O'Tooles Apprentice

There was a plumber called Billy O'Toole
Hired a dimwit who turned out quite a fool
Soil pipe he didn't secure
There was a stench of manure
And all the downstairs became a cesspool.

The owner came back and said" whats that smell? "
By his face he was angry you could tell
The dimwit ran for the door 
But then skidded on the floor 
And face down into raw sewage he fell.

That’s poetic justice in action Tom. Good fun. O’Toole needs to check his tools. LOL. SuZ

We all have some misfortunes one way or another. That's life and a very funny one it is. ~~

Oh my goodness - Other than falling into the stuff, this actual thing happened to me!! It was horrendous! Kitchen fitter left for the night, forgot to reconnect the soil pipe - poo on my kitchen floor! Aghaghagh!! So thanks for reminding me of that Tom lol!

Hi Tom - Sounds as though Billy would be more suited to driving the muckspreader in a Farmer's' field. This is a certain contender in the comp. Best wishes - Bill

Lol! Tom, Perhaps his apprentice got his training from a scam school online. Best wishes in the contest. Have a wonderful day my friend:-) Alexis

He needs more training. A fun read, Tom--you are a master of this form.

Silly Billy could've prevented the stench if he'd used the right wrench instead of being so willy nilly. Love your limericks, Tom!

I so much enjoyed and liked your Limerick, Tom! So funny! So meaningful! And an outshining win! I hope you are doing great! My deepest regards and blessings.
