Looking Askance (Limerick)

Looking Askance (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A woman was looking askance
At a hoofer she spotted by chance.
He danced by the book.
So why the odd look?
The fellow was wearing no pants.

UPDATE: Happy International Dance Day! (April 29th)

    Did this happen in my fair city of San Francisco? Every now and then, not everyday, only when it’s really hot, we see various states of undress. Some top, some down, some both (or should I say nothing at all). Sure, we look but no one ever fusses…

    A senior was looking askance
    as social security might not advance
    she called up her senator
    AARP sent 100,000 more
    and demanded they get out of their trance

    Boehner was looking askance
    when his reductions would not advance
    in the senate they anounced
    the cuts to be bounced
    it never had much of a chance

    Belinda, I made this tale up, though I’m sure it’s happened any number of times. :) Thanks Tracy for your verse and thanks everyone for your fun comments.
