DAY 28 - NAPOWRIMO 2011

For Mad Kane’s humour blog
And posted to Writers Island


GOOD FIGHT

A fellow who loved a good fight
Had a go at the wrong guy last night
One punch to the jaw
Sent him straight to the floor
And our fellow was out like a light

A fellow who loved a good fight
Said ‘Come on then’ to guys twice his height
To guys twice his weight
‘Who you lookin’ at, mate?’
And to everyone else, ‘I’m hard… right!’

A fellow who loves a good fight
Gets involved in a brawl every night
He warns when he starts
He can do martial arts
A bit like Bruce Lee, but not quite…

  5. Wow, that fellow sure was a great fan of fighting :-D Great fun!

    Reflecting on the "fight" issue mentioned by Viv above, very often I'm only too happy I'm not a man, or I would have probably been in constant physical fights... So, I'm saved :-)

  6. I was in a fight once. I think. Maybe. I can hardly remember.

    A limerick written by Stan
    showed a two-fisted, street-fightin man:
    a guy like Bruce Lee,
    but wimpy, like me.
    Making Peace is a far better plan.

  15. Oh shit, I was married to him a long time ago. And there is no such thing as a good fight. Not on a physical level. I'm definitely with Ron, though your limericks did make me grin.

  16. Thanks Elizabeth; Just for the record, I'd much rather turn the other cheek.

  17. Stan, I like all three, but that last one is the best. I enjoyed the martial arts take.
