There was once a nerd

There was once a nerd so eager to lurk
Well fed up with his life and his cattle
So  he took off with a boat
But that boat did not float
And started to swim from Dover to Dunkirk

    Enjoyed the fact that he did something to get out of the funk that he was in, Gert. As always, enjoyed the view! Always, Annalise

    This is such a cute take on the limerick contest, Gert. I laughed reading it! Best wishes for success in Deb's contest. I'm glad you didn't get hit with another flood. I've seen roads, bridges and piers totally washed away here in Florida during hurricanes. Many homes have also been destroyed. Thanks for writing to me. Love, Carolyn
