Telecommuting Limerick

Telecommuting Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A fellow who telecommuted
Had a short trip to work — undisputed.
His bed and PC
Were as close as can be.
Yet his tardiness got the guy booted.

    A fellow who telecomuted,
    responding calls were executed
    by robo calls he had made
    so he was double paid
    by work where he then commuted.

  2. LOLOLOL Made me laugh out loud! Thank YOU~! :)

    OK. Can’t resist. So here goes.

    Telecommuting is gratefully cheap.
    And a handsome profit we’re sure to reap.
    With the price of gas so stubbornly steep
    Sales will slow to a skimpy creep
    Making oil companies certain to weep.

    A fellow who telecommuted
    Was doubly fast when he tweeted
    Thumb worked on the HP
    Crossed the road in a jiffy
    Pall bearers later had him hoisted

    When I grow up (if I do) can I please write great fun lymericks too?

    Please forgive — I never could get the hang of spelling lymerick.

    Now if we could just learn to telecommute blue collar work, that would be cool!
