Limerick Challenge Week 36: Fairytale

Limerick Challenge Week 35: Fairytale


The prompt this week is ‘Fairytale’. Who does not love a good fairytale, right? So here’s the thing, this week, base your limerick on a fairytale. You can choose any fairytale that already exists or one that you wrote yourself!

Jack and Jill climbed a hill.

Trying hard not to spill.

Jill pushed Jack

Down on his back

And Jack went after Jill.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    I like the ending of Jack going after Jill after she pushed him on his back. Nice twist on the original.
