Tips


I once was a carefree lad,

taking tips galore from my dad.

But if I'd had a brother

he'd have listened to our mother,

I'd have warned him to do so, or be sad.

For everything there is a time and a season....

Sage advice for just half the price.

Startled


One startling thing I've learned

from countless loves that were spurned:

when the chick is real hot,

you'd best touch her not,

or you're the one that gets burned!

The Sneaky Limerick

I love a sneaky limerick.

It tickles my moving tongue.

It hides the crucial stick,

Then taps you with some fun.


You and Limericks

How are you connected to limericks?

      RachaelOhalloran - I think you like it because it is advice you gave your sons as their mother! Happy Mother's Day.

      Great humor. Love that second one. I remember someone once said you won't listen now, you'll think you're better and then one day you'll know what could have been different had you listened.

      It's a good thing I gave everyone the choice of two limericks, as the second one is the one with the high grades!
