About Limericks of Protest
Enjoy the content as you will. We have comments turned off for the simple reason of… this is my hobby, not my job. Fighting trolls is not my idea of fun.

If you wish to use a verse to further the cause, please include LimericksOfProtest.com as author credit. However, if you share without attributing, I’ll get over it. When I see one of my verses appear out of the blue from quarters unexpected, then I shall feel like I’ve made a difference.

My beloved, Mrs. LoP has goaded me into this current paroxysm of poetry. My friend the web guru challenged me to take it further than Facebook.
We’ll fill in more details as we go along.
Mrs. LOP has designed and maintained a few other websites for her own use and in her volunteer work. She happily helped with this site as she’s been encouraging me to take a more public stance with my limericks.
