LIMERICKS play on words,
For fun-but some it disturbs…
When it says “to sit down”

Is there WAS a CONVERSATION,
Earlier on, to eye!
In many places people sit down,

He didn’t want to put all that down (in writing!).-
THE REASON WHY–involves limerick rules,
Rhythm and word count make useful tools…
Wanted word count for that last line
the same as the first (with which it rhymed)–
although he could have dragged the last line as long as he needed or wanted to—(take a deep breath)—-he didn’t want to lose conciseness of his jewels!
