Mac and Mac

To the diner Mac went for a meal Where he ordered two helpings of veal. All he had was one dime Could not pay! What a crime! Washing-up was the fairest MacDeal. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Limerick Contest Sponsor: Cecelia Hopkins-Drewer Placed 4th © 2nd June 2017

this is AWESOME. I don't know how she will choose from all the clever entries! And thanks for seeing both poems on the cold hearted one! I think only one or two people preferred it as free verse.

I'm elated by your feedback, Andrea! Thank you! ~ I think that any poem is usually at its best at the first attempt. Small changes can be made to better it (it often happens to me), but writing it all over seems to detract from its originality (my opinion, of course!) Regards // paul

Great limerick, Paul. Good luck with the contest. Regards, John.

A fun Limerick Paul! I can remember being in this spot once when I forgot my wallet, but thank goodness they trusted me to go get it and come back to pay. Good luck in the contest! : )

Thank you, Connie. Forgetting or mislaying a wallet is one thing, but there are some who do it intentionally. Not long ago I saw a waiter running after two young tourists...they split up, went opposite ways and disappeared! Regards // paul
