Here’s today’s entry for my self-imposed Limerick-A-Day Challenge. Happy Wednesday the 13th.
Because triskaidekaphobes fear
The number 13, they steer clear
Of building floors numbered
Or Fridays encumbered
With digits like these when they’re near.
For me, though, thirteen isn’t scary;
It’s of people who are that I’m wary.
If you’ve met just one teen
Then you get what I mean:
So much drama, it’s scary — very.

Typically clever work. However, the last line in the second limerick needs another beat, don’t you think?
How about: “Of their drama so scary, I’m chary.”
Or: “My two daughters are scary contrary.”
Maybe: “Endless drama, and common sense nary.”
Hmmm: “Psychological rigging is jerry.”
