dealbreaker. a limerick.

Please know — this was not my idea!

I’m not sure if I should be flattered or offended that someone and someone thought a poem should be written on this topic… and that I was the ‘poet‘ to do it!

I’m going to go with questionably flattered. But, oh my, what does this say about my character?!?

I hope it provides a laugh.


I once met a man so gorgeous I panicked…
Overwhelmed by our flirtatious dynamic.
My feelings were strong
But it went horribly wrong
‘Cause at the beach he wore a banana hammock.


I am sure I shouldn’t ask this… but… now I wonder what others would suggest I write about…? Should you so desire, let me know in the comments. And I may or may not oblige. But hell, if I took on the ‘banana hammock‘ theme… nothing is off limits!

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
