(Today’s Mumbai Mirror reports how all the candidates who had shoes thrown at them by members of the public, won the elections. See link.)

Cinderella found a prince when she lost her shoe,
Our MP-s won the polls when they ducked a shoe,
Horse-shoes are age-old symbols of luck,
So, if you, too, want to make a fast buck,
Ask a well-wisher to throw his footwear at you.

  1. Times are truly changing if thrown shoes are now symbols of good luck! Great limerick!


Some like prose and some like verse,
Enjoy these lines that we disburse,
We do the stuff in fun,
And should you not like one,
Please feel free, below, to curse ......
