My wife enjoys a hot beverage in the morning but has given up coffee for lent. In support of her, I too, brew tea. 

Gary Hallock (Note: I have added a new limerick verse below as well.)

After Julius Caesar was asked by his friend what type of music he liked, he replied, "Etude, Brutus."

Ides of March was a murderous day

For J. Caesar in Shakespeare's big play.

            Caesar wanted to know

            Who'd delivered the blow.

So he took a wild stab, "Et tu, Bruté?"


A conspiring young waitress named Faye

Took his order of seafood that day.

            Said, "What do you want, Sir?"

            Then stabbed with a dagger.

Caesar grimaced and said, "Et-ou-ffé!"  (Et tu, Faye!)

This month, our wordplay hits a peak

We all “Marched 4th” one day last week

And then came “pi day” 

Now it’s Friday

When we play at “ide & seek”

Gary Hallock


Upon three great dates, did we play

“March madness,” some people may say

When you pull off that trick

Some call it a “hat trick”

But sadly, this ain’t hat trick’s day
