A three part linked limerick.
|From Missoula with Love
When once an old man from Missoula
bought tickets for Hilo to hula
along came an illness
that threatened to kill us
and now he's stuck home with his moolah.
He shuffles alone in his slippers,
drinks cold coffee black for his jitters;
he dreams of a Kona
and cries out, Ramona!
if only to hula and kiss her.
Ramona grinds wheat by the kilo
then stretches and butters the phyllo
with stiletto at hand
twirls her gold wedding band
and longs for her lover in Hilo.
