He “Nose” The Woes Of Egos (limerick)

Updated on September 9, 2013

His ego was so hard to tame

He boasted he’s destined for fame

As his boasting rose

His friends turned to foes

And punches in nose bore his name

      Some people do tend to think too obnoxiously well of themselves. Often it is the person with the least to crow about.

      This extremely nosy fellow does not have to fight back,
