There are sonnets scattered throughout Don Quixote, yet the slapstick humor that is found in the novel makes me think that limericks are a more fitting style of poetry for Cervantes’ work. So, I have composed a limerick about our knight and his refusal to be mortally wounded in his adventures.
Oh, battered Knight of the Sorry Face
Not many of your teeth left in place
Rocks thrown at your head
Skull bashed while in bed
At the graveyard, we’ll save you a space.
Anyone else have a Don Quixote-inspired limerick to share?
