Life Kept Me On My Feet (limerick)

Updated on May 24, 2013

I never missed one single beat

As kid who life’s lessons would meet

And oh how I’d croon

To acts of baboon

And dad taught new tune to my seat

      I put a plate in my pants once, and my father felt it worse than I did.

      Loved the enclosed photo of the apron on your dad,

      Spanking you proudly may be the most fun he's ever had.

      Somehow I made it through childhood without a spanking...mainly because my dad scared the hell out of me and I didn't want him made enough to hit me. LOL
