The Florid Speaker (limerick)

Thank God with a voice he was blessed

His words they would flow with the best

Our thoughts turned to flowers

And warm winter showers

He rambled for hours this pest

I find myself looking forward every evening to you limericks. Many have tried but you, my friend, are the best I have read.

I am laughing at your wit in this limerick. I have been there many times.. only wish I could have fallen asleep too. Keep them coming -- so enjoy reading them.

some would say this sounds like me.. I'm rather boring because I often go on "repeat" or just talk about boring stuff lol.. but mostly this might would remind me of college teachers.. if not for doing online courses :P , or a boss at work :/

funny stuff... but in real life not so funny but more annoying than anything.

So few words yet so funny. Wish I could do something like this. Maybe I'll give it a shot someday.
