Strange Goings On (limerick)

Updated on January 30, 2015

Alerted by a ghastly sound

And all of the dead things on ground

Strange winds now contest

It’s then I confessed

My wife makes the best beans around

      Oh, Martin. Work has been so demanding these past few weeks, leaving me feeling a bit burned out of late. So I clicked open your limerick with such anticipation. I am now smiling…it’s always the last line of your limericks that tweak the mind and the heart. How very funny endearing! Thank you! :-)

      Really cute but I have to tell you "a tad of baking soda in the pot would wreak havoc on your poem .

      You should read the one I wrote on beans n beer.

      thanks for the laugh.
