    Write a Limerick about the LitNet

    Tomorrow, May 12, is National Limerick Day.

    I thought it might be fun if folks could post a Limerick
    about the LitNet (or about one of our illustrious Lit"Nut"ters!

    You, first --

    There is a quaint place called Lit Net...
    The rules are specifically set...
    To talk and discuss,
    Sometimes even fuss,
    A time you will never regret!

    Remember this, my friends: there are no such things as bad plants or bad men. There are only bad cultivators.

    There once was a Net full of Lit
    Where people would come just to sit;
    A false-footed trochee
    Might make things go rocky,
    But most of us get over it...
    se non e vero, e molto ben'trovato

    About that writer named Rowling
    The elitists opine while scowling:
    "She is a twit,
    Her books are ----."
    It gets the populists growling

    *

    The elitists respect the voice
    Of populists and right of choice
    But put this in a thread
    And you may wind up dead:
    "Stephen King is as good as Joyce."
    There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
    Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

    Would you like to place a bet,
    That one day soon on Lit Net,
    The furor caused by Harry Potter,
    Will make some guys even hotter.

    Unjustly termed as the "elite",
    They are not about to turn effete,
    While striving for their daily bread,
    They won't give up their precious thread.

    Who are these men?
    What are their prospects?
    Lets round up the usual suspects.
