Ceaseless Impermanence (Limerick) - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Nothing has lasted forever, yet
Tho some may ask; "What about my debt? "
All kidding set aside
It is too hard to hide
The condition may never be met

    An oxymoronic title giving humor to a deep subject. Nothing can last forever because by definition, forever does not have an ending point

    Great one! But even debt cannot last forever, because we must die sometime. I believe death may be permanent in some cases! Ha Ha Ha Ha! Fortunately it wasn't in my case! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Debt can be inherited but is not permanent. the only thing that is permanent is impermanence

    Second line a little ragged but a limerick intact it is. Time to inject some humour in the name of entertainment. (Report) Reply

    I thought that the first line was a little rough. I am still working on it

    True, tho my intent was more about nothing being permanent and that being a permanent condition: -)

    I think I liked the title at least as much as the poem. Oxymoronic truth. : -)
