The King Who Was Bullied



A man who was highly esteemed
hailed by all the almighty king
was knocked down to size
bullied by tough guys
and now he's a small figurine.

Good try at a limerick, Laurie. I love the last line. It's perfect!

Thanks... it's not a limerick to a tee; I added a little variety.

That was a fun take on the picture!! ...and a sad end to some monarchs who end in this way!!

Jinksy said...

I know several people who could do with cutting down to size in this way! LOL

Sometimes the best solution to some issues is making a figurine out of too big sizes :) Excellent this one is!

Nicely-written take on this week's prompt.

Fireblossom said...

That's hilarious. :-P

Pssst...should that be "hailed"?

Hilarious Laurie! A king would be reduced to size if he could be bullied such. He'd better not! Nice limerick!

TC! Just too cute! I think we have a lot of humor when it comes to kings.

Mary Ann Potter said...

Oh, cute as can be! I love this Magpie prompt, too. You know, I tried a limerick and had absolutely no good results, so I went with a Lewis Carroll-ish verse. I like yours so much better! 8-)

great limerick- most politicians need to be cut down to size- the power goes right to their heads and common sense!

Brian Miller said...

haha happens far to often to those in-sane enough to desire being king...nice limerick!
