No Pain, No Gain

No Pain, No Gain I once knew a poet named Dick Too sensitive to take the stick So hurt was his pride He cried and he cried Till he grew a skin ever so thick

From eloquent verse I can tell Richard has grown up quite well Restored is his pride With words by his side and poetry ever so swell! :)

Hola Richard, I can't believe I'm so late reading every entry on the GLASS COMMUNITY contest list. That's very lame of me, :) I was the one who initiated this contest. But, with the moving and all, I asked my sis to close it for me. I like your placement in this contest. :) Congratulations on your awesome Sensitive community Limerick win. --Love Linda--

I feel a little guilty with my reply now lol, but as this is for PDs sensitivity contest it is apt. Some here are very sensitive about everything so being discreet is the way to go

Funny, Richard! I'm really liking these zany "sensitive limericks". I hope your skin is thick enough, because I'm about to go Grammar Nazi on you ... The "too" before "sensitive" should have a double-o. Lol. Good luck on the contest.

Hi Tim, no worries my skin is plenty thick enough, let's see how thick your layers are, because I'm about to go Gestapo etiquette ( a code of behavior that delineates expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group) on you ... It's customary to notify people of mistakes through soupmail, instead of making them look prize tits in public lol. but thank you anyway

No one wants to be a Dick. Nothing worse than a Dick in pain. This one is funny Richard.
