and other Limericks
An underpaid daredevil, Dot,
From cannons afire, she was shot.
Her helmet, she’d clip
For aerial trip,
Until she forgot on the spot.
She climbed in the barrel that night,
Prepared for her regular flight.
The fuse, it was lit,
She cared not a whit,
Not knowing the end was in sight.
The crowds were amazed at the show,
Amused to see angels below.
On heavenly wing,
Dear Dot still may swing.
The ringleader claims it is so.
On the Bluff
There once was an agent quite tough,
Till this writer called his big bluff.
She turned on her heel
To catch a new deal –
And turned him to marshmallow fluff.
Dear spammers, I wish you’d take heed,
My mailbox, it bulges indeed.
Your offers and spiels
And uncanny deals
Reveal never value, but greed.
