Beth and Sam – Trifextra: Week Seventy-Nine

This weekend’s Trifextra challenge includes an image prompt. A limerick for the weekend, after the image.

Beth and Sam

Sam mourned his wife, awaiting a bus to ride
Beth, tired of tricks, needed a place to hide
Beth felt her heart swell big
And Sam finally gave a fig
Now Beth walks the streets with pride
Anyone can join in on the weekend’s Trifextra challenge to write 33 words from a prompt. Here’s this week’s prompt page:

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Ah, double entendre and/or innuendo. Good stuff!


  2. Lyn says:

    I might be wrong, but my reading of the limerick, is that Sam is no longer lonely and Beth no longer needs to hid (or ‘do’ tricks). If I’m right, that’s quite sweet really. If I’m wrong, I still like to think that way.


    • EagleAye says:

      You got it right across the board. Two people meet at a bus stop, both needing something to change their lives. They found that in each other. I know limericks are normally bawdy, but this one was intended to be sweet. 🙂


  3. Limericks for the win! 😀
