Single Dad Limericks II

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.


Single Dad Limericks II

This young man called Nevada his home

where he married with children to roam

now he find he’s divorced

a little undersourced

under homemade geodesic dome.

He once told his young daughter to heel

then she screamed “You don’t know how I feel!”

Being father is hard

he is caught of his guard

in the moments between every meal.

Then the Dad to his sons had his say

take your time when you find your own way

make sure that you think first

the day of twenty-first

in your life bad decisions can stay.

There was a young daughter named Lily

she thought father was being silly

he always wore shorts

is if on tennis courts

even when weather seemed bit chilly.

His two sons who would never do chores

in their rooms they would lock bedroom doors

“Get out now!” He would say,

“I do not have all day!

Take this mop and scrub all of our floors!"
