Stock the Shelves a Mile High

Some Random Limericks

To Start the Day.


A gross habit obscene and bizarre

one like sneezing on a salad bar

never washes his hands

and with confidence stands

to put fingers in my cookie jar.


And then there is a story that’s fraught

with many life lessons seldom taught

life is not always sweet

so smile at those you meet

if you’re lucky you might just get caught.



The moral of this story my child

it doesn’t pay to always be wild

for instance in your class

put away all that sass

some places it’s prudent to be mild.



It went off in a capital style

this removal of my bathroom tile

I am down to the wood

I have done all I could

will have to remain bare for awhile.



Spurred on by a very high wager

the cowboy put himself in danger

spent the night in outhouse

was as quiet as a mouse

eating beans is a real life-changer.



Repertoire ranged from classics to jazz

each musician sharing their pizzazz

we move to the dance floor

our feet seem to want more

as if life had gained some razzmatazz.



Berries, berries all kinds of berries

from our trees to our commissaries

let’s feed them to our troops

with many different soups

with none for revolutionaries.



Beneath tree one rainy day in May

a child waited for a moment’s play

with a ball and a bat

he wore his glove as hat

even wet he knew rain wouldn’t stay.



So he rigged up a clever device

to find a way to cook perfect rice

hardly fit in garage,

he couldn’t camouflage,

to fit on the stovetop would be nice.


For a sculpture that’s really first class

keep in mind the materials mass

cotton candy won’t do

problems with string cheese too

or when trying to carve a Lake Bass.

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing. If you desire to find my other work on the internet feel free to stop by my website The website offers articles on poetry, poems, and links to all my other writing.
