Limericks by Bob Aldrich

Notify every gator and snake
To ignore any Labor Day wake.
There may be some glimmers
From kayaks and swimmers
As we all get behind “Take the Lake”
________________________________________________________
For good health, some eat fish and not steak
And cut down on the ice cream and cake.
From the scales and the tape,
Some are in better shape
As we all get behind “Take the Lake”
_________________________________________________________Bikes and runners have records to break.
They have practiced until their legs ache
And the walker’s long goal
Is a round-the-lake stroll
As we all get behind “Take the Lake”
