June or December

He carried June right to his bed With promise that they would be wed But her sweet honey pot Was much hotter than hot He came out missing his "head" He looked straight down at his member It's head burnt off by her ember She was so hot and bold He much preferred the cold It might grow back in December! A Lamleen production Created with my friend Eileen Manassian.

Hi Richard, Loved the collaboration, you both write well together. I never find Limericks so easy, that is why i never do any. Every one i have tried has been a disaster. I always Love the fun element. Well this one has that Richard. A Bravo!!! to you both Richard and most definitely a seven. Brings tears to the eyes. I wince as i remember his member....Vlad.

Hahaha... wow, didn't expect this one Rick! "Head" . Very snappy, like a limerick should be. Though I don't about growing back in December (unless you're part lizard ... lol).

One would fear or not prefer the cold if it has experience hot and bold. Nicely written Richard.

Limericks are so much fun and comparatively easy to write, and yours is good. I feel like a syllable is missing in the third line of each stanza. Threw the beat off a bit for me. Something like, "But her sweet honey pot," and "She was so hot and bold." Just some thoughts and readily ignored.

Good morning Mark, I appreciate your suggestion and I agree. I have not written many lymirics so this is helpful.
