Good one, Tom, congratulations on your fine limerick written to flow like only limericks can. Containing some food for thought, didn't know an elbow had three bones. I enjoyed it.

Well written Limerick form, Tom. While I do so love your rhyming poems, it's also great to see you branching out into different forms. Poetry Soup is a great learning tool for that. This is a great write. Good luck in the contest.

Years ago when I used to go out on delivery, I had a few tumbles' on the ice and snow before health and safety was invented lol. Now they tap info into a computer to see if its safe to go out or not. Tom
