A Limerick for you.

     THE NOSEY OLD LADY

 

The nosey old lady was drunk . . .

At the zoo, she learned more than she thunk..

She showed no fear,

Pinched an elephant’s ear,                         

And he snorted her up his trunk.

But not when it’s on my chin

But a lummox still tried

So the Hostess replied,

“Well, I guess there’s room for one bore”

We all feared we’d choke

She’d baked the darn thing upside down

Written for good friend, Alice Kordich, after

     she did this twice.

A Limerick for your morning

        PARENTAL ABUSE

 

Poor Mother was out of their league

When the kids were bent on intrigue

She broke into tears

And covered her ears

Suffering from tattle fatigue
