A Miracle (limerick)

His demise was not far away

He told doctor he could not pay

The doctor was wise

His charts re-apprise

He put the demise on delay

LOL This is a good one. Actually in this case we should all say we cannot pay. Works better that way.

Maybe it is better to skip the visit. That wouldn't make much of a limerick, though. Never mind.

I'd forgotten how much I used to enjoy these little five liners. Someone once gave me a small book of limericks when I was in my teens, the poems always managed to lift me up when I was feeling down.

Loved this. Voting up

What a lovely and uplifting limerick! I love limericks and when I taught I used to do a lesson on limerick writing. They are so fun and funny to write. Great job!

Funny. If it were true I'm sure that most folks would ask the doctors to use their god-like powers and put them on hold.

Excellent. It is better to prolong the demise in order to be paid.
