Say What (limerick)

Updated on February 5, 2016

One day my wife said we were through

I didn’t quite know what to do

I sought friend of old

My woes to unfold

He said she had told him that too

      If you had spoken to your old friend before you were wed,

      You never would have ended up I think with her in your bed.

      Mh-

      Nice twist. Obviously she'd made the rounds, at least that's the way that it sounds, even in dark, down in the park, her scent drew the barks of the hounds. Later, my friend!
