The Rocky Marriage

Shortly after I signed up with Mastodon (the Twitter replacement) I was invited to join a nice group of poets who use daily prompts to inspire haiku and other short verse. My inspiration for this limerick was the “fox” prompt:

Said a gal, as she tugged at her locks,
“My marriage to Rick’s on the rocks.
The last straw was last night:
We had a huge fight
Cuz he called our new neighbor a ‘fox’”

    Entrapped By Truth and Troth

    If declaring his neighbor a “fox”
    puts his marriage on perilous rocks,
    what is clear to Rick’s eye
    has him covet or lie
    as commandments in stone become pox.
