My Attempt at a Limerick

the neighbor's grass is always greener
and their house is always cleaner
but just remember
that come December
their family won't be any leaner

    Adam, You met the criteria of a Limerick (syllables and rhyme) but the message you're conveying is bewildering to me. Nevertheless, I'm glad to see that your poem was featured.
