The Cleansing (limerick)

Updated on September 8, 2013

The souls of the brave men would cower

In hopes of some shelter they’d scour

And church bells would ring

Some mercy to bring

Whenever I’d sing in the shower

      It sounds like your voice

      Has power and class.

      Bet you could use it

      To break any glass!
