Closet Case

She looks like death on a crippled spider Hips like an elephant, maybe wider My friends came over and saw My ugly mother-in-law Next time they come they want me to hide her

Tut, tut, naughty Larry! Does she ever see what you have written? I'm a mum-in law, hope I'm not seen like this.Mind you my hips aren't major wide.But if her's are,where couldyou possibly hide her?This needs a bit of working out.Next limerick maybe?Good one this and good laugh.Thanx Larry.Congrats on making feature page.

You give us images, Larry...frightening images of this woman. And yet you always make us laugh at the same time. Takes talent! You should be a standup comic. Love, Carolyn
