Seven Lives (Humor) - Poem by Savita Tyagi

A Hindu widow died cursing her husband
Met her surprised husband in heaven who said,
With your evil deeds you should be in hell wife!
The wicked woman replied her puzzled husband
Remember! I am to follow you for seven lives!

    Though it is not a limerick, it is quite humorous..... Poor man.... he has to bear his wife in all seven lives. Bearing a wicked wife one time in life itself is more than one can endure! (Report) Reply

    I don't know if this lost the rhyme scheme in translation. The limerick was very funny but the 1st,2nd and 5th lines should rhyme and the 3rd and 4th should rhyme. I am glad to see people try new forms.
    Peace

    Thank you Kelly for your feed back. Yes I used only two criteria. Humor and five lines.
