Keep Your Mouth Shut!

Poetry By: bobthebuilder

Tags: Humor, Limerick

Taking a stab at limerick. I really tried to keep to the rhythm, but it is a little rough at times. It's one poem in limerick style stanzas. Bare with me and try to read it limerick style, you know, like.. there once was a man from Nantucket.. Hope it gives you a chuckle.

Keep your Mouth Shut!

The question comes up your not sure but,
your choices all fall in the same rut.
So no matter your answer
it'll end in disaster.
It's better to just keep your mouth shut!

"Oh Honey, does this make me look fat?"
What the hell are you saying to that?
There's no point in tryin,
in the mirror she's eyein.
I think it's time to look for the cat!

The boss asks, "Do you think I'm stupid?"
Because of something he knows you did.
There's no point denyin,
you better start tryin,
to hide and pretend your off the grid!

The cop has you pulled to the shoulder.
"Do you know why I pulled you over?"
Pretend that your thinkin,
while your heart is sinkin,
but don't go and do him a favor!

Your girlfriend asks, "Have you been drinking?
We're going out, what are you thinking?"
It will be a long night,
if you don't get this right,
so get those two wine glasses clinking!

"Do you just think money grows on trees?"
He's looking right at your new booties.
Well distract him you must,
you can turn him to dust.
Just stand up and show him your boobies!

So take it from me follow your gut,
and just go with this no matter what.
If you want to keep livin,
then no answer be givin.
Just remember to keep your Mouth shut!
