All sense of grace is outrun
Some, no doubt, sound extremely smutty!

    Hi Glen, I tried to post a reply to your message, but couldn't! I cannot post comments too.... some technical hassle...! I enjoyed your brother's limericks...! He is indeed gifted! Thank you for forwarding!

    OOPS! i almost accused you of using the incorrect # of 'syllables’. i was thinking of Haiku!
    Phe! Bri DOES make mistakes...sometimes! !

    After all, i AM (almost) human.

    Anything wrong (anything?) with " smutty" ***?

    *** " (of talk, writing, or pictures) obscene or lascivious."

    As many people, as many heads, as many likes,
    and as many poets and limericks...
    nice way of poking fun at gross ones.
