A Struggle to Behave

I'm just not an athletic go-getter.
Won't catch me in a teams scarf or sweater.
But what I watch on TV, 
That always does it for me,
Wrestling- and the dirtier the better!!!

    Great Limerick..My father always enjoyed wrestling matches on TV...I am glad that I chose this one to read today..Thanks for reading my work..Yes, Swans mate for life and if their mate dies they grieve just like people ....The only way they separate from the mate they have chosen is that for some reason they don't produce offsprings then rarely they will separate..Great Limerick..Sara

    OOOH Sylvia wrestling lol ...uh huh! Nice write tho! Just wanted to tell you thanks.

    Sylvia. I would so love to see this one place. A small suggestion. think of a word to rhyme with getter and better (maybe sweater?) and work it into the end of line one! then it will be closer to true limerick form! (oops, was it June you name?) LUv, Andrea (how about, I'm not one to wear a sports sweater?)
