Best Jack Horne Poems

+ Fav Poet


There was an old driver called Thorn,
Who said, 'I’m the best ever born,' 
As he spoke of himself,
And his talents and wealth,
Despite all the faces forlorn,
He kept right on tooting his horn.

For FJ's trash-talking I Spit Fire contest

A 6-line limerick to meet the contest's minimum line requirement

    Very clever. And I wonder if this person is a real person in your life. I certainly was reminded of someone in mine. Toot Toot. Peace. :)

    Wow a limerick parody of someone who likes to beat their own dreams in needless boasting. Oh these traits can b contagious. I rmembr a group of gals how they were boasting about someting dat got me into boasting about my tings too out of peer pressure.
