A lame-entable limerick for Danny Draper


There was a young twig from Kiama
who moved in a hoppity manner.
Thank pluck he survived
a truck-ulent dive
(but thank God he’s not singing Hosanna) .

    A funny limerick on Danny's present state! But he seems to enjoy his convalescence as a time to better woo his Muse!

    Enjoyed Diana! (Report) Reply

    What a positive lift for Danny, certainly giving him and us a good laugh. You express your expletives so so well.

    Pronunciation for Kiama is totally correct. I am now in a space boot as of yesterday for 8 weeks. Still can't find my spaceship. Oh such joy the slow recovery, but better than termination, for sure. Dianne, thank you for this Limerick, made me laugh. :) (Report) Reply

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
