repeat performance

A man from Nebraska, called Wayne, Found speaking in public a strain. He stammered and stuttered, The audience muttered; 'A pain? You can say that again!' * 18.07.19 * pronunciation of again has two variations. I'm using the one rhyming with 'rain' (audio link for 'again' - third pronunciation : https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/again) State Limerick Poetry Contest : sponsored by Kevin Shaw

Oh that's good,Jan. I know that both variations are used in the UK and I believe in the USA too. I hope they also share the idiom in the last line linking in with the stammer or it will fall flat!
