Three Word Wednesday



An American Sentence:

Madoff's viral scheme of deception flamed panic and burned common sense.

AND

A Loose Limerick

Once upon a boom and bubble,
in the land of greed and trouble,
there schemed a ponzi crook
whose crass deception took
world wide panic straight to rubble.

I particularly enjoyed the loose limerick. A timely piece that made me chuckle.

Great stuff Sue. You hit it on the nail. I just love your loose limerick.
It made me smile and there is not much to smile about at these days.

I love this idea. How about the same story, only 50 words, told in three different ways?
