Limerick.1/The Well


The Well

I went to the well
Then in I fell
Had some water to drink
Hope I don't sink
Oh well! Who will tell?

    Hope, from the well you'll soon be out
    If with all your might, you shout
    People, then may hear!
    Is there no one here,
    To save our dear drowning friend, Pat?

    Enjoyed this limerick.... but sad that you are in such a trap! ! (Report) Reply
