Contradictions


To think of myself’s not a chore;
I’m neither a prude nor a boor.
I haven’t a clue
What I think of you,
But of me I want to know more!
 
The “more” that I know might confuse
The sensible side of my muse.
She tends to profess
That I am a mess—
But what does she know of my ruse?

I wrote the first limerick in June for the prompt “When I Think About Myself.” I’ve now conjoined it with a new limerick for the prompt “A Bundle of Contradictions.”

  1. “But of me I want to know more!”…I often think of this 🙂

  2. Haha! I’m not so sure I want to know more–or confuse my muse! Your poem resonates with the latter part of Anne’s diary entry when she says that whenever she gets serious, her inner jokester takes over.

  3. Without humour, life is an unbearable burden to carry, MMT. Consider it, armour for the horrors of life.

  4. Yes -witty and full of truth!

  5. Wonderfully witty and wise! 💜💜

  6. Like Anne, our poetic souls need the humour of the wit to face our mirror image. Nice poem on how to deal with our contradicting selves

    Thanks for dropping by my blog today

    Much💟love

  7. I love the humour, rhythm and rhyme in this! Such fun!

  8. Lisa at Greenbow

    The muse
    is often an excuse
    to ruse

  9. Lovely fun! (And serious too.)

  10. Sounds as if Miss Puddleduck is flummoxed:)

  11. a muse and a ruse… what’s to confuse!
