Since there are about sixteen Romes in just the USA, can we simply end each line with a different Rome? I know Greg would say no, but he's not here, soooo...? Roll Eyes

BTW, did the wolf in the story of the original Rome have a name? Did the expression, "sucking hind tit" come about as a result of Remus' subordinate position?

Geoff, if you can make a meaningful limerick about five different Romes, I say go for it.

Ahh, that word "meaningful". I can't make a meaningful limerick out of one Rome! I wrote some non-meaningful ones, though.

I have several so far, and of good technical quality, but more is always merrier. Have at it, folks!

Mine is in. I didn't think I was going to like it, but in the end I'd have to give it a B+, i think. It's not an A, though.

I did submit something. Ugh...

I've forgotten how to write these things. Senility has set in.

We make a great team, Geoff! You have forgotten and I still haven't learned. Some of the ones that get the most votes, I don't think are good and at other times, I agree that they are. I guess I am unable to assess their quality very well.

I hadn't expected Rome to be hard to rhyme.

Geoff, to answer your question, my limerick is in Hab's private messages.

Speaking of Rome, I recently watched a video rendering of Ken Follett's "The Pillars of The Earth." It depicted England when it was still under the religious control of Rome. If you like blood, gore, treachery, and a zillion plot twists, watch it. Great cast! If you read fifty times faster than I do, read the novel.

Or perhaps
- English
- Chicago
- custody
- limbo
- bad taste
- sipid (or, by contrast, teresting)
Lotsa choices!

I'd like to post these Saturday morning 8/25 or even Friday evening, so we can give them due consideration and vote over the weekend. Still missing one regular participant, though.

- sane
- carcerated
-continent
- effable (It's sad when there's nobody to eff with.)

I'm still not receiving your posts, Hab, despite having repeatedly switched off the "hide posts" option. This is In - scrutable!

...and bizarrely enough I just yesterday found your profile checked as blocked on my devices. Ineffable indeed...

Only my profile? How about if I face you?

This place has gremlins! Or maybe a golem?

I found my problem (and fixed it) on the Go To > Personal Zone > Ignore List screen, and working from there. Is that where you’ve been?

Yes. It doesn't seem to understand my requests to quit blocking you, hence the supernatural considerations.

I can't wait to see what rhymes everyone else used.
