on repeat. After about the third time through, my brain was ready to start thinking about something else, so I came up with this limerick.
