Mass Murderer

This limerick could be quite a chiller; as a movie would be a nice thriller. Who set fire to the wheat? Leaving stubble and heat - I hope they catch the cereal killer.

Good day, Lindsay. One must eat their Wheaties if they intend to catch the cereal killer. Hilarious!

Hello Panagiota … I gather you had a humorous 'groan' when you read this. Like a few others on this site, I enjoy playing with the English language - catch you soon Panagiota - Lindsay

Hello once again Connie … It is the style of poetry I prefer to write. An entertainer once told me to always leave people happier when they leave as to when they arrived. I do enjoy reading most forms of poetry though - thank you Connie - Lindsay

This is witty and clever Lindsay - the cereal killer! Well I guess not fun if you're the farmer! Great Limerick Lindsay. Hugs, Jennifer.
