At some point in the last month, John Moynes passed the milestone of 1,500 Limericks A Day.
One thousand five hundred Limericks.
Written and posted on the same number of days.
Many will recall the callow, clean-shaven poet who, in 2011, began spreading the news through anapestic meter.
Few knew he would emerge – by sheer dint of number of ‘ricks posted – as the most published poet on the planet.
A revered, wise elder daily bearding the likes of Trump armed with little more than five-lines in a world where nothing rhymes with orange.
We are working on some artwork to celebrate John’s achievement, but will need a little verse.
If you would like to share your appreciation to the Bard of Broadsheet you are very welcome to help complete the Limerick below:
‘A prolific poet called Moynes,
Picked up his pen and girded his loins,
Verse must cease at 5.45pm.
