As all time's in short supply'

A man without a job Had scarce to fill his gob Scanning the press did See Much work in jeopardy..' So his pack; on back did lob. He'd take train to short supply Where time; was stacked up high.' As a man of Limerick town He was never feeling down For t'was surely worth the try!

Sad to say but many are still unemployed in our country today..Good limericks about the subject..Thanks for stopping by..I still have a discolored place under my eye on my cheek bone about one dime in size..My vision is still not completely back..I get eye strain very easily still.I think it has been about three weeks since surgery..I started today just putting two drops in my eye and will do them at night..Sara
