Wednesday #limerick: dependence, kept, rumple

Each Wednesday, I compose a limerick based on the prompt from Three Word Wednesday. Today's words are: dependence, kept, rumple

Must I remain a kept man?
Of dependence I'm surely no fan.
Though my skill with bump-bump'll
Keep her sheets a'rumple,
Is this how I saw my life's plan?

  1. haha... love the play with words.

  2. Love it - and similar to my own take on these words (having to do with relationships). Thanks for the laugh this morning!

  3. You don't seem to sad with the situation. ;)

  4. No, I don't like to laugh. It reminds me of Helen, my ex-girlfriend who taught me...well, you don't want to hear my story. Let's just say I don't have ninety-nine cents. That's it. Yes, that's the ticket.

  5. Lol, love the way you have used the prompt words. :)
