Limerick: Once a Belly-Dancer in Cairo

Limerick: Once a Belly-Dancer in Cairo

Once a Belly-Dancer in Cairo
Tried to wiggle her way through Fado
Only thing she had on
Was a navel button:
(Now) Fado mambo-jambo Oporto.

Limerick: Once a Belly-Dancer in Cairo

Once a Belly-Dancer in Cairo
Tried to wiggle her way through Fado
Only thing she had on
Was a navel button:
Now she wiggles in jelly limbo.

    Thank you, indeed, for being able to smile. Limericks are meant to do just that, and I'm glad there's such a genre in our metier which permits outrageous licence... I mean, licentiousness! Every good wish and many thanks. Wignesan
