Billy Sunday

Bro Billy Sunday preached that salvation Was the key to avoiding damnation In pulpits he'd sweat and shout And fling his arms all about As if fighting bees in his oration! Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired © All Rights Reserved

Billy Sunday started out by being a professional baseball player in the 1880's. He never was a great player, so he turned to evangelism. Good limerick Bob.

I wonder how many bees Billy truly brought to the cross. I know he had quite a crowd. Thanks for your compliments and comments about my being a teacher. I've suggested my son sleep with a calculator to see if his math marks would improve. Love your poems. Have a great day filled with plenty of sunshine, my friend. What do you think of my Talebearing Donkey? No one seems to comment and wonder if the message is not clear.

oh bob, this is a great one! i think limericks suit your sense of humor very well! thanks for comparing me to ogden nash - i'm very honored that you think i belong even remotely close to his work. i feel a bit closer to dr. seuss (although not nearly at his level, either!)
