What's In A Name? (Limerick) - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Eileen Dover could not touch her toes
And that was not the end of her woes
Her little brother, Ben
Would make fun of her when
She struck such an inelegant pose

    Each one has a cause for woe! While some worry over serious things, others fret over insignificant things! Man's fussy nature and others tendency to make fun of minor failings are humorously brought out! (Report) Reply

    To be fair with all of my friends to whom English is a second language, The names used in this limerick are homophones Eileen Dover is- I leaned over and Ben Dover is- Bend over

    Failures are painful in life but if someone makes fun of it, it's more painful. Kelly Kurt's observation of petty incidents of life is amazing and a great poem on it is even more amazing. (Report) Reply

    I never like to see pettiness hurt another being
