The first line of the limerick was offered at:
when I was looking for writing prompts. I had no intention of poetry prompts such as these but when I went to the site and found this first line today, it struck a chord, perhaps because I had been for a haircut at 9 a.m. but more likely because I like the humor limericks are capable of producing. I came up with the following but I know my brain will not turn off with just this one so I am glad to know MADKANE plans to set more prompts out for future reference. I also appreciated the encouragements she added to the limericks folks had written.

A woman whose hair was quite gray
Decided to keep it that way
Some said she should change it,
Should style, rearrange it,
But the follicles are still gray today.
