Past Her Prime

A poetess well past her prime Had some trouble when writing a rhyme. Her limericks lagged And her readership sagged You could say it was really a …tragedy! June 30, 2013 for Heather's Make Me Laugh Contest

Ilene this is a lovely limerick. Tragic when a creative mind of a writer, artists, poet has lost the words, images, and thoughts to old age. Warm Smiles, Connie
