Echo Park Limericks

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.
