Weekly Limerick Challenge (a bit late): Homonyms

So I spotted Rashmi’s prompt to write a limerick containing two or more homonyms, round about the day after her weekly challenge closed. A couple of days after that, I sat down and wrote a limerick. Then I went on holiday to a place that had no wifi, so didn’t get a chance to post it until now. But, better late than never, here it is:

Fate acts in a way that’s not fair

And seems, in her judgement, to err

When some lucky face

At the right time and place

Undeserving, becomes Fortune’s heir.


Err and heir are homonyms, right? Well, I had fun writing it anyway. Now, what’s the subject for this week’s challenge? I really need to get back on schedule!
