I <3 auto-antonyms

Submitted to Stan Carey’s limerick contest:

Auto-antonyms, sanction I must:
When I dust, I may add or take dust!
“Yeah, right!”’s your impression,
But this begs the question,
And leaves me now feeling nonplussed.

I have always loved them, but that love was given a name by Dinosaur Comics.

Updated 9/13/11, 9:30 am: I’ve submitted another entry.

My Bostonian sweetie says “water”
As those good old New Englanders taught her.
But me, I say “water”
As Philly folks should-er
And so we both speak as we oughta.
