THE ADVENTURES OF JIM THE TRIM - IN AN ISLET

Jim, now rich, bought a wee li’l islet;
there he lived, with ten men and a starlet.
Changed his partner each day,
heaved and huffed till they say,
the islet is now, the town named Scarlet.





---------------------------------------------




The story's not over, he's not decadent.
Send away the men, he just simply can’t;
they built the town housing,
the roads and some building
for starlet Scarlet, whom the islet was meant.

Hello Kim : That is fantastic “.I'm on a holiday, sire. ” my Dear, hope it is some place exotic ???, besides your own country. This “ Joy and laughter prevents the angst from seeping in ” reads kind of ominous ???, Kim . I hope and pray that “ only light hearted writes come from my pen. ” come from other places as well and might also come to your heart !!! Bill .

G'day Kim... I'm beginning to wonder about the star in your limericks Kim. Is starlet Scarlet a decoy? Thanks Kim - Lindsay

Having read your last three gems, Kim, I see that you are still being very playful with the idiosyncrasies of man ( JIM THE TRIM ) . Bill .

Thank goodness, I was a little worried about Jim, but if he's with the scarlet starlet, well that's more my cup of tea. But just in case if I ever meet Jim and we have a drink, I will never say in front of him, "Bottoms up.".................See you soon Kim.....John
