A Short Poem: The Friendly Trouser Snake


Passion rose she could not ignore

Her hopes ran high at last a score

On it grew out of sight

Gave her an awful fright

She held on tight dared not let go

      phdast7, I've only recently started fooling around with Limericks, and surprise surprise, I thoroughly enjoy writing them. I don't know that I'd call myself a Limericist, but thanks a million for the lovely comment, very much appreciated.
