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!

    What a positive lift for Danny, certainly giving him and us a good laugh. You express your expletives so so well.
    I love it when you choose a poem to read and it brings a smile.

    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. :)
