View Full Version : A Limerick with a Lesson

A beginner in auto mechanics
Was experiencing tension and panics
For the laddie would fear
Cars would shift out of gear
So his doctor prescribed him some Xanax

Now Xanax can be habit forming
And the lads doc was so misinforming
He took more than he ought
And the plight that this brought
Was at work, for he wasn't performing

Aye, the med made this laddie so tired
That in April, the poor boy was fired
His recall was quite blurred
As to what had occurred
And just how his dilemma transpired

There once was a boy good with gadgets
But his story, alas, it was tragic
Too late he discerned
But the lesson he learned
Is that no med has wonders like magic

I'm changing the first 2 lines of the last verse to:

A young and aspiring mechanic
Has a story, alas, that is tragic
