Be Afraid Be Very Afraid (limerick)

Updated on June 28, 2012

The widower returned to court

The spinsters all got the report

That he didn’t scoff

At favorite trough

Now he fights them off at his fort

      The guy looks like a combo of St. Patrick and Don Quixote!

      No reports whether the former ever had to fight off the ladies. The latter? He loved them.

      Good one, Mhatter.
