Pachyderm Pageantry (Limerick) - Poem by Kelly Kurt

A heroic, striped rhinoceros
Received a medal, pre-posthumous
Though he wasn’t quite dead
It was pinned to his head
Touching, but a tad preposterous

    A difficult poem, who was that thick skinned declared dead though not completely dead. But when a medal was pinned to his head, did he survive? (Report) Reply

    No, he didn't survive and so could not receive a Nobel.: -)
    Thanks, Akhtar

    We are all rhinoceroses in one way or other.. In my part, at 70 kgs and 5 feet 8 inches, I might be baby rhino.. Thanks for sharing Kelly. (Report) Reply

    I honestly was just penning a ridiculous limerick, but when I finished, I saw the possibility for multiple interpretations. Thank you, Souren
