Carol's first and only limerick

There once was an awful tornado
The only thing that survived was a potato
Said the people to each other,
"Let us keep it as our brother
Until we find a tomato."

  1. Oh honey, I'm sorry we never gave you the little brother you wanted! My eyes have been opened. It's clear to me now that your limerick is a veiled reference to the pain you've suffered all these years! I guess I should have realized it back when you started dressing your pet potato "Spud" up in little outfits and baseball caps. I remember (with tears in my eyes) when you batted a softball to Spud and he couldn't hit it--because he didn't have arms! I have so many regrets my darling! --Momma Steele
