Please select your favorite. There are some good ones!

Question:
1) The abandoned mine near Millers Creek
Still has gold that today's drillers seek,
But the dang fools are bravin'
The risk of a cave-in:
The central support pillar's weak.

2) At the cinema in Millers Creek
My gal said, “But Ben Stiller’s weak
I don’t find him funny”
I said, “Don’t worry honey,
Just watch with a painkillers’ tweak.”

3) I went fishing down at Millers Creek
But my rowing boat started to leak
So all the fish that I took
Were then let off the hook
As it sank, to my chagrin and pique.

4) On summer nights in Millers Creek
Pervert Pete thought he'd take a peek
Glass panes, inside he looked
Coppers came. He was booked!
Now, the slammer, not bold, he's meek

5) On her doorstep in Millers Creek
She only let him kiss her cheek,
One day, he was told
He was much too old
He only sighed and took a leak.

6) The fellows who cruise Millers Creek
Are bored after working all week.
They drink themselves nuts
Then strip to their butts
And run thro the town: it's a streak!

7) A young gal who hates Millers Creek
Was raised there and finds it quite bleak.
She feels that the locals--
All spinsters and yokels--
Cannot comprehend her true chic.

8) On Trump's way through Millers Creek,
His cell phone, he started to seek.
He tweeted, "FAKE NEWS!!!"
Why didn't he lose?
Now, our future is looking bleak!

9) As soon as I find Millers Creek
Rudder oiled, so there’s no tiller squeak
On the boat (named the Nancy,
Which tickled my fancy!)
I'll hear Ernie Bushmiller speak.

10. 'Twas Shu who exclaimed: "Millers Creek!"
The rhyme is so hard - I did shriek!
There are so many sites,
Like "Seoul" or the "Heights."
But this venue really does reek!

11) Never ever go to Millers Creek
They make stuff that swillers seek
There is beaucoup cash
In all that sour mash
The air's foul distiller's wreak

Choices:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)
11)

We need more votes!

BTW, I got a message from someone that she/he mistakenly voted for the wrong limerick. You can’t correct these without deleting all the votes. So - subtract a vote for number 10 and add a vote for number nine.

I guess we only have 6 voting then.

The winner is: Hab! Congratulations! I loved his "tiller squeak," and of course his reference to the Nancy and Ernie Bushmiller.

Here are the others:

1. Shu
2. Bob
3. Bob
4. Sattva
5. Sattva
6. Bethree
7. Bethree
8. Sattva
9. Hab
10. Kalleh (I was positioned right to write this one. Wink)
11. Geoff

For such a hard word, these answers are pretty darned good! Thank you everyone!

You're up, Hab!

Hmm.

In the interests of keeping with the KISS principle, I suggest we just follow the road and see where it takes us...
