Why I Can’t Have Kids (limerick)

Updated on June 4, 2013

No matter how hard I might try

No babies said doctor with sigh

For things that I lacked

Barred me from this act

And there was the fact I’m a guy

      Guys can have kids, they just can't give birth. LOL. I think somehow the male species lucked out on that one.

      Ha!Ha! You have a very distinct humour;very good.It kind of reminds me a little of that film called 'Junior' that Arnold Schwarzenegger was in, about twenty years' ago, being like a photo negative of your limerick.
