What Will I Be When I Grow Up?

What Will I Be When I Grow Up?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Ev’ry decade I change my career.
The first used my musical ear.
I tried lawyering second,
Till humor scribe beckoned.
What’s next? I just can’t wait to hear.

    Limericks are always fun. The last line is always like the prize in a box of Cracker Jack – lots of anticipation and then the payoff. Thanks!

    :-) It was a great relief when I finally realized I wasn’t going to grow up at all, & so didn’t need to worry about it.

  16. I like your wonderful sense of humor and I love the hat. I am a hat person as well. They give me a sense of style that nothing else can achieve.
