Yellow Boat Adventure



A fellow would frequently quote
His adventures in the big yellow boat.
And then came the truth
The story of his youth;
Being sea sick he never set afloat.


This Limerick is shared with Limerick-Off Monday.

      I lived in houseboat (32-ft. shanty with an engine) for several years on the Ohio River. And the floods came and went. I know what you mean about "...love waters, floods too."

      But I never suffered the utter destruction, devastation of EVERYTHING, like some. I'm certain you did not mean loving THAT attribute of a flood.
      PEACE, girl!

  9. Nice write, GS. I like your yellow boat too.

    It is fun to make up stories (so they say)
    but when one is caught that will be the end
    of everything for a while.

  10. LIKE your limerick, Green Speck. Never got seasick, I LIVED for the hours spent swinging and swaying with every passing tug-pushed set of barges.

    Only boats for me from now on are similar to your little Yellow Boat. (Now...I RIDE!!!)
    PEACE!
