Tiger's Wood

Tiger was a young golfer quite good
But didn't shoot as straight as he should
    He'd stray out of bounds
    While making his rounds
Because he couldn't master his wood

    G'day Roy... Tiger was a very naughty boy at the Australian open a few years back and his putting hasn't been the same since. Another enjoyable read thank you Roy - Lindsay

    rereading this one. it is so clever!! by the way, did you take down some of your poems? I seem to remember you had more than these. Maybe I am just imagining it.

    Thank you very much for being so accommodating and thoughtful as to upload my file to your own account. I truly appreciate it! Also, can I say that your idea for a contest is really great-- I have tried before to post audio files of my poem and my interest in it somewhat died (due to some frustrations in sharing it, but now I see it is easier) and I have forgotten about it, but you have revived that interest for me. Thank You. Enjoy your day, Roy! :)

    Hi Roy! This is a very fun limerick, made me chuckle :) and I see that this won, so congrats to you! Btw, I saw your comments about the link that I included--thank you so much for the heads up on it. I hope it's ok that I use a different file sharing site? One where the person viewing it can directly listen to the audio file without downloading it first? If not, I will gladly use your dropbox link :)

    brilliant limerick Roy, so funny, and so well crafted...

  1. Date: 3/24/2013 4:21:00 PM
    hahaha, this is REALLY GOOD. this is what a limerick is meant to be and I hope the judge realizes that and gives you a top score, Roy. I have one to work on now but it will be tame by comparison.
