Limericks by Bob Aldrich

The Wildcat freshman has telegraphed
That they would join the NBA draft.
It’s no shock they’d declare,
They are headed to where
They’re paid millions to practice their craft.

_____________________________________________________
Kentucky hammered out quite a run.
Their big freshman team almost won.
Can Wildcat recruiters
Replace seven shooters
And build a repeat “One and Done”?

_____________________________________________________
As the warm days in April progress
I enjoy the springtime less and less
It’s when green start to pass
First to trees and the grass
Then to coffers of the IRS.
