View from the coffee shop - a limerick

With haste he got out of his bed

On foot to his workplace he sped

And yet all he found

Was the snow on the ground

Sent him base over apex instead!


Now, of course, I made sure he was okay before I took to writing about him....

"Watch your step" takes on a whole different meaning in weather like that. Fun writing but I suspect not so fun for that gentleman. :)

@billybuc Not fun at all by the looks of things, but he got up and walked off albeit a lot slower!

@Jodah - I too love true limericks. They are easy to mess up and ruin. I really enjoy writing them, so thanks for your kind words.

hello,I just wished to write to say how much I've enjeoyd reading your site. I am part cherokee on my mother's side and my sister is half blackfoot on her father's side. we are half sisters actually as you can see. but anyway I love anything and everything to do with the Native American culture. I also have a friend who is always looking for new info on this as well and I am having a problem with finding information about her birth totem. Her birthday is September 13 If you could help me I'd be grateful as I say she loves Native American stuff as I do. Also I noticed you do crafts. I do too and am looking for a crochet pattern for a native american girl dress to do for a project I'm working on. If you may have any ideas or could help in any way I'd be grateful. Sorry if I've rambled I take medication due to a serious ailment which has left me bedbound. Thanks again for any and all help!!!!
