    1. Good job John Bevan! Cool idea to use limericks!

      I like that it has a different meaning when read as a whole.

      That’s difficult to achieve with a Cleave! (ouch. Limericking is contagious.)

    2. A cleaved limerick
      —for john bevan

      there once was a poet-a poet named cleave
      a weaver of words-weaving into the night
      weaving all day long-words into songs
      weaving into light-weaving & cleaving
      until finally-weave became woof
