Time Travel by Limerick

There once was a Druid who traveled through time.

He lived to be myth and created Naill’s Nine.

He fought quite a war,

He’s sometimes a boar

Now that he spends his days in this head of mine.

Despite writing a book about time travel, I couldn’t find a passage I didn’t have to edit down to fit this prompt. So, here’s a limerick about Dubh Súile (AKA D). I’m sure he’ll take me to task for it later.

About KM Sullivan

Descended of pirates and revolutionaries, KM Sullivan is a lover and student of all things Irish. Born in the States, she is a dual US/Irish citizen, and studied history and politics at University College, Dublin – although, at the time, she seriously considered switching to law, if only so she could attend lectures at the castle on campus. She lives in the American Midwest with her son, two cats and a pesky character in her head named D (but you can call him Dubh). Her first book, Changelings: Into the Mist, a young adult historical fantasy is available now on Amazon and Barns and Noble. She can be found writing with said character at her blog, The D/A Dialogues.

  1. That’s great. Really curious about D’s past. More than before.

  2. No fair! You started with a time traveler right in your head! :>) Great limerick.

  3. […] How about yesterday’s little limerick, […]

  4. What a cute little poem, Katie! One question, though. Is it boar or bore? Just curious 🙂
