Kleptomaniac Dog



















No, Dog, you might think you’re cute
But you have besmirched my repute.
You pissed off the neighbours
With your bad behaviours
And now you have stolen a boot!

........

Steal a look at what others have made of Tess's prompt at Magpie Tales.

  5. Send in the dog whisperer and get this poor pooch sorted out. Wish you could hear the laughter, Stafford. Thank you for sharing this brilliant limerick.

    1. I do wonder what dogs think. Like Kutamun, I thought the boot gave meaning to the body language of both man and dog.

    1. Thanks Nell, I think the dog is confused. He has just brought to his master something he knows he usually gets for himself only to be chastised!

    1. Thanks Bruce. I do too and am aware that most funny limericks are risqué, but there is a limit to what I will write for my blog.
