The Dark Unknown (limerick)

Three search parties all share his curse

The lost unknown they now traverse

What darkness they crossed

Abandoning cost

To find husband lost in wife’s purse

Lol! Love it! When my husband wants something from my purse, he brings it over to me. If I ask him to find something for me, he will look and can't find it. It takes me a couple of seconds. But, I do need to clean it out now and then.

Loved this!

Voted up.

Miss your poems.

Going into a woman's purse is a no-no (and can be embarrasing, too!).

Love your limerick, Martin, here is my two-liner response:

Man who search in his wife's purse,

Will soon need doctor and a nurse.
