Sandy Helps Dandy Randy

There was an old codger named Randy
He rolled on the beach and got sandy
It was there that he slept 
and remained so unkempt
But was sure that his life was so dandy.

Then along came a lady named Sandy
She wanted so much to help Randy
To soften his heart,
she played a big part,
But refused to give him some brandy

Now Randy began to awaken
And  realized that he was mistaken
He thought no one cared
Because no one dared
to approach him, and now he was shaken.

So then, he got up from his stupor
And started to become a good trooper
He began to help others
who didn’t have mothers
From then on his life was just super.

    Nice set of four limericks that collectively tell a nice story. We had a hurricane named "Sandy" blow through here a little over a year ago. She didn't help anybody.
