The Bullfighter (limerick)

No greater bullfighter you’ll see

I’ll stand brave and I’ll never flee

And each deadly stare

I’ll meet with such flare

As salesmen lob their lies at me

A brave man indeed! I'm a little late tonight, but I couldn't go to bed without my laugh for the night. Thank you, Martin!

Yes, you nailed it, Martin, with this clever rhyme.

You are the greatest bullfighter of all time.
