Lover's Complaint

Your long term plans, I have not seen ‘em. And all those love vows, you don't mean ‘em. You have only got eyes for my long limber thighs, and that small bit that lies between ‘em. 09/26/11 *Adapted from a Limerick by ‘Poet Unknown’

Sounds like the fire is needing to be lit! Just hope it stays under control. This one is just clever and I love it.

I love limericks and I did borrow from an old, well worn one; who knows who wrote it, but I love it. At my age I'm not so much over hormoned as amused by sex. No, I've not quit and, no, no contest. Just fun.
