Happy Limerick Day!

Yes, friends, in honor of Edward Lear, purveyor of the what could be the only fixed form of poetry indigenous to the English language – the limerick – I present to you a short quip that has nothing to do with the village of Nantucket:

    From work, I come home so beat

    My shoes, they’re now off my feet

    The puppies are barkin’

    My attention they’re harkin’

    I guess I’ll get them a treat!

Yes, the puppies always get a treat. I may be a curmudgeon and a sarcastic lout, but who could say no to a puppy like this…

Please, sir, may I have another....treat!

Happy Limerick Day!
