CCCLVIII - A Mistake

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

A fellow had made a mistake
And wed a young girl on the ‘make’
Though she left him quite poor
What annoyed him much more
Was that even her breasts had been fake.

  1. Ha! Good one, this. Me like lots!

  2. Loved your limerick on Mad Kane, which is on this one too, but with a great photo of you and your girlfriend :)

  3. Just love it! A great little limerick.

  4. On second thought, perhaps there are no mistakes. Perhaps there are only "do" and "learn."

    But what does a Bear know? Really?

  5. Rob-bear: a deeper question than a mere limerick writer can handle!

  6. I've been told breasts are breasts ...! In other words, they all are great. No deep themes here? Methinks thou art being falsely modest ...


  7. Breasts are great, no doubt about that!

    But there is nothing autobiographical in this limerick - 'grew' from the prompt, nothing more! :-P

  8. I think I'm being misunderstood all around tonight !! No, I found no deep theme in THIS particular limerick. Only observing that yes, on occasion, you do tackle deeper topics in your work. It was a general observation - not poem specific.


  9. I do, I do. I try not to be a 'one trick pony'! :-)

  10. There once was a bombshell named Brynne
    Who caused dear old Geoffrey much chagrin
    It was not by the threat of making him poor
    In fact he kept urging her for more, more, more
    But because Brynne hadn’t divulged she had a twin


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
