A Limerick On The 4th of July, et als.

The 4th of July Swap

When fireworks started their popping,

And grandfather wished they were stopping,

The neighbor next door

fired off many more,

And led patriotic Grandma to swapping.

Food Skills....

There once was a man from New York

who couldn't eat food with a fork.

He tried and he tried,

'til finally he died,

While using chopsticks to eat some pork.

Clover Luck....

For years and years turned over,

Children work to find the right clover.

It must have four leaves

Or their little heart grieves.

The "good luck" was finding that clover.

Quick Thinking....

If stumped by a question

gives you indigestion,

a thought I would like to propose,

for just such a case as those,

"I don't know, but here's my suggestion."

Mental Exercise....

For the frolic and play

of a great childhood day,

you might try and recover the charm

without letting you do too much harm.

Just relive that memory, don't play.

Looking For The Waitress....

There once was a waitress of skill,

for whose looks most women would kill.

Her wiggling hips,

Insured big tips,

But you still got stuck with the bill.

Not exactly Farmer Bill....

Aeson Pidlan Poe

as a gardener was quite slow.

His crops were late planted,

and withered when he ranted,

but still they knew just how to grow.

Wanted: A Mate....

For years he had searched for a mate.

Then, thinking it might be too late,

He went to the store;

saw one to adore,

later cursing his sorry, sad fate.

(She was just shopping for a rich husband!)

Ericdierker - I'm not sure any reach the "Great work" plateau with no "Awesome" checked, but I will settle for your sincere appreciation. :o)

AliciaC - Making things "enjoyable" is a writer's worthy task, especially for limericks. Thanks.

MizBejabbers - Looks as if I hit some of your buttons, and that's great!
