Employee Blues

Employee Blues
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A hard-working woman named May
Was employed at a very low pay.
And to make matters worse,
Her boss stole her purse.
How is that for bad fortune! Oy Vey!

Feel free to write your own limerick using the same first line and post it in my comments. And if you’re on Facebook, please join my friends in that same activity in my limerick-offs.

  1. A hard-working woman named May,
    Who read Maureen Dowd every day:
    “Eighty cents of the dollar?
    About *that* I will holler —
    Not ‘identity,’ but equal pay!”

    A hard-working woman named May
    Decided to ‘cycle her way.
    Continental Divide,
    Not too far, not too wide:
    This trip lasted many a day.

    You never fail to elicit a snort and laugh from me Mad! I think I’ve been that woman waaaay too many times. ;)

    A hard-working woman named May,
    With two jobs and a 401K,
    Still could not make ends meet,
    Though the bankers live sweet
    On her dime. Bail her out? Not today!

    (A late entry, and not as clever as the one from Doug, whom I would declare the winner of this limerick-off. But I at least wanted to show up for this one…) — S
