There was an old man who had a bin

and in it he chucked all of his sin

mistakes and failures

selfish behavior

and a measure of doubt thrown in.


A Limerick written for Poetry Jam

    I like this a lot, Alan. Really quite profound. I think it is human to doubt… but hopefully, as time goes on, it will disappear along with the sin!
