Happy National Escape Day (Jan 30th) (Limerick)

So, is everyone ready for National Escape Day (January 30th)? I didn’t think so.

Here’s a limerick to celebrate, although I’m pretty sure this isn’t the sort of “escape” the holiday founders had in mind:

No Escape (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A felon was trying to run,
But his plan to escape was undone:
He tripped and he fell,
Tumbling into a well.
Never run while you’re under the gun.

    From his butt up to Superman’s nape
    From his shoulders the bright red folds drape.
    So the Kryptonite, green,
    Was too easily seen.
    Luthor’s strategem, foiled, in his cape.
