For May 12, 2021 – Limerick Day

I try to make choices sublime.

I research and fuss all the time.

     The lines get so blurred

     From ‘fact’ to ‘I heard’

That surely I could lose my mind.


Eat catfish deep-fried or not so.

I search for the experts, you know,

     But chef or a doc,

     My tastebuds or clock?

My brain flip-flops long to and fro.


Take shots or just skip the vaccine?

No matter which way, folks are mean.

      The ‘facts’ both ways sway

       And change day by day!

My patience with ‘experts’ grows lean.


The river is calling to float,

By tube or by kayak or boat?

     I may do all three,

     Each time with KC’s.

I’m thrilled river’s not a dark moat.


Does Facebook provide all you need?

The newspaper surely you read.

      The PN is great,

       It will set folks straight.

So read it for facts, you won’t bleed.


This poem is for fun, hope you see,

For Limerick Day and for me,

     I hope you do smile,

     Don’t think I’m senile,

For sharing some rhyme glee with thee.

About Teresa Pearson Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. You might still find me at the reservation desk when spring rolls around. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content coordinator for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist/stringer for the local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.
