A Financial Limerick from Dr. Goose

This week we asked listeners to send us their haiku about the economy, and you responded in droves.  We also got one limerick by a listener calling himself "Dr. Goose."

The New American Dream

The Smiths of 212 Willow Lane
Thought their mortgage a terrible strain.
They defaulted and then,
moved next door to 210
Where they rent and are solvent a-gain.

We talk to listener David Lefkovits about how he started writing limericks for his blog, Limericks Economiques.

I like to write poems for fun
I'm telling the truth, it's no pun
When a new rhyme begins
I'm on needles and pins
And filled with delight when it's done

Oh, I certainly do enjoy a fine limerick, and one that is topical is thrice enjoyable. Merci.
