NaPoWriMo 2018-21 -- Day 21, a Limerick

My poem, a Limerick

There once was a narky young lad
Turned others off and girls real bad
Then along came Sally
Drug him in the alley
Scared bejesus knew he'd been had

  - I'm linked to Day Twenty-one of the NaPoWriMo,  http://www.napowrimo.net/day-twenty-one-3/ For National Poetry Month we are writing a new poem for every day in April.  We have nine days remaining. 

Today we studied Narkissis and of his shyness with girls. Somehow he would attract ladies and in his shyness lead them on. Most would then leave. But two of the women were so enamored with him that they took drastic measures when they were ditched.

Then we were to write our thoughts after reading of this young Greek lad. 

  - I'm also writing for http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2018/04/day-21-mythical-creatures.html?m=1 . He also wants us to write after observing some mythical creatures.

Havelock Ellis, at late 19th-century psychologist, believed narcissism resulted in obsessive masturbation, where one is one's own sex object. Then along came Sally!

pretending being shy
when really he was sly
but the price must be paid
for all ladies he'd laid
