Tale Of A Lifer (limerick)

Each night as I’d lay in my cell

My guard this cruel tale would retell

It’s theme never varied

My sentence there buried

Dear isn’t this married life swell

Ha, reminds me of that Meatloaf song . . . "Praying for the end of Time" I believe is the title.

Well, you certainly know how to make the best of any situation huh? :-) I don't suppose this sentence came as a result of hanging out in the women's showers? ;-)

You threw me for a loop on this one, as I didn't expect it. : ) Cute, but not sure I like the concept?? Voted it up anyway! Very funny.

No one ever promised you a rose garden,
