Your Limerick Toes



I apologize to you my dear Miss Wattle For stepping on your Limerick toes Got caught up in the fun, couldn't help myself A great way to get rid of your woes They've been around for a donkey's age How long is that, do you know Probably much longer than a week or two To write one Miss Wattle will show The first, second, and fifth lines rhyme Like Tim, swim, and him Third and fourth lines rhyme with each other So whatcha you waiting for...

    Dragon and I have decided that... that poetry group is not for us... The people involved are great... But the guy running it might not appreciate Dragon's presence or joy de vive... The group here is better... We decided... Might not be enough to start a meetup in our town any way... And Dragon would probably run them off... and it might be a bit expensive to provide that many fire retardant suits... After all... Dragon is quite the critic... No one seems to be able to reach your heights in his mind... LOL
