532 : The Secret Fertilizer


Mad Kane has a regular limerick challenge.
She provides the first line,
the rest is up to us.

The Secret Fertilizer

A woman was holding a rose
And the prize that it won in the shows.
And no-one suspected
Her success was connected
With the spot where she buried her beaus.
