Limerick of The Old Couple Shopping
They who laugh last, laugh best!
When they went into town for their shopping,
there was also a cop "parking hopping"
the meter said "Expired."
His duty sense fired,
he proceeded with his ticketing fuss.
The couple soon appeared,
said a ticket was to be feared,
and couldn't he just "have a heart?"
"tear the ticket apart,
and be kind to old folks such as us?"
He showed no remorse,
wrote another ticket, of course,
saying "bald tires won't do"
then added a few,
"To the growing fines he's intending for us?"
The more that he wrote,
the old wife taking note,
with apparent disdain,
as it started to rain,
the couple went home on their bus!
Moral of the story: old folks need to make their own exciting days.
