An Eye For An Eye

There once was a couple of cats Who fought in continuous spats. The result was a tie When each scratched out an eye - An old-Biblical tit for a tat! The cats awoke up bleeding and weak And half-seeing the havoc they’d wreaked They discarded their clothes, Their backsides to expose - A new-Biblical turning of cheek!

    ... turning of cheek! I never thought that could be turned dirty, but it happened... funny stuff! Typically I like limericks to just keep to the one stanza... but for this one it was absolutely necessary. Great humor with a good deal of nonsense... I like me some nonsense in my limericks :)

    T - thanks for the visit. Had some time to read today, always up for some lims - these newest ones are great. Got into your Boa trilogy for the first time. Wow! Will need more time to digest. I would love to see a cartoonist's depiction of "an eye for an eye." It conjures up great images of that Biblical prattle

    Thanks Andrea... on occasion, I have heard 'cat fight' in reference to a fight between women... Of course, I wouldn't dare take sides on a question such as this... I'm afraid I don't have 9 lives... Terry (in any case I'm happy you loiked the Lim...)

    LOL, how do come up with these wonderful limericks? As I was reading this I immediately thought of "The Duel" by Eugene Field. Great write Terry.
