Limerick: Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam

Limerick : Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam

Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam
Paid an urgent visit to a Grande-Dame*
She lifted the stuck log
During Pea-Souper smog
Damn ! Got carried down Grand-Dad Rapids – Wham !

* Dame : pronounced as in French

Poor Pappy

Believe me or not when I say my Pappy has had a rough day- Diaper soaking wet, how could he forget! I had to change it right away. So I dragged him in the bidet speechless I didn’t know what to say- "Oh, Pappy don’t fret," had a cigarette, burned his depends just yesterday! ***True story about my friends Pappy (grandpa)- he just couldn't break that darn smoking habit!*** Syllable count 8-8-5-5-8 January 26, 2017

Live Hard Die Young

Live hard and die young has gone awry
I lived hard but not enough to die
Aches and sprains
Arthritis pain
Live hard and die hard seems to apply!
