      Shakespears "Lend me your ear" will never be read the same! When she says "we need to talk" I will listen in the future. Thanks hatter, needed a laugh today!

      He'd listened to her wishes rich

      thought he's followed without a hitch

      found he was wrong

      no loving song

      When she wished she was quite the bitch.

      Great Job! My friend!

      If you were sitting here with me when I read your limerick, you would have heard me scream, just from the thought of the pain that husband must have felt from the tug his wife gave to his ear. As always - a lovely limerick with the perfect visual accompaniment.
