Some Take It Harder Than Others (limerick)

That night came the wails Woe is me

My heaven has ended cried he

Gone is life’s gloss

Heavy the cross

He mourned for the loss of TV

I was expecting something serious, MHatter, but you surprised me! I guess the image was deceiving :)

This one can be taken two ways... a cry of the living or a cry from beyond. Interesting concept, I must say. Great job, my friend!

LOL hilariously awesome! (coincidentally, yesterday my neighbors TV died from the direct lightning strike into our house antenna. RIP.)

Mhatter, good humour. Very droll. Especially since I don't have tv (and I don't miss it). Regards, snakeslane
