Among all the fishermen you will meet today,None desires greater to go to Key West I dare say.While my fishing success has been lower than desired,My wish for one great experience has been firmly acquired.If enthusiasm counted I would certainly be on my way!

In writing a limerick one should always try to be funny,Like trying to fish in Key West without any money.And the harder I try the more possible it seems,Like imagining the answer to a pauper’s dreams.When it comes true the sea will be calm and the sky will be sunny!

Once a hen-pecked man wanted to go to Key West a fishin’.But first needed his grouchy wife’s permission.She refused because she felt left out and offendedWhen she saw the spa at Cheeca’s her objection ended.Now he is on Bud and Mary’s boat with swordfish as his mission.

In writing a limerick one should always try to be funny,Like trying to fish in Key West without any money.And the harder I try the more possible it seems,Like imagining the answer to a pauper’s dreams.When it comes true the sea will be calm and the sky will be sunny!
