I need a serious limerick, suitable for reading at a memorial service. Does such an animal exist? It definitely should not contain the word Nantucket.
I’m no poet (don’t I know it), but here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
The soul flies away like a dove,
When god calls us home from above.
We live our short lives,
As husbands and wives,
In the end all that matters is love.
Any other suggestions?
