Crashing for Cash

Attorneys will flock to your side
Before your blood even has dried
     Can crashing for cash
     Do much for YOUR stash?
Each lawyer their cut tries to hide

Five lawyers came calling on me
Good grief!  I had just skinned my knee
     Have I grounds to sue?
     I don’t think I do
Just do it to pay lawyer’s fee

Hi Carolyn, You penned some good ABC limericks for the contest. You made it look easy . But I know first hand that it wasn't easy at all. Although you made it humorous, lawyers all about the money. You expressed that point realy well in this piece. I wish you the best of luck in the contest:-) Alexis

Well done on the excellent topic and the witty smooth way you handled it, Carolyn. Also of note is how easily you managed the alphabetical part of it! A winner all the way! Hugs // paul

Thanks, Paul. The alphabet aspect wasn't too bad once I started writing.

Hi Carolyn, The first to arrive at an accident scene here in Johannesburg are the accident tow vehicles and oh my word, how they argue as to who will tow the prize away! I call them vultures! Entertaining limericks. Poetry wishes, Jennifer.

A great brace of limericks Carolyn written by instruction. There's nothing forced in them and the topic is great - thank you Carolyn - Lindsay

Hi Carolyn, well done for managing this very difficult limerick. I know how hard it is to write a standard limerick. I have tried many times and I just can't do it. The harder I try, the worse things get. I hope you do well with this limerick. It reads well. You took on the challenge and this one reads like a winner. Have a wonderful Thursday. Hugs....Mike. XX

No way could I attempt doing this limerick in alphabetical order. I can't even write a regular one. This is so impressive Carolyn! I am sure it will be a winner! Brava! : ) xxoo

Tomeet the alphabetical requirements, there is some loss in humor. Otherwise, the challenge isn't too difficult once you get started, PS.

Oh! So well done, and within those strict contest guidelines. A winner, for sure. And who knows? You may have given birth to another lawyer joke or two, so to speak. Best wishes, Gershon

Not hard to do as I've met a couple lawyers who are jokes themselves. Thanks for reading, Gershon.

Keeping the meter AND the alphabetical lines is a challenge, but not too hard once you start writing. Appreciate comments from the "Limerick Master." Thanks for reading, Ed!

Wow, Carolyn. Impressively penned to meet the challenge superbly.
