Moldy Hair from Boston

I knew a girl, from Boston she came
When she arrived, things were not the same
Here on this tiny lake
All the fish knew her fake
Her neon green hair sure was damn lame

My only crit is; you should use a little punctuation to keep the rhythm.

"I knew a girl, from Boston she came
When she arrived, things were not the same
Here on a tiny lake
Even the fish were fake
[And] her neon green hair was lame

is sometimes necessary as Geezer stated. Your title is intriguing for a limerick title. It has that nonsensical air to it that limericks are so popular for. The poem also has that classical fun. Nice one!

....so like my lost dreams...the flood

I agree with the punctuation it guides like it is supposed to.
The last line though I want to leave at 9 syllables so I don't really care for it as is and will work on it. Have the whole month.
