The Truth – limerick

There was an old lady named Ruth
Who really delighted in truth
She wrote a new line
Along with some wine
She was an incredible sleuth

There was an old lady named Bess
Who really was very ruthless
She faked she was sick
Then hit me with a stick
And that is the truth more or less

  1. I love this! It has a childlike sense of humor. I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of or read “The Twits” by Roald Dahl, but your limerick reminds me of Mrs. Twit who liked to hit children and small animals with her cane, much like your Bess and her stick!
