50 + 50 = 100 Right? (limerick)

A custom which often occurs

When marriage makes men hang up spurs

When dividing chest

Of wealth in love’s nest

There’s ours and the rest of it’s hers




For those who like 100 laughs

I remember one customer showed up to my store and asked this question.

"Can I add this 50% on this product label to the 50% on the display together be free? "

I wanted to laugh out loud but I could not. FML.

My husband and I have had this discussions many times over the years. I keep telling him if he had more stuff I would give him more room. Can't say fairer than that.

Voted you funny. All of your poetry and limericks are wonderful and some are quite entertaining as this one is. Incidentally, I've always had my own closet. ;)

I'm pleased to see this one was short, not because there was anything wrong with it. It was lovely as are all of your works, but I had this bad experience at the university regarding poetry just a few years ago, and I promised myself I would never again read another poem so long as I lived once out of that class.

That decision was/is not a reflection on yours or any other poet's work. It is the result of an instructor whose specialty and favorite thing was poetry. I did well in the class and got my A, but it was just somehow tedious to analyze poems that were in some cases pages long and written a hundred years ago, give or take a little. When I enrolled in the class I was expecting mostly prose. Turned out to be occasional prose and mostly poetry.

Anyway, very much enjoyed this limerick.
