Viscount Bob

The spoiled rich guy

His name was Viscount Bob

He often behaved like a snob

Drove a fancy car

And vacationed afar

But never held a job.


This is the first limerick I wrote. The name, Limerick Bob came to me, but as I wrote, I decided a spoiled rich kid would better fit what I had in mind, therefore the name change.

The limerick challenge sounded like a lot of fun, and after a couple of friends encouraged me, I decided to give it a try. I'm not a poet and this is my first attempt at writing limericks. I wrote four, two of which are reflective while the other two are a bit humorous.

    This limerick made me smile. I don't know any Bobs, I guess that says a lot about my circle of friends. But I can well imagine a person like this. Well done, Joan!

    Ha! Funny. I'd like to be a viscount if that's typical.
