A Play(n) In Words (limerick)

The rich woman she went insane

For she never traveled in plane

As her eyes I dried

Take wisdom abide

Think fancy I tried to explain

I'm with you, Shauna. Maybe it is something in this Florida water!

It is going to look really badly when Martin has to start adding an

explanation clause in his limericks. Ha, Ha

I can sympathize, I don't like planes either! Don't mind the ride but taking off and landing..vital parts of the ride.

Voted up and funny my friend.
