Vacation Disaster

We arrived at the airport quite late My passport was months out of date My husband was snappy The baby filled its nappy I just stood there and got quite irate The pilot had been on the pop On the runway he couldn't stop He just missed a tree Stopped off for a pee Now his career is facing the chop Our hotel was two star not four Cockroaches crawled on the floor We got a terrible fright In the middle of the night A tornado blew off our door Written for Vacation Humor Contest Sponsored By Carolyn Devonshire 07~23~14

This was one that had almost perfect meter and rhyme and was very good limerick writing. Congrats on your win. It was also funny, like a good limerick series should be!

Well done, my friends! But for some syllable counts the poem would have placed higher. Had a great laugh reading it. Congratulations! Love to both of you, Carolyn
