Terror By Light (limerick)

Updated on August 30, 2012

Unsure of what would happen next

By horror this woman was vexed

Such anguish was born

Will damsel see morn

Those pages were torn from book’s text

      I didn't know what happened at the end of 'Brave New World' for two years for this very reason! Bah Humbug to the library book vandals!

      Bahh! I've had that happen once... I was impossible to be around until a new copy arrived in the mail. ^_^ My husband always checks my books to make sure they're complete now. Voted up!

      Great limerick. That kind of book would drive me off the wall if i couldn't find out what happened.

      Ha. I may have misinterpreted, as I thought it funny about terror by "light." Ha, especially after having the subject of light coming up so much lately. Ha. I am with billybuc, as I thought it was funny, so I may be warped too. Plus I thought a limerick is supposed to be funny. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      I'm blessed. That's never happened to me. Of course, when I learn how to read I may find it happening! Great Job!

      Dammit...I hate it when that happens! Debbie didn't think it was funny? Now I'm concerned....maybe my warped sense of humor has overcome me.
