Some Take It Harder Than Others (limerick)

Updated on August 23, 2012

That night came the wails Woe is me

My heaven has ended cried he

Gone is life’s gloss

Heavy the cross

He mourned for the loss of TV

      Mhatter, good humour. Very droll. Especially since I don't have tv (and I don't miss it). Regards, snakeslane

      This one can be taken two ways... a cry of the living or a cry from beyond. Interesting concept, I must say. Great job, my friend!
