Reclining Monarch Limerick


Midas Reclining on Throne

Reclining Monarch Limerick

A king who was frequently prone
Had a very uncomfortable throne
He was caught lying down
Then he lost his gold crown
Now his short rein is quite unknown.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
