For Better or Verse

It can’t be said that crime-fiction limericks have been flooding Rap Sheet headquarters ever since we announced that we’d post such lighthearted verse on this page. However, we did publish an initial spill of this sort of doggerel, and below is one more entry, dispatched in our direction by blogger, short-story writer, film/TV critic, and fiction editor Gerald So:
A thief tried to break-and-enter
The home of a recluse inventor;
A fine laser beam
Aborted the scheme,
Piercing his heart in the center.
If you’d like to try your own hand at an original crime-fiction-related limerick, please send it here.
