Maybe If They Didn’t Cry So Much (limerick)

Updated on June 20, 2012

They cried for their dead uncle Bill

They cried at the reading of will

They cried woe is me

They cried could it be

They cried because he left them nil




Jokes, for those who like 100 laughs

      This is so funny. Sadly, it does happen at some funerals. Love your poetic talent.
