A Struggle to Behave

I'm just not an athletic go-getter. Won't catch me in a teams scarf or sweater. But what I watch on TV, That always does it for me, Wrestling- and the dirtier the better!!!

Well said Sylvia, I'm not a fan of any kinds of sports,, well Dallas cowboys perhaps.. But as far as wrestling,, can't seem to find the interest in there at all. Sure enjoyed your poem,, By the way,I'm also here to say,, how i love the comments you leave me or any others poet, I enjoy the honest opinion you have 4 all of us.. Also your words are so inspiring,, Thanks always,, have a blessed day,..p.d

Great Limerick..My father always enjoyed wrestling matches on TV...I am glad that I chose this one to read today..Thanks for reading my work..Yes, Swans mate for life and if their mate dies they grieve just like people ....The only way they separate from the mate they have chosen is that for some reason they don't produce offsprings then rarely they will separate..Great Limerick..Sara

Sylvia. I would so love to see this one place. A small suggestion. think of a word to rhyme with getter and better (maybe sweater?) and work it into the end of line one! then it will be closer to true limerick form! (oops, was it June you name?) LUv, Andrea (how about, I'm not one to wear a sports sweater?)

Happy to learn you liked "Ode to a Shrunken Sweatshirt". I tried the 'center' method and a few others and nothing worked. I finally got it centered using spaces and a lone (hopefully un-noticed) period for the first line. Hugs, ~Jim
