A limerick to start June

This month, Tanita challenged us to write limericks about the birds and the bees, however we interpreted it. Owing to my being away this entire week at an art workshop in St. Petersburg, Florida, I only managed to write one (though I was supposed to write three). So without further ado, here it is:

When talk turns to birds and to bees,
some people get weak at the knees.
They giggle and squawk
They’d rather not talk
of sex or venereal disease.

Yeah, we're too embarrassed by this topic by far in this country! Love the giggle and squawk:>)

I didn't think about it until after I wrote it, but "a wiggle in a walk, and a giggle and a squawk" is a line from a song by the Big Bopper.

I just went on a hike by a local lake last week with my 9 year old granddaughter, and we encountered many, many "scrambling" large fish that we were told later were mating. More than one struggled to tell us what was happening! "They'd rather not talk" - so true!

Hahahaha! I wondered if anyone would take birds and bees literally. You made me laugh out loud, so I'm glad you did!
