An answer to "Limerick Outing" by Madeline Begun Kane in her Limerick-Off for January 5, 2014:
By Madeleine Begun Kane
A woman would often go out
With a sad-sack who’d grimace and pout.
When her friends warned that “he’s
A wet blanket and sleaze,”
She said, “Date-wise I’m having a drought.”
My answer (and protection of the "worse-half" of humanity):
Dousing the Cookout
Yet that fellow her friends thought a lout
Finally showed her her friends, without doubt,
Just as angst-filled as she--
Then he dumped that whole coterie out!
