The Legacy (limerick)

Updated on September 9, 2012

This legacy of simple guy

Who once told his wife little lie

And though he’s now still

And buried on hill

That lie he told will never die

      That is life... after life. We are remembered for what we did or did not so. Nice ink.

      I can see some lies that wouldn't go away. Like infidelity that led to an incurable disease. Kind of not a funny situation when you think about it like that.

      mhatter99 You are so right...the lie lives on and sometimes it takes on a new life of its own. You know those nasty little lies sometimes grow and change.

      The difference is always in who is measuring the size of the lie; therein lies the rub! Great as always!
