This Didn’t Really Happen – Really (limerick)

Updated on December 7, 2012

I shouted my tears formed a tide

The day that the T. V. set died

How could I face dawn

With best friend now gone

Just turn darn thing on my wife cried

      Funny, I wouldn't spread this around but I've done that! total panic, but was thankful I was alone in the house when I remembered I'd unplugged it to plug in the vacuum!

      Yeah - turning on the television may be effective,

      But it won't mean a thing if you dint pay the electric.
