I Was Once The Greatest (limerick)

Updated on August 7, 2013

Each compliment this beauty shed

Sent waves of delight through my head

My future turned sunny

With dreams of this honey

Until all my money was bled

      Great laugh from this one.

      Got to watch out for those pretty young things.

      The young ones want your money.
