Story Summary

When I asked my friend Toby to Beta my Denethor villanelle, he told me "I would have Denethor writing poetry that begins - There was an old man from Belfalas..."
It was tooo easy, so I wrote the limerick, and sent it on to him with the first line for a new one. We have been playing back and forth since.
These are silly, smutty and irreverent - they are limericks after all! And putting them in the "poetry" genre made me laugh as hard as the limericks themselves.
Toby does not want play anymore - anyone else want to play??
