Dear Driver (Limerick)

Dear Driver (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear driver, here’s crucial advice
That I hope I won’t have to say twice:
It’s best not to drive
Wearing skates. You won’t thrive,
Cuz you’re skating on very thin ice.

This limerick was inspired by this news item about a Canadian fellow charged with driving through a red light. He was on his way to a rink and had been driving while wearing ice hockey skates:

Driving with skates “is probably not very safe” because the motorist has limited contact with the brake and gas pedals, said Staff Sgt. Ken Hruska.

    cute. I hope, as well, that it is advice you’d only need give once—though preferably not at all.

    I wouldn’t have guessed this really happened. Snappy Limerick!

    Hey Madeleine – they are all great – this one is no exception. I am lucky to avoid cars when I can! Though I am upstate increasingly so can’t.

    I thought your Koch one wonderful. I have mixed feelings re Koch- though of course I liked much about him and voted for him! But he just brought certain New Yorkers of his generation to mind as well so focused on that – k.
