Limerick Advocating For The Right-To-Life

LIMERICK FOR LIFE

By

Edward J. Bradley

 

Children Start-Out In The Womb.

The Aging End-Up In The Tomb.

Destruction Of Either

Benefits Neither.

As Life For Both Ends Much Too Soon.

Short, sweet and to the point. I love a poem like that. So few words invoke so many feelings and thoughts. Thank you

There's nothing much more to say: you captured the essence of it. Well done, absurdly condescending as it is for a novice such as I to say so to you.

A delightful limerick; an entertaining look at the human condition from birth to death; nicely done. --Joe

Pithy in a brillient way, brilliently pithy.

...have you been to Ireland (where I am, Dublin City), cause I am sure I have met you before. Your face is so familiour.

Thank you for the compliment/s.

Sorry! Have not been to Ireland. All of my Irish immigrant ancestors arrived around 1840 +/- a year or 2. Where I live, in Albany, N.Y., there are many people of Irish ancestry. Many of whom bear a striking resemblance to one another. This is true in my case. I hope this person, you recall, treated you well and has not committed a crime. My luck, with respect to such matters, has not always been good.

My American ancestry is comprised, roughly, of 65% Irish, 15% Pennsylvania Dutch(Deutche/German/Prussian), 10% English, 5% Dutch and 5% Spanish(Irish) & Italian(Roman). Think this adds up 100%.

Religious affiliations were: Roman Catholic, Dutch Reformed, Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, Anabaptist(Amish/Mennonite), Mormon, etc.? Each having it's own share of hypocrites.

For a Dubliner, like yourself, this may not be a pretty picture. But! It is typically American. As am I. Irish-American! That is!

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.

FANTASTIC.
A wonderful theme to choose, and then to slap it in the light-hearted limerick formula, beautiful!

Beautifully and very well said. It should be a slogan for pro life.

Thank you for reading, commenting and the compliment. I wish this issue and problem could be resolved, appropriately, by a mere slogan, poem and/or limerick. Hopefully, it will be able to place some additional weight on the Godly side of the argument/debate. In the minds of those who may read it.

Thank you again.

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley
