Gertrude's Stew (limerick)

Updated on August 14, 2013

It's almost like a witches brew.

Would not eat it if I were you.

How badly it stunk!

Like a pile of junk.

Smells like rotten beef and old shoe!

      Well, I certainly appreciate at that and sometimes I think people are put in front of us for a reason... in a community as large as this one, finding you is like finding a needle in a haystack, but I found you, didn't I? :D ... I just read that other hub of yours and it's fantabulous!

      Hi Shanmarie,

      Thanks again for stopping by and commenting. No I don't Gertrude personally, she's completely fictional.

      Hi Cat,

      I'm glad I could bring some laughter to your day. It's just amazing how special you are to us here. I was bored at times. My output has slowed down the last couple of weeks, but I have a very serious poem I wrote 2 weeks ago.

      Nice rhyme although any stew I ever made had people cut up into it like Sweeny Todd ,lol lol, and I'm not talking about my personal life but a couple of pieces I've written at the Hub over the years with a variation on that theme.

      Always love your wit and good humor and I will post and link on my FACEBOOK page your funny words here.

      Sending to you a big high five from two human hands and 4 furried paws at lake erie time 3:34pm
