1033 - The One That Got Way.


Mad Kane poses a regular limerick challenge.
The key word this week is ‘wave’.


The One That Got Way.

There was an old sailor named Dave
Who’d never been near to a wave.
He just sat on the pier,
Drinking tankards of beer,
And boasting of the fish that he’d saved.

  1. and as he lay stonkard on the pier
    a wee lassie crawled up to his side
    she whispered sweet nothings in his ear
    he awoke with a gasp and a bride

  2. He Thought She Was Saying Hi (limerick)

    Oh hearken to tale of a knave
    Who couldn’t teach eyes to behave
    Soon spun at the neck
    Teeth hitting the deck
    As face was deflecting a wave

  4. Ha! Such fancies, as they can be pretty sad too if viewed from a different angle.
    Well-penned.
