Limerick: Once a School-Girl who didn't like babies

Once a School-girl who didn’t like babies Once a School-girl who didn’t like babies Thought it’d be better than having scabies So she engaged a Boor To bore through the stuck door: That’s how she got both babies and scabies. © T. Wignesan – Paris, 2013

Hi Sara! Welcome! You chose the right word. Despite the limerick's obvious under-and-over-tones, the piece is really quite serious and addresses issues at the essence of reproductive activities - I do wish to think so. And why not? I just happen to be partial about the fate of the fairer sex: they are the ones who pay the price! Thanks a lot. Every good wish. Wignesan
