The Open And Shut Case (limerick)

Updated on June 6, 2012

Asked didn’t you use common sense

By victims of the man’s offense

Oh yes the man swore

As proof even more

Showed maniacs for his defense

      Mhatter99, A thought inspiring limerick! Our defense is often viewed as madness. One flew... has been one of my favorites, time to see it again. Thanks again.
