The Florid Speaker (limerick)

Updated on August 6, 2012

Thank God with a voice he was blessed

His words they would flow with the best

Our thoughts turned to flowers

And warm winter showers

He rambled for hours this pest

      Gee, that looks like the last meeting I was in where I used to work!

      Too funny - the picture is perfect with the words, as usual.

      Voted up.

      Then, I would do the same if I had to endure for hours, too.

      So few words yet so funny. Wish I could do something like this. Maybe I'll give it a shot someday.

      some would say this sounds like me.. I'm rather boring because I often go on "repeat" or just talk about boring stuff lol.. but mostly this might would remind me of college teachers.. if not for doing online courses :P , or a boss at work :/

      funny stuff... but in real life not so funny but more annoying than anything.

      I find myself looking forward every evening to you limericks. Many have tried but you, my friend, are the best I have read.
