When asked for whose cooking he craved
Why yours dear was answer he braved
Her pies brought on tears
His lies shorten years
He dies so that ears might be saved
Great News for those who enjoy100 laughs

“Well That Was That”; The Poetry of Martin Kloess is available at

    Martin, HaHaHaHaHaHaHa! I really like a very funny limerick which nevertheless hints of human nature in relationships: I’ll like your pies if you’ll like my … ! It’s so sad that he was done in by the wear-and-tear of bad pies and good lies!
    Respectfully, and with many thanks, Derdriu
