I Kissed A Job Goodbye (limerick)

My business was down was sad truth

I lost job to one with more youth

Released without care

For all I did there

My job at the fair’s kissing booth

It seems, dear Martin, that your kisses lacked punch

For those who make up the under-thirty bunch.

Great fun, especially the punch-line. I telephoned my daughter to tell her one of your funnies and she loved it, too.

Here you go again making people think. That was really different, and as always different is good in my eyes, I like the catchy flow and the word choice .Thanks for this perspective.
