Beer Keg Legs


Meg has two old battered beer keg legs
that don't look to hold much more than dregs. 
But when Greg comes along 
she begs; "Please, please, belong 
to me.  I still gotta lotta eggs.”

    The pieces of this limerick puzzle fit together nicely. They collectively tell an amusing tale.

    haha, such a desperate weird thing for a female to say. I still make lots of eggs! But it sounds great in this limerick! (and yes, my mustang made me look good!)

    Yea, can't imagine any female say that, but I ran out of rhymes for 'legs.'
