Flawed Limericks

There is a state of mind known as woebegone
In which one feels like an addict on methadone
The more one tries to feel upbeat
The more one suffers mental defeat
And the mind plays on like a gramophone.
The boys outside the bar appeared rapscallion
Their actions were downright reptilian
 Every time a girl would walk by
One would let out a loud cry
Acting just like an overheated young stallion
There was an old lady from New Jersey
Who recently moved to Poughkeepsie
She met this old fart
In a local Kmart
And the two proceeded to get quite tipsy
Roger was smug and a bit of a grandee
Others viewed him as somewhat of a dandy
The girls giggled and downright snickered
Because they knew he sought entry to their knickers
But alas, with buttons and zippers he just wasn’t handy     
Bobby was well known for his generosity    
But also known for his excessive gulosity
He would take you to lunch anytime
But always state “what’s left over is mine”
And clean the table with the utmost ferocity
There was this old man from Toledo
That liked to parade around in his speedo
The old ladies would giggle
Watching his sagging butt jiggle
But it did little or nothing for their libido
There is this retired gentleman in south Buda
Who would like to vacation in Bermuda 
But his poem book didn’t sell worth squat
Now he’s stuck with who knows what
As he reads travel brochures in his pad in south Buda
There is this Colorado guy in the Springs
Whose Windows computer does unusual things
The damn screen turned permanently black
So he went out and bought a new Mac
Now he doesn’t answer when his telephone rings

    YOu took a unique approach to this contest, just using limericks and calling them flawed. haha. Kudos for thinking outside the box. And I saw many whose humor was not flawed but very funny! congratulations. LUv, Andrea
