Terror By Light (limerick)

Unsure of what would happen next

By horror this woman was vexed

Such anguish was born

Will damsel see morn

Those pages were torn from book’s text

Dammit...I hate it when that happens! Debbie didn't think it was funny? Now I'm concerned....maybe my warped sense of humor has overcome me.

I'm blessed. That's never happened to me. Of course, when I learn how to read I may find it happening! Great Job!

Ha. I may have misinterpreted, as I thought it funny about terror by "light." Ha, especially after having the subject of light coming up so much lately. Ha. I am with billybuc, as I thought it was funny, so I may be warped too. Plus I thought a limerick is supposed to be funny. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Bahh! I've had that happen once... I was impossible to be around until a new copy arrived in the mail. ^_^ My husband always checks my books to make sure they're complete now. Voted up!
