Limerick - Pool Clutter
Poolside to poolside joy!
Great place for a game of catch!
For any of the words I might stutter
On the subject of simple pool clutter,
The fact still remains
That if I had brains’
I’d get there before the noise utters.
The kids love to swim,
It’s not just a whim.
Their balls they bring with them to play.
with splashes, and shouting so gay.
No wonder they’re trim.
As for me “the old duffer“,
It seems sure I must suffer,
If swimming is part of my day.
“Capacity 1, 1, 7” Say!
With so many bodies, I'd best be tougher.
Body to body, cheek to jowl;
“I’ve got you; now, so just you howl!”
At least I got myself wet,
Though I haven’t swum yet.
Climb out and throw in the towel.

Kids aren't the only ones who howl!

Some people are like dogs in that we wonder sometimes why we ever taught them to speak!
