873 - Not the Girl Next Door

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: Quick, Raw and Sassy.

Mad Kane has a weekly limerick challenge.
She provides the rhyme word, the rest is up to us.
This week the word is ‘lease’.

So, combining the two, we get…

Not the Girl Next Door.

A harlot, a young sassy piece,
Saw her business quite quickly increase.
“The example I see
Is Airbnb—
It’s a rental and not a full lease.

The woman, well known to police,
When arrested, protested “Pul-leese,
As I’ve told you before,
I like to sleep in the raw;
The men are just visiting their 'niece'.

Like Jason and the Argonaut caprice,
Men look for the famed piece of fleece.
Their sweet offers to pay,
Make me invite them to stay
But those who slip in, I release.”

  2. Fools gold? if so, whose been fleeced!

  3. Such a clever and witty write :D

  4. Fun. A new twist on 'property is theft'.

  5. What a great laugh all the way through. Great rhyming here Cosmo.

  6. Chuckles! Wonderful limericks Cosmo! Like your humor any time!


  7. Ha... that AirBnB sounds just like the trick... just some additional service I reckon.

    I loved the second limerick in particular.
    Such a fun write.

  9. I love a good limerick. Even better to have three. The first is my favourite, for the wit.

  10. Like the others, I really liked the 'Airbnb' reference. Indeed a rental but not a full lease.

  11. well well just as limericks should your clever and witty way :)

  12. Grinning. Love the rhyming, and the Airbandb is brilliant.

    This is so funny.

  14. This is such an adroitly rendered, fun piece - my smile for the day.

  15. Love them all but especially the second - it brought big smiles to my face.
