Stiffed (Limerick)

Stiffed (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A collector was conned by a scam;
His “antique” poker chips were a sham.
So he decked the old dealer
And called him a “stealer.”
Guess that’s one way to get a grand slam.

(Poetic Asides asks for antique poetry.)

  1. Wandering in the words on an early Sunday morning – I always come to that turn in the road that sparkles with laughter. This morning – another turn – another smile. Another thank you :)

    wandered in here late
    unkempt as is my usual state
    but dirt on my sleeve
    won’t cause you to leave
    me smacked into a funeral crate
