Round 12 ended in a tie. Thank you to everyone who voted!
I got off track yesterday. I was fighting a cold and ended up finishing watching the last season of True Blood. Well, that was depressing. 
We're back to the battle with two cheeky ones, a snarky Senryu and a limerick for the fine fellow who wrote the love theme for my life, the one and only J. Geils. May he rock in peace.

Poem #25
Thanksgiving: A Snarky Senryu

time for Thanksgiving
happy holiday for some
not much for turkeys


Poem #26
A Limerick for John

J. Geils went through diamonds and minks
He had the blues, the reds, and the pinks
He revealed the truest truth
I knew it back in my youth
The only thing for sure is love stinks


  1. Today I am voting for your Limerick For John, despite the truth of the first.

    1. Thank you. I hope that he enjoyed the positive energy of it from his current vantage point in the realm of spirit.

    1. Thank you. To be honest, I like the sides better than the meat. I've never been able to entirely go vegetarian, but I could do a vegetarian Thanksgiving and not miss the turkey.
