National Limerick Day Fun
National Limerick Day is observed on May 12th in celebration of the English artist, illustrator, author, and poet Edward Lear (May 12, 1812 - January 29, 1888). Lear is mostly known for his literary nonsense in poetry, prose, and limericks.
So what is a limerick? A limerick is a short, humorous, nonsense poem with 5 lines - the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme and the second and third rhyme. There is a distinct sing-song rhythm.
Here is our first attempt at a silly SERVPRO limerick. How did we do? Can you come up with a better limerick for us?
There once were some techs from SERVPRO
Who had just poured a fresh cup of joe
But emergencies just can
Ruin your plan
So off they go to ease your woe
It may just be a silly rhyme, but SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton & Southern Lake Counties techs have left many fresh cups of coffee behind to run out to those in need.
