Bully, Blow Hard and Old Geezer

Bully, the bull dog thought he was tough
He barked until his owner had enough
Bully went to the pound
A disgruntled old hound
He had a name change...now he's called "Scruff"

Blow Hard was a very ugly bullfrog
Sat in a pig sty on a rotten log
Boasted about his size
He was not very wise
Cuz the moron was eaten by a hog

There's an old geezer who has an ego
Told tales of his greatness for all to know
The haughty one cries
His tales were all lies
He's an old phony who has to eat crow

Bully, Blow Hard, and even that old Geezer dude
All three looked at life with eyes that were skewed
Moral of story...
There is no glory
In barking, boasting, or a haughty attitude

I have started to really enjoy limericks Lyn, you can put forward messages just as easy as any other style. You have lost none of your talent Lin. Your star still shines bright. I am putting this limerick along with the others i have read in my faves. May your pen ever run gold. Hugs....Mike. XX

Glad to hear you now like limericks, Mike. It's so far from your style. Thanks for the many kudos. Nice to see you, and I enjoyed your joke poem.

It makes me happy to have tickled your funny bone. Thanks a lot, Connie, for the compliments. I'm sure you could write limericks.

Lin, a great way to make a point with three seemingly unrelated limericks. Very nice. John

They do seem unrelated, but all three have the faults of an egotist. Problem is those with inflated egos never get the moral of any story. Thanks a lot for commenting, John.

Thank you, Arthur. I tried to make it as descriptive of an egotistical person as I could.

Manipulation is a disease of the egotist and even if they have gone through similar circumstances their empathy is false because it detracts from the attention they receive themselves....great lims Lin

lol, Jan! Let's recap. Bully is locked up in the dog pound and all he does now is growl. Blow Hard was devoured by a hog because he was boasting, and the old geezer dines on crow for lying. I think justice has been served
