I Raise you

a man was catching some rays
when a girl caught his gaze
he said with a sigh
on my oh my
how I wish she would stand there for days.

a man was asking for a raise
but his boss had noted the glaze of his gaze
and said with a  smirk
I've not seen any work
from you for days

  1. I love the title..i imagine a big story could be raised from it..the first was my favourite..always good to gaze at something warmly..

  2. Loved these limericks, GS, especially the first! I've been kind of stuck on the prompt, still tossing it around in my head. :-)
