Don Quixote Limerick

Jousting at Windmills

Don Quixote Limerick

a fellow was off on a quest
followed by his trusty young pest
he felt kind of bored
so he pulled out a sword
then with windmills attempted to wrest

Mad Kane's Limerick-Offs

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?
