Honeymoon Vacation

Just a honeymoon beach vacation,
a fine nuptial love celebration;
   we arrived a night early,
   we would find hotel surely:
“No rooms” was the sad proclamation.

“An hour away you might find one.”
They were right for we only found…NONE!!
  We got off beaten path.
  too tired then to laugh,
looked for a place “mom and pop” run.

Well, it must have been close to midnight,
exhausted the lady and her knight;
  we found Motel Warwick,
  a guest house illicit,
and christened our honeymoon site.

Dear Faye, Your poem gave me a great laugh! The "Warwick" motel? Glad I didn't go there for my honeymoon. Syllable count was a bit off, but the poem was too funny not to place. Congrats on your win and thanks for participating in the contest. Love, Carolyn

Thank you, Carolyn. Yes, the Warwick Motel...we dubbed it Warwick Castle. Thanks for your generous placement of my poem; I have not written many limericks and need to work on that form more. Hope your vacation was lovely.
