Wife Beater (Limerick) Poem by Ayman Parray

Wife Beater (Limerick)

Rating: 4.5


There was once a fat, ugly, wife beater
He was also a drunk and a cheater
His chair a hot iron rod
Made by the will of God
His ass got burned badly on that heater

God was perhaps too kind. Violence perpetrated against anyone ever is deplorable. To use it against a spouse is far beyond that. Luckily your poem avoids getting too depressing because 1. Justice is served 2. Limericks are just fun Nicely done Ayman

not bad for a 'first limerick'! rhyming and meter seem good. some would say the content is not 'limerick material' perhaps, but i like it enough! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - what was god thinking! ? ? Though he was fat, he could have been thin. All sorts of 'men' are capable of sin. God did what gods sometimes do. [God did make quite a few.] THAT 'man' should have gone in the 'reject' bin! ! bri :)

A brilliantly crafted limmerick Ayman. Fusing humour with seriousness is always a tough job that you did almost effortlessly.. Thanks for sharing..
