Yet Another Limerick Ode To My Husband Mark Kane

Yet Another Limerick Ode To My Husband Mark Kane
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Oh, what have I done to my Mark:
Taught him limerick writing, and hark!
Now he’ll draft something new,
Then lug laptop to loo —
I can’t hide from his poetry arc.

(Note from Mad Kane: I’m really not making this up. On Sunday, Mark followed me into the bathroom, carrying his laptop. That’s how eager he was to show me his latest limerick.)

    Husbands–can’t live without them, can’t leave them by the side of the road, or however that goes…all this proves a limerick is a very dangerous thing.
