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”
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
