Self Deprecation (Limerick)

Rating: 5.0

It requires little more than a glance
To notice I don't fit in my pants
My name rhymes with jelly
But I, with large belly
Enjoy a laugh at my own expanse

I only write when 'inspiration' strikes. It hasn't struck often lately.

What I like about you Kelly, you write poetry when you feel icclined by inspiration, a humble quality that I do admire, and by doing so...your poems are fresh and very much appreciated

Thank you, Bill. I would like inspiration to strike more often, but it's a fickle thing.

A perfect limerick! I particularly liked the use of the word 'expanse' in the poem.
