A Word With Laurie

Over at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, Laurie Kolp asks for 5-minutes worth of "Ecstasy" 

Be Warned

There was a young raver called Peck
who sampled ocassional ec-
stasy tablets,
which soon became habit
and now he's a quivering wreck.



  1. This is a fun quickie, with an underlying message that needs to be addressed.

  2. I love your take on the prompt, quick , direct and true. It has the limerick style that is so fun to read and reminds me of 5th grade.

    Happy holidays to you n yours
    Thanks for visiting me

  3. Thanks Ella and Kerry. It's a 5th Grade limerick alright!

  4. No it isn t it is a 5min prompt ; )
    The short rhyme reminded of the clever
    Fun of this kind of poem

  5. I like your poem's uniqueness. Clever twist.

  6. I was wondering who might use ecstasy as the drug. Some may have not heard of "X"... isn't that what they call it? Anyway, a quivering wreck sums it up perfectly! Thanks for taking part.

  7. You've set me thinking, Doctor...

    There was a young raver called Peck
    who said to himself "What the heck!
    Those 'ecstasy' pills
    just made me feel ill,
    now my pecker is down and not up!"


Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
