Open Link Monday at the imaginary garden

Here I am, back from the mid-Atlantic and from Europe, back to my old ways again for Open Link Monday at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads. All I have to offer is a limerick I wrote for Madeleine Kane's blog.
However, it is the second anniversary of Mad Kane Limericks, so I did take more than five minutes to write the following, and I scrambled through cyberspace for a drawing, if that makes any difference.

A fellow who wanted a raise
proceeded his new boss to praise
but his boot-licking
earned him butt-kicking
when his own work was appraised

I'm still not thrilled with my use of "praise" and "appraised" but there we are, it's Monday and my brain is on strike. Again. Tsk. As I always say, no one warned me I'd turn into an old lady.

Nice Kay. Limerick's are fun to write. This one is a fun read like it should be. No shoddy work here per my appraisal.
