Wednesday #limerick: immobile, proximity, retribution

Today's words for Three Word Wednesday are: immobile, proximity, retribution

I'm immobile, and so your affinity
For sharp knives in my close proximity
Makes me fear retribution
For my "redistribution"
Of your wife, your car and your big TV.

Beware the 99%. They will sneak into your house and take everything you've worked so hard to accumulate.

Fortunately, one of the benefits of having a mansion is that, after you catch the guy who took your stuff, one of the rooms in the basement makes a perfect place to... "interview" the thief.

  1. well this one really made me think.

  2. I think we have to beware anyone. I believe that the power is in the ballot. I know there is a difference of opinion and respect that. Your words are telling and express beliefs. That is what poets MUST do. Hope you will visit mine:

  3. I expect you'll get a mixed reception for this one. I could imagine the thief with a wife over his shoulder, why wasn't she screaming or shouldn't I ask?

  4. Must admit, I would really love to know what prompted this limerick. It sounds like there must be a personal story behind it.

  5. What are you going to do? Sick your dogs on me? Or your bees? Or your dogs that bark, and when they bark they spit bees at you?

  6. A case for The Justice Giver, I think, but on whose side?

  7. This kind of redistribution always leads to retribution. Great poem!
