A Limerick For Don and Diane Thornton

THERE IS SOMETHING I CANNOT RESIST

TO WRITE ABOUT THIS LOAD ON DI’s WRIST

IT STRIKES ME QUITE FUNNY

KNOWING THAT WITH VERY LITTLE MONEY

400 BANANAS BOUGHT JUST COULDN’T BE MISSED

 

OF COURSE WITH DON’S CLEVER EYE

NEVER WILL A GOOD DEAL GO BY

ADS AND COUPONS HE’LL USE

MARKET CASHIERS IN AWE, BUT AMUSED

A WEEK’S GROCERIES, FOR A BUCK NINETY-FIVE?

 

AND SO AS LIFE GOES ON

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A DI AND A DON

WHETHER IT’S BANANAS OR JELLO

SHE’S A GREAT GAL; HE A FRUGAL FELLOW

SHALL I GO ON AND ON AND ON??
