My Economic Woes Doze .

The Soup kitchen's queue are in line .
The economy , banjaxed and dyin' .
When Lehmans went bust
The bankers just cussed
So now , " Buddy who can spare a dime " ?.

I called up my banker , by chance .
With an invite to the " Poor Peoples " dance .
He came dressed in rags
With two plastic bags
And the ass missing , from his old pants .

No Ferraris or Mercs to be seen .
For between us , we hadn't a bean .
The soup it was cold
And the bread , it had mould
And Seamus the Chef , was a " Queen " .

The dessert trolly started to shake .
Baked Alaskas were fried like a steak .
Amid all the wailin'
In strolled Sarah Palin
" Vote me in and I'll give you a break " .

I awoke in a lather of sweat
At the characters I had just met .
With a sad sorry weep
I went straight to sleep.
"Snore it off , Seán , that's as good as 'twill get .


Perspired by Carolyn's , Limerick contest ....

    Your sense of humor has always given me reason to smile. You have a gift in that area. Thank you for your kind comment. I decided to drop by the site and respond to some comments. Sorry for the delay. Like you, I don't know that I really fit in the new Soup community. I still plan to visit from time to time. Best wishes with your writing. Keep that talent shining! Karen

    No Sean,it was England's victories over the old 'enemy' the Aussies,beating them at Criciket(with help from our Irish import) and Johnnos narrow win, via Wilko's boot once again.It's always good to get good weather when the days are longest it's what makes for a good summer.Hope it has been as fine in your parts of these Isles.Rgds Brian .

    The FA will have this if we don't make the next round.Even then it could the Germans who( as always) are on song or uber alles as they would have it.It will take more than an Italian job now for us .Still its nice to see folk displaying our flag in the streets etc hereabouts for a change.Rgds Brian

    Thanks for your kind comment today. Awaiting for some more humor from you. You have a way of brightening my day. Smiling in West Fargo, Karen

    I give you a top mark for the effort. One is colloquial and minor. But two is deliciously politically incorrect and three has the grit and the guts to take it out into controversy, which I like. Four has wicked wit, which is one of your greatest strengths,and five has resignation as resolution, which is fine. Good piece. I have always liked your novel approaches and originality. Being a fellow Irishman, I am proud of you! Regards and thanks, Gerard
