Mini-project: Write a limerick about each street in Echo Park. To be updated whenever inspiration strikes. Submissions welcome.
There once was an old man on Sunset
Who went to the Echo for one set.
But the band was too loud
And he hated the crowd
So he went home and polished his gun set.
A hipster who lived on Lemoyne
Looked, remarkably, just like Wayne Coyne.
His flaming-lipped smile
Worked with chicks, for a while
Did he realize? Yes. It was annoying.
A white guy down on Alvarado
Would say “I love this hood!” with bravado,
But when he saw a hint
Of a brownish skin tint
He’d turn green just like an avocado.
