hoisted by my own petard

To go out today would be a farce
Bitterly cold and sunshine sparse
I wanted to play
But there was no way
I would certainly land on my arse

    Russell, I loved this. It's right up my alley, since I would most definitely fall on my butt on a day like that (I'm clumsy). I very much appreciated your good, clean humour! Congrats on your win in my contest!

    This Witty, humorous limerick gave me a chuckle and remembrance of my years in UTah where slipping on the ice and landing on the arse in the winter was quite common :)
