You know something I'm really bad at?
I think it is because I do not have the proper attitude; a good limerick requires a somewhat bawdy thought process, which is not really my work-brain specialty.
Nonetheless! In honor of the new year, I am going to endeavor to write a limerick a week, one about each of the books that First Second has published. We shall see how this goes; perhaps by the end of the year, I shall be better at limericks. Or else killed by the internet's poetry fans.
(If you are shocked and alarmed by the thought of poorly written limericks from my upright-thinking brain, feel free to e-mail me and contribute your own: )
And now! Limerick #1: Adventures in Cartooning
There was a hotheaded young knight
Who longed to get in a fight
But fights come with learning
And she wished with great yearning
That she could just hit something with all of her might.
(Terrible, right? Though, I defy you to do something even a little bit lewd with this book! It does not lend itself to it at all — most inconvenient!)
