Limericks by Bob Aldrich

Car phone use is causing distraction.
The answer’s improved interaction.
Drivers should make the choice
To turn text into voice,
And leaves hands for traffic reaction.
_____________________________________________________
Will September be the magic date
That we see an increased interest rate?
Until there’s inflation
Instead of deflation,
The calm Federal Reserve Board will wait.
______________________________________________________Who will be GOP’s nominee?
The campaign road ahead’s not toll free.
With the Clinton big stash
Of their source-tainted cash,
Candidates will need a money tree.
