Beware the Green Brew

There once was a witch from Purdue
Who put a broadleaf in her brew
It floated on top 
And caused a green froth
That when drank changed your whole world view.

your words soften my heart like a damsel in need of a companion..... Your lines are sweeteners to a curious mind which is absolutely satisfied. There's this eagerness I have running to your pages and your reputation of meeting that expectation is beyond any form of appreciation or grading. Beyond 7 my friend!!

Thanks for your comment and kind words on my first post ... even when I posted that one it was written quite awhile back. It's a strange feeling looking at what you've written far back. I'll try and post, read, and make comments on occasion (even if I don't have new material!) ... I'm missing out on good poetry and even greater friends.

My pleasure Tim: I hav found that it is impossible too see all the poetry here so I am going to concentrate on a few whose friendship and poems I enjoy. If you want to get a real chuckle read some of Viv Wigley and Laurie Lindsay, They are humorous and good poets to boot. SuZ

Lol. What I like about your punchline is that it's open to interpretation. Is it poison? Did she gain sudden insight? Who knows... Limericks are always fun. It can sure be tricky though thinking of a punchline! I think it was several months before I could pen my first limerick ... and when inspiration finally came, I went limerick-crazy for a couple weeks.
