• Lone Star Limericks

  • Pay tribute to the people, places, sights, and sounds of this great city and state by immortalizing (or gently mocking) them in verse! Your limerick can reference anything about Texas or Austin–your favorite (or least favorite) Texas person, city or state park, wildflower, animal, road trip experience, barbeque joint, I-35 exit, debilitating allergen–the sky’s the limit! Just keep it short and snappy. (And PG-13, please. Yes, yes, we know that “clean” limericks rarely rise above mediocrity. Think of it as a challenge! Any entry mentioning Nantucket will be immediately disqualified.)
