My Mighty Roar (limerick)

It’s my house came my mighty roar

No one bosses me anymore

For beneath my dome

My will’s free to roam

Till wife returns home from the store

I feel the power when I am in the shower.When I come out she reminds me I"m gettting the floor all wet.Then I go back in to the shower.Wait and hour and come back out I am a prune.She says where have you been I have been looking all over for you.I need help.You can't stay in the shower for ever but every night I get the power back just before bed.Then I can tell myself in my sleep I am king of the house.Sure I am.Until she says do you know you talk in your sleep.No I didn't know.What did I say.Thinking I could of said something I shouldn't of.Something about a mouse.Go away mouse there is no mouse in this house.If she only knew.Loved your hub and so funny and true.
