I’ve had a bloody good time writing limericks since publishing Limerick #1 on November 27, 2013. So, in honor of this first anniversary, here is Limerick #136:
How to cure erythrophobia and hematophobia with one swift intervention (a variation on: How to kill two birds with one stone). A double limerick…
The bullet went straight through Brown’s head.
And that meant, of course, that it bled.
Brown typically feared bloody red,
And this would have filled him with dread
Except for the fact
That when his skull cracked
He suddenly lacked
A way to react,
’Cause most of his brain mass had fled…
It’s hard to fear red when you’re dead!
