Can it be? 2019 already?? I have no clue how we got to this point without a single bit of poetic verse on this blog. That has to change. Today.
Introducing Frugal Limericks! Yes indeed. I’m going to unleash upon you fine, unsuspecting readers a series of taut and flowery verse that’ll leave you mystified and mildly entertained.
The fun part? You can return the favor in the comments! That’s right. I encourage YOU to reveal your talent and produce one or two limericks of your very own below. I have the utmost faith that with our combined powers, we’ll blow up the Internet today.
Frugal Limericks, by Cubert
There once was a couple from Boston
They saved and they wrote about it often
Living out in the woods
With tics up to no good
But never did their frugal resolve soften
A-hem. Stay with me here people!
Some say Longmont is the capital of FIRE
You can hang with Carl if you call him “Sire”
The town is quite lovely
Its beer worth the money
But the weed, Carl says, makes the town inspired
They get better. A little…
Once there lived a noble physician
She wrote about money wizards and magicians
One time at FinCon
She ran into a green swan
Then along came twin feathered opticians
Okay okay. It wasn’t that bad. One more? Maybe two?
There once was a lawyer named Kevin
Got side gigs? He’s got eleven
In dumpsters, he dives
He’ll hustle ’til he dies
Can you charge up those scooters in heaven?
Whoah! Gotta love that last one. But we’re not done yet!
There once was a doctor from way up north
Some big flippin’ goals this doc did put forth
On the side he saved lives
And made big dollar signs
But he’d never trade his beer for net worth
Finally, if you can’t get enough…?
I once met a girl out of Denver
An early retirement did she try to render
So she bought a caboose
And started makin’ that juice
To pay for her private bartender
There once was a blogger named Fritz
He had a penchant for retirement kibitz
One day he went hiking
Thought he saw an angel biking
But it was Suze Orman in her birthday outfit
Bonus points for anyone who can guess the limericks contributed (one each) from my friends the Physician on Fire and Mr. 1500 Days to Freedom. Happy New Year, Party People!!!
