Limerick - Pool Clutter
Poolside to poolside joy!
Great place for a game of catch!
For any of the words I might stutter
On the subject of simple pool clutter,
The fact still remains
That if I had brains’
I’d get there before the noise utters.
The kids love to swim,
It’s not just a whim.
Their balls they bring with them to play.
with splashes, and shouting so gay.
No wonder they’re trim.
As for me “the old duffer“,
It seems sure I must suffer,
If swimming is part of my day.
“Capacity 1, 1, 7” Say!
With so many bodies, I'd best be tougher.
Body to body, cheek to jowl;
“I’ve got you; now, so just you howl!”
At least I got myself wet,
Though I haven’t swum yet.
Climb out and throw in the towel.
