The “Passing” Of Grandma Beth (limerick)

This loss brought on tear filled display

Our rich grandma Beth passed away

Though we’d never switch her

Such dreams we would ditch there

For her cats got richer that day

Poor little old lady. The cats were probably the only ones who could stand to be around her for long. Hee, hee. Too cute as usual. Voted up and funny.

Thank you, Martin, for explaining that ...

Was the origin of the phrase: 'fat cat.'

I am just wondering if the cats mourned her passing.

Martin, you really should put all your limericks into a book! They'd give hours of laughter to many people. so would your lovely poems, now I think about it.
