Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

24 Tasks of the Festive Season - Door 1 / Dia de los Muertos (Task 1)

Task 1:  Write a silly poem or limerick poking fun at the fiction character of your choice.


Not going to lie, I totally bribed MT and got him to write this one for me.  Nobody, and I do mean nobody wants to read my efforts at poetry.  Since points are going to charity, I don't feel bad about this at all.


The heroine of England, my favourite Jane,

(you are guessing "Austen", but don't complain);


We're talking the Queen of the high teas,

cakes, and gossip, with murders to please;


She may be an old bitty with blue eyes,

but add cyanide or yew berries, and someone dies;


A cool, calculating mind while others are ditzy,

It's dear Miss Marple, from the Queen Agatha Christie.


(any punctuation errors are mine - I really do suck with the poetry thing.)
