It's all in how you say it

While ours kill with flair and finesse
Banned weapons can make a fine mess
Since guys without class
Can possess poison gas
O-bomb-a will make an address

There's hype and there's hysteria
O-bomb-a needs criteria 
To send friend Bashar   
Wrapped presents from afar
His gift of love for Syria

    This was a good one too....A limerick, but the situation was frightening for us living so close to Syria. Already so many refugees are coming into Lebanon. I'm glad that the strike is not going to happen...Good write.

    This was cleverly penned Duke. I really enjoyed reading this one on this fine morning back here in Trinidad.

    I think I am so naive about all this stuff, Duke. I don't know what to believe!!! It's a powder keg, isn't it?

    A very good (scary) point! Love your clever Limericks! Always, Laura
