The Good Neighbor (limerick)

Updated on July 21, 2013

When my neighbor asked this of me

To help get her cat out of tree

I just wasn’t sure

If screams I’d endure

‘cause I was a poor shot you see

      Funny. Like a Haiku and thought-provoking. Don't write too many of these.

      Where or where do you get your ideas? Though I am an animal lover I still appreciate the humor in this and found myself laughing out loud!
