Romance — A Foreign Concept? (Limerick)

Romance — A Foreign Concept?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“Instead of your long-winded rants,”
Says the gal, “I’d prefer some romance.”
Then her husband replies
With a glint in his eyes:
“Tell me, where do you think you are — France?”

(Inspired by the “Romance” prompt over at Totally Optional Prompts. And speaking of prompts, there’s still time to give my “bad jobs” prompt a try.)

    What a limerick. Just as I like ’em.

    Even though I think the French sense for romance tends to be overrated … just think of Pepe Le Piou :)
