Limerick: My Name is Sioux

Here’s a silly little Limerick I just dreamed up, figuring to rhyme with the word Sioux:

She’s a young Sioux wearing a blue shoe.
But where is her blue shoe number two?
She’ll pull out her hair
‘Cause she bought her a pair….
And her one blue shoe is a blue shoe too few!

About William Barrons

Born 1926, in Cadillac, Michigan, the oldest boy of fourteen kids. Survived the Great Depression and joined the Marines the day after I turned 17. Could hardly wait to go fight those nasty Nazis and Japanese. Served 2½ war years in the Marines. Got married, went to college, had kids, re-joined the Marines in 1949 - in time for the Korean War. Became a Marine Second Lieutenant but was a Platoon Commander only for a short while as my sick wife nearly died and I had to resign to care for my family. Became a Telephone equipment engineer with AT&T in Chicago. Then was a kitchen and home remodeling designer for 22 years. Retired at age 69 and began to research and write novels. At age 89, I’m still at it!
