Limerick - Tips

Branches of the same tree....

Dads sometimes try to live their lives over again through their advice to their sons.

Tips


I once was a carefree lad,

taking tips galore from my dad.

But if I'd had a brother

he'd have listened to our mother,

I'd have warned him to do so, or be sad.

For everything there is a time and a season....

Sage advice for just half the price.

Startled


One startling thing I've learned

from countless loves that were spurned:

when the chick is real hot,

you'd best touch her not,

or you're the one that gets burned!

The Sneaky Limerick

I love a sneaky limerick.

It tickles my moving tongue.

It hides the crucial stick,

Then taps you with some fun.

RachaelOhalloran - I think you like it because it is advice you gave your sons as their mother! Happy Mother's Day.

Very good humor in limerick form. You might ought to listen to Mama, too!

Great humor. Love that second one. I remember someone once said you won't listen now, you'll think you're better and then one day you'll know what could have been different had you listened.

It's a good thing I gave everyone the choice of two limericks, as the second one is the one with the high grades!

aviannovice - did your town's name come from the water being still, or from the still being water?
