Limerick.77. Mischievous Tom - Poem by Valsa George

Tom was too naughty, mischief, his joy
Neither his parents' pride nor others' envy
He would slyly pass
Break someone's window glass
It ended when one ‘handled' the boy!

    i won't comment on the 2nd line, as i don't understand the following (completely) which i copied from 'Google'. Google is a busy gal! ! ! ! .................
    The standard form of a limerick is a stanza of five lines, with the first, second and fifth rhyming with one another and having three feet of three syllables each; and the shorter third and fourth lines also rhyming with each other, but having only two feet of three syllables...................bri :)

    SO! i finally see how members take liberties with my good name when i'm not looking (see Loke's comment and your reply to it) . : (: (
    i was ONLY getting food for my poor family's table! yes, if i hit the fruit vendor enough times when he isn't looking, he runs, leaving all his fruit for me!

    I am sure he might have done such things and more! Nice identification, Loke

    Thats such a perfect picture of childhood. Mischief is the beauty of childhood however exasperating it may be. (Report) Reply

    Impishness is part of childhood, but learning right from wrong is also taught by consequences (Report) Reply

    Excellent Limerick! I liked the last line.
    It ended when one ‘handled' the boy!

    Little Tom, mischief, was his joy
    In his hands a sling shot his toy
    Rest is simple to read and enjoy.

    I never broke window glasses but was always naughty. Don't you think naughty children when grow up do what innocent and dull children can't. (Report) Reply

    Takes back to our boyhood, which was filled with lots and lots of similar mischievous acts. Nice one. (Report) Reply
