You make them look so easy, Jan! I saw an old man in a field, He had a tackle that just wouldn't yield, As it hung so low, He had no place to go, Too late for his fate had been sealed! I think I'm close to the rhythm, just gotta work on the context!

Your comment made me smile Duke, sadly I think there are many who can relate to bullying in the work place and it affects both men and women:-(hugs Jan xx

Anyone who talks about dodecahedrons is OK in my book.

thanx Jan. i can't come close to Sir Green. But to support your expensive limerick habit, let me copy one i just shared with sweet Lisa Ricci. "Since you went away, /The mice came out to play/ Now you called me Mister/ But I've been called Mother, Princess, & Sister/ So Lisa, don't ever go away/ {but of course, she cannot stop us having fun on Limerick Saturdays!!} AD

At first I thought there was a glitch. When I read this I started to twitch. Though there was no yearning, my ears they weren't burning. But something just started to itch. :) Fun one Jan.
