Thin Skin – A linked limerick

Such a marvellous thing is my skin

It helps keep my blood and guts in

It keeps the rain out

But now there’s no doubt

It is getting increasingly thin


Maybe I’ve just turned a page

It’s a battle my body must wage

I develop strange hues

And so easily bruise

It’s something to do with my age

Now I’ve started you may not be able to stop me!

    (((HUGS))) 🙂
    PS….as we become more well-seasoned we can all relate to this skin thinning. 🙂 Okay, I’ll admit it…the “…helps keep my blood and guts in…” made me snort-laugh!!! 😀

      1. The squirrel recordings were on my phone voice recorder with no editing at all. For the limericks I used Audacity and took out excess pauses. I’m going to try Garage Band too to attempt background effects.

  2. Great and reminds me of Roy Bailey’s song ‘ You need skin, take good care of it, don’t harm a hair of it, what would you do without it! My kids used to sing along to it too way into their teen years!
