The Lucky Penny (limerick)

Updated on November 11, 2012

I picked up a penny for luck

When by glorious legs I was struck

My wife went insane

I tried to explain

Till penny in brain she did tuck

      I can't help it ... "Just your two cents worth, right?" Sorry, mh, I'm better than that, but what the hell, it's a penny's worth.

      Penny should be ashamed of herself for being so worthless and I bet his hand hurts.
