The Golden Argument

The Golden Argument

We argued from way across the bar;
She slapped me, it wasn’t too hard;
Stepped out for a piss;
Then came back for a kiss;
But she was gone with my keys and car.

Walked around for about an hour;
She was home in her iv’ry tower;
I knew we were ‘bout through;
So I skipped to the loo;
But went home before it got sour.

We talked and argued ‘bout what we’d done;
And before long, it was nearly dawn;
Said I’d be right back,
My bladder was packed,
But pissed myself before I could run.


My first attempt at a narrative, story driven series of limericks. Was going for laughs... did it work?

Yes it did work indeed. The poem made me laugh and think about some of my past. :)

Please come check out some of my poetry, it isn't as comical as yours though.
