Architects Warning

“Oh Prisoner,” Warned the architect, “I mean no disrespect. But you can’t climb out of jail; These walls aren’t built to scale.”

    ACES, James! What a clever play on words. Very, very creative and funny limerick. Way to go! (Did you mean "no disrespect?) Love this one. Best wishes, Carolyn

    A short write, but a good one. I have one question: In your third line, did you really want to include "no" instead of "on"?
