Backstage Disaster

Learned lots of things in theater workshop class
I was surprised when I learned I had passed
     Just one tool I'd not mastered
     The great Nail Gun Disaster
I had nailed the director in the _ss

    This is a riot, young lady!! I just concluded the judging for your tribute of fine poetry. If you would like to post a blog to share your tho'ts on these incredible heartfelt narratives, go to it. lol The hardest and easiest contest I have ever judged. If a narrative wasn't included, it was removed immediately. You have really touched me with your fine poetry, Carolyn. I love you sincerely! Go win with this crazy limerick now! :) Gwendolen
