Stand ~ Acrostics Only (a Limerick)


Sitting still is not food for my soul

Talking weird turns my blood boiling droll

Always funny and gay

Never dry or decayed

Drinking wine 'til can't stand dug my hole

ha ha ha...i am so embarrassed Jim about my comment in your acrostic...i did not realize that STAND is a limerick acrostic...i overlooked it, so you are in for a contest...:-)

thanks for sharing the rules and if i my memory serves me right, i won in a limerick acrostic last year and the prompt was PARIS...:-)

i should try to write one about STAND...and see if i have not forgotten the fun of writing one...:-)
