Limerick - RonO's Ramblings

Mar. 10th, 2007 09:07 am Limerick

This morning I woke up with the memory of having composed a limerick in my sleep, except I can only remember the first two lines and the fifth line:

One day I was out hunting fox
With Adam Smith, Ingles and Marx
So Marx offered me used socks

Of course now I have no idea if I really ever had a third and fourth line. I do have the impression that the third and fourth lines would have made made Marx offer of used socks inappropriate, and been a bit of a take on Marxism and communism.

So can anyone else think of what these lines might be? I won't be disappointed to learn that this is not original, since it is clearly something my subconscious dug up.

making these up

Smith bought my shoes fair,
but that left my feet bare,

we rode through a flood,
I lost my shoes in the mud,
