Answer Me

If Heaven rewards people of worth And Hell awaits all those who love mirth Then the pain of life Is not worth the strife Why would a woman choose to give birth?

Hi Rico, Again your clever use of words is amazing! My son and daughter in law have also made the decision of not bringing a child into this world. No grandchildren, ouch! Yasou, Jennifer.

Well written Rico, interesting use of Limerick for what is usually a comical form. Very clever and powerful, regards, Kevin

Mahalo, Kevin. My son believes no responsible person would bring a child into Trump's world where lying, cheating, plundering, disparaging and blaming others, are lauded virtues. I maintain the joy of seeing one's children and grandchildren grow and develop is irreplaceable. Aloha! Rico
