Limerick Rut

Limerick Rut
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A woman was stuck in a rut.
She’d tripped, falling down on her butt.
She was wedged in so tight,
She might be there all night.
Seems its risky to text while you strut.

    ha, yes it is, remember the girl that fell down the man hole?

  2. Ha, ha! And the girl who fell into the mall fountain as she was texting with glee.

    And remember Tom Hanks in The Money Pit? He was wedged tight as I recall. Time to watch it again, funny movie as I recall.

    Serves her right!

  4. It is rarely that I write a limerick, but this one popped into my head over xmas and I thought I’d send it to you, even though it doesnt use your first line. Merry Christmas, kiddo.

    There was a young lad, a Berliner,
    who kept getting thinner and thinner.
    He said, “Mother Dear,
    it’s abundantly clear,
    you must cook something nicer
    for dinner.”

    Perfect! WWT —is it a crime yet? I guess the falling on the butt is punishment enough!

    Thanks for the laugh. I can always count on your work. Can’t walk and text any more than you can drive if you want to be safe.

    A fellow, a tad oversexed,
    Was distracted while starting to text,
    By the sight of a gal
    In a rut, nay, corral.
    Drove his car up the curb. Guess what’s next?

    Fun limerick, Bob!
