Frustrated Harry

There was a man named frustrated Husband Harry

Getting burnt food from his wife became a mystery

 With honey-coated words, he extracted the reasons,

 Few SM groups were her new obsessions

So to avoid the arguments, became a home-chef he, poor Mr. Harry

*Limerick is fun and a five-line poem with the rhyming pattern AABBA.  Line 1: 7-10 syllables. Line 2: 7-10 syllables

Line 3: 5-7 syllables. Line 4: 5-7 syllables.Line 5: 7-10 syllables

Note: Though in my poem, I haven’t followed the syllables count.

An educator by profession but a word weaver by passion. She likes to enjoy little things in life, not waiting for the bigger ones to come her way.Β  She had done her graduation in the medical stream but often was lost in the literal beauty of words. So after graduation, she studied literature and did her MPhil in English. She believes that the secret ingredient for spreading happiness is writing. So, whenever her energetic kids permit, she expresses her thoughts in words. Writing keeps her going and has given a new shape to her life.
