Young Mario had one hell of a fright Had a bad nightmare and a sleepless night He'd dreamt he was dead Woke up banged his head And lay awake until the morning light... Phoned his boss said" I won't be in today I'm worried I'll crash my car on the way" "Your call" said his boss "It will be your loss Cos if you don't show up you'll get no pay"... Revenge is mine thought Mario for sure Got a bucket of muck from the sewer And at the works gate Mario did wait As his boss drove out, he threw the manure... Written 13th June 2020.

Well, Mario showed his boss, didn't he? You write great limericks, Tom. This one would have placed higher, but the second line in verse three has an extra syllable. Enjoyed the humor! Congrats on your placement in the contest. Hugs, Carolyn

Hello Tom … reminds me a time when revenge was a bunch of flowers placed on a car engine. It creates an odour that has a worrying affect on the victim - thanks Tom for the grin - Lindsay
