I Did Ask For Some Change (limerick)

Updated on July 27, 2013

As beggar I asked man for change

For a long while he looked at me strange

But as he’d proceed

I shouted no need

As my clothing he’d rearrange

      Should have picked his words more carefully.

      The poor guy's request was terrific
