Dad Died For This (limerick)

Updated on July 31, 2013

I asked mom why dad had to die

She said twas for you and for I

This dinner dispersed

In which we’re submersed

Dear dad was the first one to try

      Didn't the English kings have taste testers? If they died, the royal family wouldn't eat.

      Mom sure has a way with the cooking - perhaps take over the kitchen - or else...

      Dad was a martyr,

      Of that there's no doubt.

      From this moment on

      The others will eat out.
