Acrostics Only: Slang (a limerick)


Shucks, dog gone to heck, o' phooey

Love my four letter words, Louie

A little verse for sis

Never taught me to kiss

God loves my slang—cuss all hooey

Jim this is adorable! I love a good limerick! I was stressing about doing the Limerick/Acrostic but once I got into it I was ok. Reading yours help as well1

That is a good Acrostic limerick I see but must tell you I'm not well versed in slang words. Of course this made sense and brought some smiles too!!
