How Pleasant To Know Old Man Kim

Rating: 5.0


It's so pleasant to know old man Kim.
There are very few people like him.
If you tell him he's funny,
would he give you some money?
The chances of that are quite slim.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM

Did you mean that you had added a self-promoting limerick of your own? If so, I couldn't find it! I love your other poems, though!

I repeat your two concluding lines: would he give you some money? The chances of that are quite slim. and I have added now with: and Kim has done his utmost best to the brim. Since he was born in a BANK? Amazing Limerick, Kim!

May I request Rob Lamberton to post his Limerick as a poem on HIS page, so that more of could read it. However, it does not qualify for THIS contest, for it needs to be "Self-Promoting"
