Ricky was the first to sell piles of wood He named them ricks, (stuck on himself somewhat) Also as many whole limbs as he could Limbs were cheaper, not needing to be cut A new poem type, a fellow would make But found naming it, his most daunting task By chance passed Ricky on a stroll he'd take And "Limb or rick?", he would hear Ricky ask!

Very good Pat. I love a good chuckle. I would have classified this poem as "Light Poetry". It sure enlightened me! Keep them coming!

Thanks Dean. Glad you liked it. You make a good point, and the pic doe's have a light in it!!! I guess I'm a little better at concocting imaginary origins than naming them!!............80)

Obsessively counting syllables in my head came out as limb or rick! 1,2 3. Hmmmmm......interesting maybe that could be a poem. Inside my head is a scary place to be!!.........80)
