Treasure Island

Valsa George


On a hill top, there lived a man so stingy
Though wealthy, his house was so dingy
Whenever his wife asked for money
He would chortle- ‘No Honey'
Fed up, she rode away with a stranger on a pony

    A beautiful poem in limerick form, enjoyed thoroughly. A stingy man being in dingy is supposed to be lonely... very true. Ha Ha Ha. (Report) Reply

    A stingy, dirty, selfish, lazy man deserve to be alone. Unless the wife was the catalyst that brought him into this state of being. Even still 2 wrongs don't make a right but they do make for a good write. I enjoyed this limerick =) (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem Valsa. I think there can be nothing better rather than sitting and crying. She is quiet practical. Loved it. (Report) Reply

    She escaped with her' lover'... so she had a lover even earlier! Is it an escape? (Report) Reply

Far south the lift,
