What Do Boys And Coconuts Have In Common (limerick)

Updated on June 14, 2012

If monkeys can swing in a tree

The lad thought well why couldn’t he

So he swung around

Till answer was found

When skull hit the ground he could see




For those who like 100 laughs

“Well That Was That”; The Poetry of Martin Kloess is now available at
