Limerick



A young man fought with all his might,
To win a girl's heart was his target,
Another person won her attention,
A big, fat pocket was her mission,
So sad, the man walked out of the fight.

  3. Aww this is sad. But such thing happens in real life. Some people prefer money over love, thinking it would make them happy. A sensitive post, Balqis. :-)

  5. Hahaha....that's what usually happens with the men because women want security (monetary mainly) more than anything. XD

  6. It might just be better for him, thought it takes time to understand it. Some people are made for us and others are not.
    Nice poetry Balqis, a different style for a change!

  7. I am not surprised by the way you make so easy a difficult task since you are just using the talent you have. Which is a lot!

    You show in so few words one of the most interesting way relationships go nowadays.

    Refering to a very popular cards game where each card has a value and can "defeat" others, as the «ace» which is the most powerful and have not any other that could win it, there is a common adage, or saying that states:

    "Wallet defeats beau", and it is true! :)))

    A very good limerick, BB!!

    1. Thank you so much for your comments, Od. You know how life is nowadays. Some look for love, while others might be so materialistic. The adage is so true indeed. People have choices, right? So, just let them be. :)
